2019 #BBNaija: Lady Almost Died! The Auditions kicked off This morning, Friday 1 and Nigerians woke up to an amazing number of youths storming the 8 #BBNaija audition centres at different locations across the country.
Majority of Nigerians said the turn-out of youths was high at the designated centre of the Audition due to the ASUU strike and unemployment.
According to a Twitter user who maintained that the government of Nigeria has failed its people and most youths now see this avenue as a path out of poverty.
Some persons were seen jumping metallic barrier to access the Audition Arena. Moreover, Just like millions of other Nigerian youths today, had decided to audition at one of the centres across the nation. A lady identified as Ujunwa almost lost her life today. As the audition was in progress, there was a stampede and she fell to the ground while other contestants matched on her without remorse. She and her friend had to be rescued by the security operatives at the location.

Nigerians reacts on Twitter;
‘the crowd at the
#BBnaija auditions is proof of our flawed value system and our failed government. I am not against anyone going to audition for it, but when this is what majority of our youth see as a way to escape poverty, then we have a serious problem’.
