Popular Nigerian Lawyer and Author, Reno Omokri has slammed viewers of the ongoing reality show, Big Brother Naija for focusing on the show at the expense of real life issues.
In a series of posts on Twitter, Reno Omokri shared his grief for Nigerians. According to him, in the last two months, viewers have paid more attention to who gets evicted from the house, rather than focusing on getting rich and evicting poverty from their lives.
Omokri said that the price of rice has increased exponentially and some youths have made millions from the opportunity, while some people can only brag about being current about the show.
His tweet reads,
“You are so focused on who gets evicted from the #BBNaija house. If only you were as focused on getting poverty evicted from your life. For 2 months, you suspended your life to focus on BBN. Others used that time to suspend poverty from their life.
“The price of rice has increased by 60% since July, when #BBNaija started. Many youths have made millions buying rice from Kebbi and Jigawa and selling it in Lagos and Port Harcourt. But, all you can boast of in that time is being up to date on BBN!.
“In the last 2 months, you have thought and talked more about #BBNaija, than about your life’s purpose. If there was a PhD in BBN, you would have earned it, along with a Masters in Poverty. Don’t you know your life follows your dominant thoughts?”
