Nigerians have expressed diverse reactions as crowds gather to audition for the fourth season of Big Brother Naija auditions across the country on Friday, blocking other activities.
It was gathered that thousands of prospective housemates arrived at the venues as early as 2 am to get auditioned in time, with some obstructing free flow of traffic.
Nigerians have in light of this, started blaming the ASUU strike, joblessness and the government for the turnout of youths at the audition centers.
In Abuja, where the auditions took place at Wuse, the crowd was quite disorganized as people struggled to enter the venue.
Meanwhile, in Lagos State, the audition crowd blocked a large portion of Allen, Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja preventing residents from going about their normal activities.
Reacting to the crowd, some Nigerians took to Twitter to express their amazement at the large turnout. They, however, expressed displeasure at the disruption of traffic and their usual activities.
@Yslaplace said, “Traffic and people are fainting already in Lagos. Abuja looks like a revival service: a whole dual lane road blocked.”
@obidiananthony tweeted, “The crowd for bbnaija is crazy. Abuja multichoice office audition venue as at 7 am on the first day of audition.”
@Ebonyslim tweeted, “So these are the people that caused that massive traffic at Adeniyi Jones today and made my son get to school by 8:40 am.”
@Ololadeolusola said, “How in the world will @DStvNg be having #BigBrotherNaijaAuditions on Aromire Avenue, Ikeja. Why?
“There are thousands of people wanting to audition and the whole Adeniyi Jones and environs is on lockdown! Trying the get my son to school since 6.45am. Too unfair.”
