TV Slavery! Addiction to Telemundo, Zee World Channel Rising in Nigeria

You may have heard of the top soap channels – Telemundo and Zee World – which dish out popular Indian and Mexican drama series. Those who watch these channels say they have marvelous romance-based stories that keep you glued to the TV set till the end of each episode. We hear some men have abandoned their television set in the parlor to avoid any clash with their wives who are Telemundo-addicts while other men who are in love with these channels watch them together with other family members. Some other families have two television sets, one for telemundo and Zee World group and the other for those who watch various other programmes.

One man wrote on Facebook that those who do not watch Telemundo and Zee World do not know what God has done for them. He is insinuating that the addiction has gotten to the extent that breaking off is a problem even when you wish to do so. Some other people may be of the opinion that those who do not watch these channels do not know what they are missing.

So to which group do you belong, those who see the channels as enslaving Nigerians or does who think you are missing a lot by not watching them?

    I don’t watch it…but if it’s interesting to those who watch it then I don’t see how it’s “slavery “. The same way they’re addicted to telemundo, so are men addicted to football.

    1. Those two Station’s are the worst thing that can ever happen to any individual. How can someone wake up in the morning and start watching it. That station is always airing a movie whenever you tune to it. And if it’s not they will have to review the previous one’s they have done for days. That station will make you forget everything you are Doing in your house by rather make you stay glued to your television. Group 9 quiz number 24

  25. I cannot be caged by the demonic spirit that the Indians and Mexicans have projected into the world to turn people’s minds from focusing on what will develop them into better people.watching these movies will not put food on your table,but will rub you of your precious time to think straight and achieve better things in life.
