  • …As social media users accuse the Channel of” cultural & religious insensitivity.”
  • The 7th Season of the hit TV series is set to debut on the 1st Day of Ramadan by 8 pm
  • … Channel back down to repeat the show by 9–10 pm after airing 8-9

The popular TV station in northern Nigeria, AREWA 24, has been accused of being ‘a US agent’ for deciding to air its TV show Kwana Casa’in on the first day of Ramadan. The show has so far proven to be popular, with many viewers. 

However, the decision to air the new season on the first day of Ramadan when Night prayers (Taraweeh are conducted) has attracted a lot of negative comments from the TV station. People believe it is not a coincidence. Remember, Ramadan is starting on 3rd April.

One BabaMangaJr on Twitter said; 

 “The fact that it’s our own people; people that we share commonality with are the ones contributing towards the deteriorating of our morality is indeed belligerent.”

 For Danjauro_ on Twitter, he accused the station of being a US agent, saying; 

 “The controversial US state department funded channel “Arewa 24″ whose broadcast targets predominant Muslim population in 9ja is set to air new Season in Ramadan Critics say this piles to allegations of cultural & religious insensitivity the station has exhibited since inception”

Tierres begged to disagree, saying there is nothing wrong with what the TV station is doing.

 “Looooooooooool the people complaining about this have problems. Go and do your sallah, who’s stopping you?”

This and many other comments have forced the Channel to make an adjustment. It has now promised to repeat the show by 9–10 pm after airing it the first time between 8-9 to give worshippers the chance to watch the hit show.

The hit show, which translates to ’90 days’ is a political drama that has been popular with the viewers.
