Executive Director, National Film and Video Censors Board, Mr. Adedayo Thomas, says the next edition of Big Brother Nigeria reality show should be hosted in the country.

Thomas, in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja, said this while expressing displeasure on why a Nigerian show was being held in South Africa.

NAN reports that the #BBNaija, which was introduced in 2006, is a special Nigerian version of the continental show Big Brother Africa.

The 2018 edition is its second consecutive running year, as it had previously suffered a 10-year hiatus after holding its first edition in 2006.

Thomas said: “If it is Big Brother Africa, they can host that anywhere; but the one for Nigeria should be hosted in Nigeria. .
. “If the organisers are talking about lack of available infrastructure as an excuse, then how is MTN operating successfully 24/7 in this same country? “If MTN, a similar South African company, has been surviving in this country, then I don’t think anybody has an excuse for not hosting BBNaija in Nigeria.
