Nigerian rapper, Michale Stephens aka Ruggedman has hinted on why the Nigerian youths appreciate reality TV show, Big Brother Nigeria than the government.

Ruggedman, who stated this in an interview with Saturday Beats, frowned at the fact that those behind the Lekki Tollgate massacre are yet to be known.

He said, “I think the only reason the Nigerian youths are so serious about BBN is because of the transparency. It is also because of the fact that they know their votes count. They also know that at the end of the day, the organisers fulfil their promises. That is why people are so serious about it. Can you say that about the Nigerian government? So that is why I said the Nigerian government has a lot to prove to the people, to show transparency, to show competence, to live up to expectations and also fulfil the promises they made. The Nigerian government needs to earn the trust of the people, especially the youths.

“Till today we are still trying to find out who shot at the protesters at the toll gate in 2020. A year after the incident, we still have not heard anything about it. There are so many things the government needs to come through with first before the youths will trust them”.

Commenting on his recent appearances in movies, the social advocate said, “My acting experience is good and exciting because I have always wanted to do it and I wanted to let them know that I can do it. Even Toyin Abraham was surprised at how well I played my role. Abraham said I did well, I was especially happy working with the likes of Mama Gee, Odunlade Adekola, Iyabo Ojo, Mercy Johnson and other talented actors.”
