Ebuka Obi Uchendu, host of the Big Brother Naija Show, has reacted to the recent trend of aspiring contestants putting their pictures side-by-side with the Big Brother Naija Logo, soliciting for support when the audition hasn’t even started.
This came after a Twitter user made the inquiry “@dstvnigeria pls did you guys give out information for people to start attaching their pictures with the BBN logo and solicit for support Cos I’ve been seeing a lot of that? @africamagictv @Ebuka”
Ebuka responded thus; “Like, are your followers the ones auditioning? Or you think if auditions were done on social media that wouldn’t have been specifically announced? I don’t get”
Continuing he wrote; “In fact, you’re probably even doing yourself more harm. A major element of Big Brother is secrecy and surprise but you think announcing your intentions on social media is a bright idea… Toh!”
A user then replied; “They probably thinking if they even get voted in to the #BBNaija house. More followers = more votes.”
Then Ebuka responded; “If the organizers wanted people with followers on the show, they know exactly where to get them. More than half the housemates last season had less than 1000 Instagram followers on the day the show started.”
In conclusion; You risk disqualification from the audition putting your photos side-by-side the Big Brother Naija Logo!
