Reno Omokri, a former aide of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has attacked Nigerians who follow the Big Brother Naija reality show.
Reno, in a series of tweets following the BBNaija Sunday Night eviction, said those who are following the show are wasting their time following things that doesn’t add positive value to their life, saying they could have spent the time spent watching who gets evicted rather on evicting poverty out of their life.
He tweeted: “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?
