BBA: So Beverly Osu Had Sex for Nothing? I Dey Laugh O! By Ameh Comrade Godwin
Did I hear someone say duoooor? I almost buried my head under my pillow when Nigerian representatives at the just concluded Big Brother Africa tagged ‘The Chase’, Melvin and controversial Beverly Osu were evicted from the competition at the eleventh hour and the denied the money and fame they fought to grab. Tongue out!
For Melvin, he’s fought a good fight. Thank you for being a worthy ambassador in far away South Africa. I’m proud of you.
Honestly, I am not a fan of that particular reality (immorality?) show; in fact, since its conception, I have never liked it. I have my extreme reservation about the show. The immoral activities in The House during the competition made me to write an article entitled BBA: Platform for free public fornication a few months back.
Many people had faulted my conclusion on the competition, but I was not moved because truth, they say is always bitter. Like me or hate me, I will always stand for the truth.
In the said article, I agreed that the fact that, the ‘Show of Shame’ no doubt, preaches unity amongst African countries, as it unites people from different countries and culture and promotes the exchange of ideas. I also cleared that it promotes inter-personal relationship amongst the contestants.
However, some activities in the house made me to wonder on what the reality show really stands for.
From a more critical perspective, the BBA has really gotten into the heads of our youth. All the juicy details of what happens in the house especially in the wee hours were never missed by many young boys and girls. They can correctly tell you whose boobs were grabbed, which pair stole some kissing moments, as well as the various colours of underwears displayed in the last 24 hours and who had the “biggest” JT bulge in the house.
Before the winner emerged Sunday night, my friends on Blackberry and other social network sites had bombarded me with Broadcasts and messages campaigning for Beverly Osu to go for the money. Their reason? She was real, she didn’t pretend like others. Did I hear them say REAL? So savouring the Turgid Pole of a stranger on a satellite television is being real? No, I disagree.
I learnt that despite all the criticisms, Beverly has been getting from Nigerians following her sexual escapades with house mate, Angelo, her mum is super proud of her daughter and was planning a big welcome party for her; what a dance of shame!
The question is, will the heroic party for her ‘proud daughter’ still hold since Namibian Dillish Matthews has gone with the $300, 000 star prize? Mama Beverly needs to answer this one.
When I later went back to watch the 3 minutes 17 seconds video footage of her live ‘sex’ with Angelo in the bathtub, I was moved to tears.
So this Angelo guy come ‘bang’ our lady for free? God dey sha!
Does that mean that Nigerians are foremost in such acts? I mean we have scored high in sex and sex related issues. Yet back at home, we pretend a lot about such acts. On this global TV, we didn’t fail to show the world the stuff we are made of in matters of ‘bedmatics’ and the tricks surrounding it.
So she couldn’t keep her pants on for the sake of dignity? She has portrayed the image of Nigerian girls as being wayward. What if her kids and their friends in the future surf the Internet and find these pictures and video of hers? There is no end to the cries, criticisms and concerns trailing her recent faux pas. “Allowing a guy to shag you openly; this is annoying. What a shame, she was even the one on top. What desperation!,” a colleague of mine fumed when the issue of the sex tape was mentioned in the office. There is no doubt about it: It was a big fuck-up!
It is good to know that Nigeria had won in three consecutive episodes from- Chuwang Pam Kelvin in 2009, to Uti Nwachuckwu in 2010 and to ‘breastfull’ Karen Igho in 2011. However, I see those three straight wins in two different perspectives. First, it is good to know that we have the largest market and also that we didn’t fail our flag bearers. By our incredible votes, we did boost their winning chances.
This time around, it was a case of much pain, no game for our own Beverly.
I think the Big Brother noise is over; I can now subscribe my DSTV for my little boy, Michael to enjoy his Cartoon Network.
Like my colleague, Chichi would say, “BBA is gradually becoming a continental show of shame. It is high time we pulled the plug on this modern day show of sleaze masked as home entertainment.”
As I end this article with anger burning in my heart like the Babylonian furnace, I leave you with the word from the Good Book-the bible, “Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
But don’t forget, the Bigger Brother up there is watching.
I still ask, so Beverly had sex for free? I dey laugh (apology to OBJ).
