It is painful Statistics of what should be an illicit business on Big Brother Naija show
Newsflash247 gathered that the total number of votes cast during Britain Got talent 2017 = 6.2million votes
Also, the total number of votes cast during American got talent 2017 = 52.1million votes.
Source gathered that the American population is twice Nigeria’s population.
Mind you, most of the votes cast on either Britain or American got talent are ‘absolutely free’ because you can vote on their websites and on the Apps without paying a dime.
Newsflash247 gathered that the total number of votes cast during “Big Brother Nigeria” 2018 = 170million votes at the rate of N30 per SMS for a show that contributes absolutely nothing to their lives.
It is neither a talent show or life enhancing or promoting show. A show where adults are kept in a cage to freely give and take s-x on National Television, while the organisers make more money from the youths.
If INEC organises general election this weekend and ask Nigerian youths to vote on their mobile phones at N10 per SMS to elect leaders that will shape their futures & the country, they will ask Nigerian Government to credit their accounts 1st before they will agree to vote in that magnitude.
“Wasted Generation” ~ Prof. Wole Soyinka called them.
“A generation that play too much, sleep too much and engage in idle chatter and gossip” ~ Chief Obafemi Awolowo foresaw
A generation of illiterate graduates ~ Atiku Abubakar called them in 2016
A generation that are constantly not concerned about the deteriorating conditions of their senses & not bothered about their own future~ Osquare78 knows them.
We all must be wary of this generation…. they are the larger chunk of Nigerian population.
It is pathetic. 170 Million votes Multiplied by N30 = N 5.1 billion and the winner got N25 million plus an SUV worth N12 million a trip and electronics.
To destroy the future, destroy the seed (children and youths)…
Pray for Nigeria youths to open their eyes and for God to touch the hearts of those who engage in such illicit business.
