FORMER BIG BROTHER WINNER, KATUNG REVEALS WHY THE SHOW WAS CREATED
Big Brother Naija first winner, Katung
Aduwak , has revealed the show was
originally designed by its creators to
attract controversies and create agenda
for social discussions.
According to him, for every time that the
reality TV show stirred controversy in
the public space, it actually went in line
with the script of its organizers.
He stated this during the weekend
during chatting in Lagos.
Aduwak noted that from his experiences
while in the house in 2006, the best way
to emerge winner of the star prize
pegged on Big Brother Naija was to
always remember that the reality show
was a game, be one’s self at all times
and be strategic in playing the game.
He said: “I’ve not really been able to
watch it because of my busy schedule
but based on what I’ve heard, it has
sparked a lot of controversy and that is
what the organisers want, so I would
call it a success.
“When I was in the house, I knew it was
a game and the best way to win is by
being yourself and being strategic.
“While in the house, I learnt that the
human mind is very resourceful and
creative. In the larger world, we are
spoilt for choice because we have a lot
of things at our disposal but when
you’re locked up, you would be forced
to make do with the resources available
to you. I think we can survive with a lot
less than we think.”
