The ongoing Big Brother Nigeria, which is being held in South Africa is no more welcomed in the country. According to reports, South Africans who reside in Linden, Cape Town are not in support of Big Brother Nigeria being shot in SA.
Their complaints and utmost concern is that the reality TV show is causing nuisance in their country. This was stated by some of the residents and restaurants around 4th Avenue close, where the BBN production house is located.
They complained that the house generates lots of controversies and is a major source of noise pollution in the area.
The Ward Councilor, Nicole van Dyk, while confirming the complaints lodged, told Channel 24 that the complaints are manageable. He said:
“There have been complaints but the number has not been overwhelming. Big Brother definitely has made an effort to quiet down their studios and the house itself. In total, I’ve received 4 complaints since it began.”
In response to the complaints, M-net says it is aware of the recent noise concerns raised by residents and business owners near the Big Brother house. The media company assured that the complaints will be dealt with in no time.
The producers said:
“Please be assured that the producers, Endemol Shine Africa, have already taken steps to reduce the noise levels so that both the residents, surrounding businesses and the Big Brother production can continue to reside and work amicably alongside each other.”
Meanwhile, Sunday 5th February was emotional for the housemates as the first eviction took place. Last week, three housemates; Somadina, Miyonse, and raunchy Miss Gifty were nominated for possible eviction this past weekend.
However, Gifty luckily escaped the eviction panel as her name was replaced with Efe’s on the nomination list by the then Head-of-House, Igwe Cocoice.
After tolls of votes by the audience, Efe was saved at the expense of Miyonse and Soma (who had the least votes). The votes were independently verified by Steve Mabusela of Delloitte and co. South Africa.
In line with complaints of the BBN show causing a nuisance, one Ekwelike Stanley took to Twitter on Saturday 4th February to air is displeasure about the flirtatious exhibition of his girlfriend who is currently in the Big Brother Nigeria house.
Stanley claims to be the boyfriend of Gifty, the same housemate who allegedly fled from her Nollywood-actor husband some months ago.
In a series of tweets, Stanley shared photos and a video of him and Gifty in bed said with the caption: “I want the world to know that someone somewhere is getting hurt and Big Brother is making money off my pain.”
Twitter users came for Stanley’s neck immediately, accusing him of seeking fame from the BBN contestant and not sympathy.
Stanley denied the allegation and silenced his accusers with the tweet: “I still love her, so we will keep voting for her.”
Gifty is said to be the most beautiful and most erotic housemate in the ongoing show. Her beauty and sexy moves might just be her strategy in staying rooted in the house.
