On the morning of the 1st day of February 2019, Nigerians woke up to an incredible amount of youths storming the 8 audition centers for this year’s edition of Big Brother Naija.
Nigerians in light of this, started blaming the ASUU strike, joblessness and the government for the turnout of youths at the audition centers.
However, a Twitter user, @prime_tobbi has shared a new perspective to the BBNaija auditions as he claims that the individuals who will eventually make it into the house will not be picked from the thousands who are laboring at the auditions.
Read his thread below:
