Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host of Big Brother Naija, has spoken out on why some aspects of the reality TV show were edited and his feelings towards disqualified housemate Erica Nlewedim.
According to Ebuka, according to National Broadcasting Company regulations, some sequences must be suppressed.
During an interview with BeatFM, the TV host made this statement in response to assertions made by fans that BBNaija only shows viewers what the organization wants them to see.
He also shot down rumors that he harbored a grudge against Erica.
He said, “I like Erica; I really like Erica, which is also funny because people thought that I hated her. She gave us good content; she and Kiddwaya.
“First things first, we live in a country that has regulations. We all know about the NBC; there are certain things we can never show whether we like it or not. I always say that the show would be a different show if it was not a Nigerian show or if it was not in Nigeria because of the kind of things that we cannot show. Those things are not in our call; it is just legal issues.
“Secondly, this talk about what we showed about Kiddwaya and Erica; we actually did not show anything about them if anybody remembers. Nothing was shown about them. We did not show anything. In fact, it was even Ka3na and Praise that people saw under the sheets.

“A lot of these things happened under the sheets; so, we do not know what is happening. We are not going to send a ninja to remove the sheet so that we can get a good shot.
“People say we showed some things that made Erica and Kiddwaya look bad and I ask how? How did we make them look bad? Everything that has been revealed on the reunion show is actually on air. It just so happened that people decided to assume what they assumed.”
