LAI MOHAMMED ORDERS NBC TO STOP BB NAIJA OVER COVID-19.
The Minister of Information and Culture , Lai Mohammed , has asked the National Broadcasting Commission to halt the transmission of TV reality show , Big Brother Naija .
The minister said the need to stop the reality show , which entered its fifth season on July 20 , became imperative due to the coronavirus pandemic.
On Wednesday , Acting Director -General of the NBC , Armstrong Idachaba, told senior management members of the commission at a meeting that he had been directed by the minister to shut down the show , according to TheCable .
Mohammed reportedly wanted the letter shutting down the show to come from the NBC because of the general opinion that he is bent on sending MultiChoice Ltd , producers of the show , out of Nigeria .
The organisers also said the housemates went through mandatory two- week isolation before the commencement of the show and that the BBN House had been disinfected and rearranged to ensure physical distancing , in addition to the elimination of live audience .
