BBTitans, AFRIMA, Shanty Town dominate social media trends. Fans cheered for their favorite housemate among the 24 contestants when the Big Brother Titans, a combined South African and Nigerian edition of the Big Brother series, debuted on January 15.
However, the reality TV program sparked debate among viewers who had opposing views on whether it should be canceled or delayed in light of the upcoming general elections.
“This show should have waited till after the elections…that is when it would be sweeter,” Arome Victor wrote on Twitter. Up to the elections, a review of the prior Big Brother would have been preferable.
@Emeka Innomaths, another Twitter user, wrote: “If the housemates are not permitted to leave and vote on February 25, 2023, I will personally sue Big Brother. Please free the young people from big brother’s cage for the time being since they will decide this election.
As Nigerian singers won the bulk of the accolades, the 8th All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA), which were held in Dakar, Senegal, started to trend on Monday.
Nigerian performers David Adeleke (Davido), Ayodeji Balogun (Wizkid), Damini Ogulu (Burna Boy), and Adekunle Gold made their country proud by winning several prizes in the Dakar Arena, which can accommodate 15,000 people.
When he recounted how a Nigerian performer tried to seduce him into homosexuality during his formative years as an actor, Nigerian actor Kunle Remi on Tuesday defied trends.
He disclosed this in an interview he gave to the Honest Bunch, an internet television program hosted by comedian Nedu.
“They would arrive at the scene in high-tech vehicles, and you would start to wonder whether they were higher than I was. They would claim to sell hair and work in brand-influencing roles, both of which are uncommon.
Young females entering the profession receive the incorrect message from this lifestyle since they already believe that you make your living via acting, despite the fact that you engage in other activities that they may never see or know about, according to Remi.
Don Jazzy, a well-known record label executive and producer from Nigeria, responded to the news by stating, “Now wey you don blow boss. Please identify the individual so that we can prevent him from abusing defenseless children in the future.
Nedu, the on-air personality, also contributed to upending the status quo when he recounted in a podcast how he witnessed two well-known female celebrities sleeping with a person he knows in an Abuja hotel.
Nedu, on the other hand, made no mention of any specific individuals, yet social media platforms erupted after certain users began criticizing certain politicians and well-known sketch creators.
Yes, I did say that. Two of your favorite influencers and celebrities were being observed by me at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja. I respect them enough not to divulge their names because they saw me and they anticipate that I will, he stated.
Wizkid, a well-known Nigerian performer, said on Wednesday that he will be joining David Adeleke (Davido), another well-known Nigerian performer, on a tour.
Fans of the pair, however, saw this differently, with some claiming that the proposal was made because the former required the latter to be popular.
Wizkid touring with Davido, according to social media influencer Daniel Regha, “makes absolutely no sense; He’s been snubbed! ng Davido for years and never responds to Wizkid FC’s trolling.
He plans a joint tour all of a sudden now that his star power has diminished!
ng? With Burna, why not? Davido must not consent to this. I’m sorry.
Mr. Jollof, a comedian and social media critic, criticized Wizkid for the tour and said that he was using Davido’s success.
Later, he expressed regret, claiming that his outburst was the result of a profound affection for the performer and that he had not intended it to be received the way it had been.
Following the Riyadh XI vs. PSG match in Saudi Arabia, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi dominated the sports landscape on Thursday.
The King Fahd International Stadium game, which PSG won 5-4, included goals from Ronaldo and Messi.

A Nigerian movie called Shanty Town, which is available on Netflix, started sparking discussions on Friday as fans praised the cast and producer for a “job well done.”
Actors like Nse Ikpe-Etim for her dynamic character, Mercy Eke for her exceptional debut, and Chidi Mokeme for a well-interpreted role received accolades.
As Nancy Isime’s nude scenes elicited a variety of responses, other performers including Ali Nuhu, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Shola Sobowale, Shaffy Bello, Ini Edo, and Peter Okoye received praise as well.
The actress then made it known that her stunt double was the owner of the body by posting on her Instagram page.
Netflix is now streaming Shanty Town.
P.S. : Quiet down, lads and females in lust. Unfortunately, those magnificent body parts belong to my beautiful body double, even though I know they thrill you. Not as succulent as mine.
“Enjoy our lovely creation, comprehend the lesson from each scene, and concentrate on the proper concentration. Thank you so much for the wonderful reviews that have been left so far; I’m thrilled that you all are enjoying Shanty Town. I’d want to congratulate the entire cast and crew,” she wrote.
Some of her supporters were convinced that the corpse was hers and that no amount of statement would change that reality because she was only performing her job and should own it, while others were skeptical and warned her for disclosing the secret.
