Federal Government vows to use Musician Tekno as scapegoat over ‘immoral’ music video

The Nigerian Government has expressed its determination to ensure singer Tekno is brought to justice for making of an ‘immoral’ music video that was a “threat to national security’’

The National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) said they would sanction the singer as a deterrent to others.

The Director-General, Olusegun Runsewe, had made this known while reacting to Tekno’s controversial music video in which naked strippers could be seen dancing in a transparent truck on the streets of Lagos.

He said:

“No single person is bigger than Nigeria. We are going to use him as a scapegoat to send a strong signal that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle,”

He said that it was wrong of Tenno to release the video despite ongoing investigations.

“NCAC is committed to exposing proponents of such kinds of offensive sights and videos in Nigeria,” Runsewe said. The DG said that security agencies would be directed to place Tekno on watch list, adding, “his conduct is a threat to national security”.

“Since the offensive Tekno scam video came to limelight, I have received hundreds of calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and abroad.

They are querying why such anomaly could be tolerated in Nigeria. Now that he has released the shameful video when investigation is still ongoing, we are going to inform security agencies to place him on their watch list.

Because his action is a threat to national security and bad influence on Nigerian youths. We warn that nudity is not part of our culture and should not be tolerated.

The Federal Government will henceforth fish out such clubs for nude dancers across the country for their promoters to face prosecution.”

Runsewe said that Section 134 (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State (2015) stipulates that an indecent act in a public place made parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years.

The Lagos State Signage and Advertising Agency has since suspended the advertising agency, which owned the display truck used in shooting the video.
