Popular Nigerian comedian and social commentator, Francis Agoda, better known as ‘I Go Dye’, on Tuesday said the proposed plan by the federal government to ban Big Brother Naija reality show cannot be successfully implemented.
According to him, banning any creative work with intellectual right across borders is an effort in futility.
The Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture, NCAC, Otunba Segun Runsewe, had lodged a complaint with the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, condemning live sex during the show.
Reacting, I Go Dye described the federal government’s move to ban the reality show as ‘a misplaced priority.’
He told newsmen in Lagos, “Government cannot successfully ban anything with intellectual right in its totality. If you ban it in Nigeria, are they going to stop all Nigerians abroad from watching it in their various countries?
