However, eyebrows have been raised as regards their contents and one of such is the Big Brother Africa, which unarguably is Africa's biggest.

The programme has been criticised since its inception some years ago. However, the show has made some of its contestants stars, who now earn big in the entertainment industry. Winner of the present edition is expected to walk away with $300,000.

What has made the show to be heavily criticised is the n8dity and this has made many to ask what moral lesson the BBA teaches the African youths, which the African culture frowns at.
