TRENDING: ‘They won’t come out to vote’ — Nigerians react to crowd at BBNaija auditions


 

The Big Brother Naija 2019 auditions are ongoing in various parts of the country and will continue on Saturday, February 2.

This is the first time the reality TV show will be hosted in Lagos and there has been an outpour of people hoping to scale through auditions to become housemates.

Nigerians took to the social media platform to express their opinions from various perspectives.

Here is what they had to say:

Call for a protest about #EndASUUStrike or anything about the future of Nigeria youths you are not likely to see 1% of this crowd. Are we a serious nation at all?


Omoba@DAfricanVoice

Well said! They won’t even come out in this magnitude to vote in February/March because nobody cares about Nigeria, our youths are not patriotic. It’s all about “how I go blow?” and social media but they forget that if the soil isn’t right, even the best seed won’t bloom!#BBnaija

If there are so many people here today for the #BBNaija2019Auditions in #Ibadan, I wonder how Lagos is going to be like #BBNaija #BBNaija2019 #IbadanAuditions

Maybe if ASUU were not on strike; maybe if graduates had a high chance of getting a fairly good paying job after school; maybe if our society celebrated brains and innovations with the same amount of money they do natural talents; then maybe this won't be happening at #BBNaija

The hustle is real #BBNaija

No one@ilynem

The crowd at the #BBnaija auditions is proof of our flawed value system and our failed government. I am not against anyone going to audition for it, but when this is what majority of our youth see as a way to escape poverty, then we have a serious problem.

#BBNaija It wasn't an audition please..

Auditioning I know about actually deals with *Knowing* your participants.
All they did was bring out some cards (joker)..Gave it to us all and asked.
What is special about that card you are holding.
People started using quotes for card

Why can't they give the folks tags, attend to them in say batches of 100 so as to avoid possibly people swooning or fainting. Or in worst case scenarios, dying?
As done below?#BBNaija

Well #BBNaija is the fastest way to STARDOM. From not being known on your street, to being a celebrity. I’m not surprised at the turn up. But how are they gon’ select 16-20 ppl from about 20k ppl nationwide?
