Exactly sir. Unfortunately, 'investors' and brands will not choose this one for ambassador or promotion.

aylive02:

They can't. BBN made tens of billions and only gave a meagre 85million to the winner.

The bbn project was sponsored by multimillion dollar investors because they know many senseless youths will watch and celebrate their nonsense.

The government has done their part by initiating a program like this. The ball is now in the court of the masses to choose between talking, tweeting and sharing posts like this or continue trending bbn posts.

If investors see that we really want sanity, they'll invest in sanity. If they see that insanity is what we like then they'll continue sponsoring immorality.

Now you know why there's continuous poverty, technological backwardness and underdevelopment in the country.

Some fools will start comparing it to BBNaija thereby finding faults and blaming the organizers and investor for BBNaija massive prizes forgetting the success won’t be recorded if the citizens did not focus attention in it. People pay to vote laycon and other housemates but I dare you to check the venue of this competition and make s head count of how many youths you’ll see except the competitors and organizers.
I read someone blaming investors for choosing BBNAIJA over this kind of competition. Now tell me; if you own a company, will you rather sponsor this kind of competition knowing fully well that it’s main host is the government and they already approved millions in their various offices.
Before you spit. Don’t forget every individual is entitled to whatever show his/her company will sponsor cos I see some blaming Inoson car Ltd. don’t he owns his company and so he decides wherever his sponsorship goes. If I may ask; Were you all not in this country when the National Assembly bought some very expensive cars for her members and it was ordered from a foreign company abroad? I guess inoson car Ltd was on strike then right? Or his cars are not worthy.
Bunch of Hypocrites.
