Some entertainers were not left out. Yemi Alade, and renowned film maker, Fidelis Duker, are among the Nigerian entertainers who have frowned at the Federal Government’s decision to probe the shooting of the ongoing Big Brother Naija, BBN, reality TV show, in South Africa.
Fidelis Duker said “What is your business where BBN is produced? It’s simply a strategic business decision. Don’t Nigerian Filmmakers shoot their movies in other countries?
When cadbury and the likes left Nigeria for neighboring Ghana….. Why didnt you force them back? Fix your Infrastructure and everything will fall in place.”
Yemi Alade on the other hand said the Federal Government shouldn’t probe the Big Brother
Naija and if they want to, they must tell the world why they mistakenly bombed an IDP camp.
