The controversy surrounding popular reality show, Big Brother Nigeria has taken a twist as the Federal Government has ordered the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to investigate why the show is being shot in South Africa.
In a statement released today January 24, minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed ordered the NBC to determine whether Multi-Choice had breached Nigerian Broadcasting Code by choosing to host the show in South Africa.
Amongst other things, the NBC is also to investigate the issue of possible deceit since unsuspecting members of the public were not told that the show would be staged outside Nigeria.
As a country of laws, only the outcome of the investigation will determine our next line of action.
The minister said just as he appealed for calm while the NBC investigates the issue and submits its findings.
