Bisola Aiyeola, the first runner-up of Big Brother Naija, says there was nothing bad about the reality show.
While the Big Brother Naija show was being aired, many had criticised its lack of positive influence on the viewers.
Some public figures even called on the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to stop the show from airing because it was promoting immorality and vices.
Reacting to the criticisms during a radio interview on SoundCity FM, Bisola said most of the critics were hypocrites.
“A lot of people are hypocrites. Even if Big Brother Naija was not on the air, It wouldn’t change the fact that people still do terrible things in the world,” she said.
“It would not change anything.”
The actress said she learnt a lot from the reality show and that it made her stronger.
“Big Brother taught me a lot. It made me a stronger person,” she said. “People who didn’t even watch the show had their own perception of it. You cannot please everybody because even religious shows get criticised.”
She added: “You can’t satisfy everybody. For me, it has had a very great impact on my life and career. I do not see it as a bad platform or show not just because I was a participant and even before I got on the show.”
Bisola also said there’s no animosity between herself and fellow contestant ThinTallTony whom she found out was married after the show ended.
“There’s no bad blood,” she said, adding that, “I wouldn’t have played so much with him if I knew he was married”.
