Comedian Seyi Law and a past winner of the Big Brother Africa reality TV show, Uti Nwachukwu, have condemned a pastor for cursing sponsors of the Big Brother Nigeria show. It emerged on Tuesday that the pastor had rained curses on Payporte, Dufil and other sponsors of the show. He had tweeted the curse to express his displeasure for the immorality in the Big Brother house.
“I curse with anger anyone busy sponsoring Big Brother Nigeria. If they attempt to sponsor it next year, may their resources dry up,” he tweeted.
Seyi Law and Uti responded to the pastor on Instagram and Twitter.
“I am not in support of the immoral acts in Big Brother Naija, but as a Christian when the devil brings darkness, you shine your light. If you don’t like what they protray, change your channel.
“This type of prayer should be said in your closet, not in public, Mr. Pastor.
“You are praying that their resources should run dry. Pastor, do you know how many people that are on the employment list of Payporte and Dufil, the makers of Indomie?
“Is Big Brother promoting immorality? Absolutely. Is it good? No. Is Big Brother entertaining? Yes. Does that justify the immorality? No. What are the organisers doing about it? This, as far as I know, the organisers cancelled the shower hours to reduce the level of obscenity and DStv gave us the choice to watch or not. depending on you. What does this mean? It means watching is by CHOICE and not FORCE. Does that mean we can’t voice out our opinions about the decadence of the morality in house? Of course, we can.
“Is it right to demand or rain curses for cancellation because of your own beliefs? No. If you don’t like it, stop watching, others watching are not using your eyes. Don’t be a moral bigot at the detriment of others entertainment. This is the reason Christ did not force anybody to be a Christian. He is subtle in convincing you,” Seyi Law said.
Uti accused the pastor of hypocrisy in his tweet: “Are you a virgin? Do you drink? Do you smoke? Do you get angry ? What’s your point? Your hypocrisy will only limit you. Change.”
The Big Brother Naija show has been criticised by many for its indecency. Just in the recent editions, fan favourite, Bisola was spotted in an oral sex session with Thin Tall Tony, TTT, who is alleged to be married with kids.
