#BBNaija: Television As Madness by Reuben Abati

What a relief! So, the Big Brother Naija reality television programme is finally over. It ended Sunday evening with 23-year old Efe Michael Ejemba, University of Jos graduate of Economics and singer winning the N25 million + SUV at stake, with 57.6% of the votes from over 24 million voters across Africa.  Warri, where Efe’s family lives, erupted in excitement. At the Multichoice viewing centre in Ikeja, Lagos, where Katung Aduwak took charge so brilliantly, there was a similar eruption of incandescent joy. I was relieved because for about 70 days, the Big Brother Naija show was a big distraction, crass capitalism at its most cynical edge, a source of unmanageable madness in homes and on the streets. Now that it is over, it is time for some honest frank talk for the attention of all stakeholders involved.

Let me start with the lessons, on a positive note, before delivering the blows. Lesson one: In a very instructive manner, the Big Brother Naija reality television show promoted the ideas of choice and people power at the heart of democracy. Televised across Africa, the viewers had the final say in determining who stayed in the house or left during eviction moments on Sundays. The votes were collated, audited and confirmed by Deloitte, a firm of auditors and thus, the viewer as the voter determined the outcomes. In that regard, a reality show of that sort promoted a consciousness of democracy, choice and influence and it further explained why the people from Nigeria to Cape Agulhas all the way up to the Mediterranean sea took fierce ownership of the programme. In a continent where power is the ultimate aphrodisiac and every access to power, fame and influence is seen as an opportunity to oppress and demean, whatever is done to promote a consciousness of choice and the civil society is laudable.  Multichoice, thanks.

Lesson Two: in every business concept, perseverance pays.  Multichoice has been running its Big Brother Naija and Big Brother Africa concepts for a number of years. Apparently, this year’s Big Brother Naija has been the most impactful, the most profitable and probably also, the most exciting.  In one week, over 11 million persons voted to determine the eviction. In the final week of the programme, over 24 million persons voted – that is more than the total number of persons who voted in the Nigerian Presidential election in 2015.  This year, Multichoice has made more money from the Big Brother franchise than it has ever done. The programme was sponsored by PayPorte, and with all the voting, and the money spent on recharge cards, Big Brother and Multichoice are the biggest winners. In the end, it is all about business and profit. Everybody has been used. In business, once you have a good, attractive product and you can capture the market, you can fool everybody and make profit.  Multichoice, weh done - in Falz, the bad guy’s voice.

Lesson three: humility pays. At the end of the day, in the last week of the programme, the decision by the viewing public was a moral, sentimental one. The biggest star of the programme was, I don’t know what you think, TBOSS (real name: Tokunbo Idowu), half Nigerian, half-Romanian. She dominated the space with her Jezebelic antics, even got some of the male participants ousted by entrapping and outsmarting them with her sexual wiles. She projected herself as a sex object, the ultimate manipulator, the champion Delilah of the Big Brother Africa series. She even made a joke of the entire Big Brother concept by saying she didn’t need the money and if she won, she would spend it in two weeks to pay off debts, and in any case, she had men hitting on her, offering to take her on a ride in their private jets. She played the role of a female barracuda.

Given her looks and talents, she would have been a perfect winner. She would have looked good on the billboards. But she lost because of her arrogance. Attitude is everything: this is the lesson of TBOSS’s disgrace and humiliation. When she was sent out of the House as the second runner up, the viewing centre in Ikeja, Lagos, including Kemen whose nemesis she was,  danced in joy. “They are taunting me?” she asked Ebuka, the anchor. No, sweetheart, they were making a far more serious statement about you.  The melodramatic ending of Big Brother Naija 2017 is its only redeeming outcome.

Bisola, the first runner up does not even have a degree but she showed talent and resolve, even if her whorish flirtation with Thin Tall Tony is so cheap and self-denigrating.  Her One-Nigeria consolation prize is something big she should take seriously. Efe won because of his humility. He is considered the poorest and the most needy of the contestants. Patrons of the programme chose to vote for the contestant who looked and sounded like he would need the money and the opportunity. They gave him a chance in life, although the organizers must ensure that going forward, the show does not become a poverty alleviation scheme.

Bisola came second because she too looked like she needed help. Debbie Rise and Marvis also made the finals, but that was meant to be a great compliment to their good conduct, but they didn’t have enough support to make it to the top. TBOSS is the main star who lost. I hope she was taken out of South Africa with a private jet or maybe a submarine! Beauty is not everything, baby.

Lesson four: Marketing helps. Branding is everything. Propaganda is profitable. Packaging is nice. Big Brother Naija is nothing but marketing, branding, propaganda, and packaging. A reality show is supposed to be nothing but reality, virtual reality as it happens, but let no one deceive you, everything that happened in the 70 days of BBNaija was packaged, marketed, carefully branded and manipulated. Ebuka, the Big Brother, thumbs up, the scenic designers, kudos, the content developers, three hearty cheers, Multichoice, you guys are the smartest capitalists around, well done! The finale was a bit overdone though, dragged out, over-delayed. Tiwa Savage (hey baby, watch that growing fat around your waist and thigh), Tuface (thanks TuBaba but next time tell Annie to twerk for us- what was that!). In all, the power of television was well advertised.

Now the hard knocks: I rate the theatre high but I consider the whole show a sham, a 419 manipulative effort by a corporate agency, long overdue for an ethical review and scrutiny, a bad influence on corporate ethics. The owners of the programme are just a bunch of insultive, manipulative and exploitative capitalists, feeding on public need for distraction and the negligence of the authorities.  Big Brother Naija 2017 is something that should never happen again in the shape we have seen. If Multichoice as a corporate investor wants to make a contribution to Nigeria, it must find ways of doing so in more meaningful forms.

Reality shows have become an established form on television, but whereas there are reality shows that promote talent, music, human capability and genius, enhanced relationships, and intellect, Multichoice, through its Big Brother Naija and Big Brother Africa franchises seems committed to the promotion of base values, chiefly adultery, prostitution, love of money, nudity and sex. What just ended as Big Brother Naija 2017 was nothing other than the corralling of some human beings into a zoo, pressured to behave like nothing but animals. The organizers made money devaluing other human beings. Multichoice and Payporte, the sponsors, turned alcohol and pornography into legitimate sport.

TBOSS and the other girls kissed and got groped by the boys on live television putting their upbringing to shame. TBOSS, who claimed she didn’t need the money even exposed her breasts on live television more than once. I have seen better breasts TBOSS. I am not too sure those private jet owners will be excited by your fluffy, South-looking, slightly bigger than mangoes breasts. If the same men see bigger assets, I mean, those interesting Ojiakor-like ones that look like papayas, pineapples and watermelons, they will not send private jets, they will deploy submarines and fighter jets!

And that ‘s why you got N500k in the end, way back behind Bisola with her hard facial features, and Efe whose victory is based on poverty logistics and appeal. But I have no doubt that TBOSS will end up doing better in the larger, outside market than the other finalists, because even those who did not vote for her, know in their hearts that she represents the message of the programme.

It is a wrong message and that is why Big Brother Naija drew more audience in Southern Nigeria than in the North. In the last week of the programme,, every town in Southern Nigeria was  seized by the #BBNaija fever. Prayers were offered in churches for Efe. One lady threatened to commit suicide if Efe did not win. Another one said she would not stop crying until Efe won.  Nollywood stars declared support for housemates. There was Team Bisola, Team Efe, EfeNation, TBOSSNation, TeamDebbieRise (small), TeamMarvis (even smaller). There were public processions even in universities.  We were told how to vote. Twitter was on fire. What I saw was nothing but sheer madness.

T-shirts were printed. One musician turned his personal car into a billboard. Nigeria became a mad house because of one reality television show. It looked like mass hypnotism at work.

But it should not be allowed to happen again. BBNaija should not be hosted and staged in South Africa as has been the case. Multichoice, Payporte and their partners made crazy money and got brand promotion off the back and sweat of Nigerians. Do the maths; we got peanuts in return. We were told BBNaija could not be staged in Nigeria due to electricity problems so the studio had to be in South Africa. And the Nigerian government looked the other way. Wawu! All the billions that the South Africans are running away with, after giving our boy a Kia SUV and some N25m, who is going to collect the Value Added Tax on that? Nigeria or South Africa? See the real Gobbe! All the staff who worked on the programme with extremely marginal exception were South Africans. Where were the Nigerians?  Abi, Lobatan oh.

The Nigerian government must assert itself. Nobody henceforth must brand anything involving primary production, Nigerian off Nigerian soil. We can’t get far by wearing made-in-Nigerian clothes on Mondays and Wednesdays, turning the country into an extension of Nollywood, but we can gain a lot by insisting that economic production and profit based on Nigerian talent and resource must have significant Nigerian content.

Congratulations Efe; the grace of God is forever sufficient, but sorry Nigeria.

Aliko Dangote at 60
Alhaji Aliko Dangote is 60 and understandably the entire country is busy paying tributes. He is the richest man in Africa, but more than that he is one of the most successful, forward-looking and resourceful entrepreneurs in the entire continent. He has investments and connections virtually everywhere.

I think a special remark should be made about his less known attribute - his humility and humanity.  Aliko Dangote, for all those who have related with him closely, is a very humble man. His life is not driven by money, but belief in hardwork and the impact that he is able to make. He is helpful, supportive and kind, always believing he can make a difference. I offer a special testimony.

Many years ago, before the Abuja job, I used to visit Aliko at home, sometimes on my own and sometimes with my family. On one occasion, he gave my first son money as he saw us off to the door. It was that kind of money that caused a fight between father and son. My son wanted to hold on to it, and there I was insisting the boy must hand over the money because it was enough to pay his and his sibling’s school fees. The innocent boy said the money was for him. How could it have been for him?  We resolved the fight, big fight, right there, with Aliko pretending not to notice.

On another occasion, Aliko asked if I had built a house and I told him I was building a house somewhere in Ajah. This was in 2006.  He said we should go there.  He jumped into my miserable Tokunbo car and followed me to the uncompleted building.  He walked round the building and asked me what I wanted. He ended up giving me enough cement to complete the house and the money to paint it. He told me I should contact him if I wanted to build any other house, but after that other house, I stopped bothering him, because it was obvious the bricklayers knew cement was free, and they were busy taking advantage.

I went to Abuja to work. The true story of that job is best told by Aliko Dangote, Mr Alex Ibru, Rotimi Amaechi, Femi Otedola and Ojogbane Adegbe. They supported me as best as they could without interference. It was Oronto Douglas who made the phone call. One day, every story will be told. Thank you Alhaji, for being a friend and a brother. Thank you. May you see many more seasons.

Choi! Harsh but bitter truth from Reuben Abati. Although I followed religiously the 2017 Big Brother Show, unlike the past ones but after the show I had a thought provoking discourse with a senior colleague of mine, a mother. Truth be told asides serving as an opium that helps us forget about life worries, the show has nothing positive to teach, no moral, no lesson, no clear agenda. But with the spate of Suicides in Nigeria, it helped many Nigerians forget their worries.
Hope the organizers will try more at enriching the content of the show to make it more appealing.
Reuben as usual hit the nail on the head.

I actually really enjoyed reading this! I am not living in Nigeria but still can't get away from Big brother Nigeria because it dominated every blog, and newsfeed. It bothered me as I'm some what allergic to reality shows like these and I remember one year when I spent a few months in Lagos my cousin and friend were glued to the programme in a disturbing way. I just didn't get it, how grown ups can be so distracted by something so poor like this show. But anyway I guess we all have our distractions. What this article highlighted is the money side which interests me and saddens me. If this sort of show will be made featuring 100% Nigerians who have turned it into tribe wars on Social media and further introduced blatant prostitution of woman and men into so many people's homes while distracting many Nigerians from using that time to watch and further discuss the show instead of productively doing something like spending quality time with their families or indeed using that time for thinking how to rid them and their family of debt then the show should at least be shot on Nigerian soil so that Nigerians are making some change from the show. This should be standard moving forward, it's just sad and pathetic that we loose out so so often, we make an impact in one area and go backwards in others. Thanks for highlighting these things in the article.

Thank you Abati. Nigerians are funny people, suffering and smiling. The killings of nigerians in south africa alone was enough to relocate that show back to Nigeria in protest.

Public display of nudity on live tv, adultery and others are against African values. The program was exploitation on nigerians in the best interest of south africans. They just use light as an excuse. i know several hotels that have steady power. auto gen, inverters, nepa, as back up. nigerians pls lets wise up.

I'm a die hard fan of Oga Reuben Abati, but for the first time I think your article is a bit extreme. Just a bit too hard on TBOSS and the Multichoice people. TBOSS's arrogance has cost her the ultimate prize. There is no need to further put her down, even to go as far as describing her sensitive body parts in demeaning language. That is unprofessional and quite unlike the respected Abati.

TBOSS's arrogance has already cost her the prize. There is no need to further put her down, even going as far as describing her private "assets" in demeaning language. That is unprofessional and quite unlike Abati. But for the consistent logic and enjoyable prose (trade mark features of Abati' works) of the piece I wouldn't have believed this is an Abati write up.

Mr.Reuben Abati, I had always thought you had sense. However this particular piece of yours, is riddled with numerous contradictions and profanities. You”ll blow hot- then blow cold- and then hot again. @some point, I began to wonder if really you were the one that wrote this, and pressed “SEND” for the public to read. WHO & WHAT ARE YOU to describe people the way you did? What all that body shaming for? Are you Mr.Handsome, Mr.Macho or Adonis?? I was kinda ‘feeling’ the very early/earlier parts of your article- with the clever observations, sound remarks, & all that showed you had quite some reasonable interest in the show, until you started deviating, digressing, and ultimately let loose like a loose cannon! You served in Govt.,& MUST have obviously helped your self to utter satisfaction,Mr.Abati; so kindly leave Nigerians to what gives us joy in the midst of the mess you & your ilk left as a nation. Thanks and good day.

This is the most sexist article I have ever read . Ruben why are you addressing Annie Tuface's wife as "baby" . Talking about T Boss as sweetheart and calling Tina Savage as "baby " somebody's wife . Telling her to watch her stomach and thighs . Ruben , that is called "fat shaming " if you don't know .It is very demeaning of you to talk about women the way you have done in this article. By the way why did you watch ? You did not have to . If the show was not intriguing and exciting to you . You could have spent your time writing a book or watching some other show on TV .Where you forced . I sense envy towards Multichoice and Payporte .

What a pity! I went through some write ups and ended up confirming my fears that Nigeria is packed full of half-literate fools who are intellectually hollow and criminally intelligent. They could not even understand the input of what Abati, a renowned scholar and intellectual, was writing about. BBN was a display of moral pervasiveness, and while Abati did not end in writing about this terrible aspect, he implored the organisers to stage a much more issues-based competition and should stage it in Nigeria. He also expected the government to be bothered that a revenue-generating event of this nature was allowed to be held outside the country because of electricity problem. What Dr Reuben Abati stated about BBN are the truth, and no sensible human being would resort to insults if he/she has any tissue of brain in him/her.

I read most of the comments before I actually read the article and I'm amazed at how shallow the thinking of most Nigerians are. Most of these comments bring to mind monkeys easily distracted and pacified from his larger and more pressing issues by the offer of a banana. Reuben Abati's wording may have been unduly harsh, but it doesn't make it any less true. Foreign multinationals have been literally raping and exploiting us for ages and they keep getting away with it because our law makers are stuffed to their eyeballs from bribes and we the populace are too stupid to complain because we don't want to rock the boat and we're being entertained. So what if multi choice and payport just made billions from a show branded Nigerian and we saw none of the dividends? At least we got entertained. So what if our brilliant and brightest minds are going to waste because no one is willing to give them platforms to excel? Who cares, they aren't entertaining or exciting. Yet every day we complain, but the minute someone points out how we are enabling our own exploitation, the barrage of insults begin.

Entertainment my foot, Reuben Abati is right of course but the youth of this gae can call it fun to their destruction, i am not surprised though,its really the end of the world with infidelity and nudity promoted, we will sure give accounts of our lives, words spoken ,things viewed and what we do with our body,total madness
