EPISODE 12 Audio Export.Still001
There is nothing sweeter than hearing your 7-year old son use some of your attributes as criteria for the selection of a spouse. This was the case of Morewa’s mother, who broke down in tears on the 12th episode of the Etisalat Sponsored Children’s reality show, ‘Kids Say The Darndest Things‘ which aired yesterday at 7pm on AIT.

Morewa was asked by the host of the show, Tony Okungbowa the qualities he will like his wife to have. The cute child replied, “She has to be beautiful like my mother“. His over whelmed mother couldn’t hold back her tears on hearing such a sweet comment from her son. 11-year old Gbolahan also made his mum cry, as she was proud of her son’s level of intelligence and illustration of a traffic incident that happened during the week.

    I’ve watched this show a few times and it isn’t remotely funny. The the host doesn’t have a natural rapport with kids & then in most cases, naija kids aren’t raised to converse freely with adults so at times its pretty awkward to watch.
    And more importantly pls stop asking the kids where they attend school! Such info shouldn’t be aired in gbomo gbomo country or in fact anywhere period.

      Felt same way. It an uninspired show. I like Tony, but he wasn’t just the right host. And they seem focused on the posh kids.

    @becca you are so right, our Nigerian kids are not so free around adults except you are part of their daily lives. They can say surprisingly brilliant stuff when one is not paying attention tho

    I love the show though and I think that so far, some of the kids have been freely expressing themselves. I just hope for longevity…that’s all.

    Becca nailed it quite frankly this show shld be cancelled. If it aint broke don’t fix it. I love the fact that there are healthy boundaries btw kids and adults in nija unlike here in the US. Let’s not try to be what we are not in the process of voraciously consumung everything American. How is it working for them in America? Is this the the Tony that was in Ellen de generes?

    The show is very funny and I’ve become hooked on watching it on Sunday every 7pm, the kids are cute and they do say the cutest things, I think Tony tries a lot with some of the shy kids he works with. Kudos. I’m sure as the show progresses he’ll only get better and better, each episode is more interesting than the last.
