The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has criticised the on going Big Brother Nigeria reality show as “misrepresenting the goodness and integrity of the Nigerian youths”.
Oba Adeyeye made the assertion while playing host to members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria in his palace at Ile Ife, Osun, and thereby suggested a replacement for the reality show.
As a replacement, he suggested a reality show that would project the country’s values, cultures, and traditions.
He suggested that the new show could be tagged “The Big Nigeria Reality Show”.
“The proposed show will be structured in a way that young professionals, talented individuals, and others across several fields of endeavour will be showcased and helped to reach their peak.
“This would help the participants and also help viewers to have access to people that can be seen as role models,” Ooni added.
The royal father, who stressed the need for participation of more youths in leadership, lamented that the youths have misplaced their priorities and must redress it as a matter of urgent public importance.
