Shetima who stated this at a press conference stressed that the show was made to look like a blue film, adding that a lot of people watched it to see acts of immorality.
He said, “It’s a calamity for me; I never believed in BBNaija and I don’t think it’s fair because the show is an act of immorality. Such a spectacle should not be encouraged.
“I have often said that this show encourages immorality and that the Nigerian government should ban it. It should not be allowed to be broadcast in our country.
“You see, a lot of people are watching to see acts of immorality, these sexual things, flaunting their nudity, and they made it look like a ‘blue film’, so that is to be discouraged.
“I urge true lovers of the country to join hands and draw the government’s attention to the implication of this program which should be discouraged.”
