Charly Boy knocks Nigerian youths over Big Brother Naija

Musician Charly Boy

Musician and activist Charly Boy has knocked Nigerian youths who judiciously follow the Big Brother Naija show instead of paying attention to the happenings in the country.

On Monday, the 70-year-old tweeted that when it comes to voting for their favourite Big Brother Naija housemates, youths are more excited to cast votes as opposed to being a part of national elections.

The entertainer added that despite the disturbing trend, Nigerians will still conveniently go to bed at night and hope to wake up to a country that they never created.

He wrote: “Total number of votes cast Big Brother Nigeria 2019 = 170 million. — Total number of votes cast General election 2019 = 27 million. Imagine in all of these is that we still go to bed, have a good sleep and wake up with the hope to meet a Nigeria we didn’t create. Mumu Nigerians!”

Charley Boy had in a Facebook post in February pledged his total support for the Lagos State Government order proscribing the use of commercial motorcycles (okada) and tricycles (keke) in some parts of the state.
