#BBNaija2019: Ebuka Reveals How Social Media Is Harming Applicants
Big Brother Naija reality show host , Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, has warned potential housemates against campaigning on social media.
Auditions for the 2019 #BBNaija were held across eight cities of Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Ibadan, Enugu, Warri, Calabar and Benin on Friday and Saturday.
In a post on his Instagram page, Ebuka expressed his displeasure over applicants creating a buzz about auditioning on various social media platforms.
“Like, are your followers the ones auditioning? Or you think if auditions were done on social media that wouldn’t have been specifically announced? I don’t get it,” he wrote.
“In fact you are probably even doing yourself more harm. A major element of Big Brother is secrecy and surprise but you think announcing your intentions or social media is a bright idea – toh.”
Responding to Ebuka’s post, one of the former housemates in the last edition, Teddy A, noted that auditions for the show are meant to be discreet.
“Please don’t tell them, they will learn the hard way. Why they solicit for votes on social media like it’s a requirement. Our people don’t know how to follow simple instructions. BBN audition discreet pass secret cult initiation,” Teddy A wrote.
The last BBNaija edition which was held in South Africa was won by Miracle, with CeeC coming second and Tobi Bakre finishing third.
