FG orders investigation into why Big Brother Naija is being shot in South Africa | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Federal government has ordered the National Broadcasting Corporation, NBC to investigate why the Big Brother Nigeria show is being shot in South Africa.

In a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed directed the NBC to determine whether Multi-Choice, by shooting the show in South Africa, has breached the Nigerian Broadcasting Code in any way.

He said the commission should also investigate the issue of possible deceit, since the viewing public was never told that the event would be staged outside Nigeria.

“As a country of laws, only the outcome of the investigation will determine our next line of action,’’ he said.

The minister said concerned Nigerians had bombarded his office with calls to complain about what they regard as an anomaly of shooting outside the country a show meant for Nigerians. He urged them to remain calm while the NBC investigates the issue and submits its findings.

Nigerians have also kicked against the shooting of the TV reality series in South Africa.
