Big Brother Naija Reality TV show (MultiChoice) organizers came out to address the issue concerning why the reality show was hosted and shot in South Africa and not Nigeria. The
Organisers made it known that hosting the show in South Africa, would enable it achieve high production and meet timelines.
According to a statement issued by Caroline Oghuma on behalf of the company, explained that the shooting of the show in South Africa would enable it use its fully equipped house.
“We have a fully equipped house in South Africa, which is used for the Big Brother shows.
“This means that we are able to achieve high production values whilst meeting tight timelines and ensuring the show comes to our viewers on time as planned, and with the same globally renowned quality.
Regardless, FG has directed the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to investigate the circumstances surrounding the reported shooting in South Africa of the ongoing Big Brother Nigeria Reality Show.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement directed the NBC to determine whether Multichoice, by shooting the show in South Africa, had breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code in any way.
