THE National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) says it will sanction a Nigerian Musician, Augustine Kelechi, popularly known as “Tekno” and use him as a scapegoat to teach others a serious lesson.
The Director-General, Mr Olusegun Runsewe, made this assertion while reacting to the controversial music video in which Techno paraded nude dancers.
“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,” Runsewe said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a four-minute video showing half-naked women dancing in a transparent outdoor display truck in Lagos has been causing an uproar on social media since Aug. 2.
The truck showed the women dancing on a stripper pole, wearing only brassieres and underpants.
It was seen around the Toll Gate Plaza on Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos.
Tekno, in the video, was seen throwing money perceived to be dollars at the young nude women.
Runsewe, in a statement by his media aide, Mr Frank Meke, described the offensive video as disgusting with scenes of four nude women dancing in a moving van on Lekki-Epe Expressway.
The director-general expressed disappointment that in spite of the ongoing investigations into the anomalies, Tekno still went ahead to release the offensive video to the public.
“NCAC is committed to exposing proponents of such kinds of offensive sights and videos in Nigeria,” Runsewe said.
