Big Brother Naija, Nigerian Idol Will Provide Buhari Respite From Youths – Shehu Sani


Shehu Sani, a former senator has said President Muhammadu Buhari
will soon enjoy a brief respite from the attacks of young Nigerians on
social media due to the imminent return of two reality shows: Big
Brother Naija and Nigerian Idol.
Sani, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the eighth
National Assembly said this in a Twitter post on Thursday.
According to the politician, the upcoming Big Brother Naija and
Nigerian Idol shows will shield the president from criticisms on national

issues as the youths will be more focused on the entertainment-
themed shows.
“With #BBNaija2021 and #NigerianIdol coming soon, Baba @MBuhari
will have some temporary reprieve from Nigerian youths and their SM
missiles,” Sani tweeted.
Big Brother Naija is returning to the screens for its sixth edition with a
grand prize of N90 million to be won, MultiChoice Nigeria, the show
organisers announced on Wednesday.
Nigerian Idol, meanwhile, returns after a five-year lull. The franchise
has over the years produced some of the biggest Nigerian singers such
as Timi Dakolo, season one winner; Omawumi, season one first runner-
up; and gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo.
