The federal government has threatened to use Tekno as a scapegoat to send strong signs of intolerance to “nonsense and immorality”, as it has expressed disappointment that the head of Cartel Music has released the music video that has generated controversy while he tumbling .
Remember that Tekno suffered a violent reaction after being seen in a viral video shared on social networks that four half-naked women danced on a transparent van moving on the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge in Lagos.
In response to the release of the music video, the general director of the National Council of Art and Culture (NCAC), a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, according to Runsewe, said he was consulted by Nigerians at home and in the diaspora after a clip of half-naked women became viral. He also warned against shameful behavior that is not part of “our” culture.
“We commend the police for arresting Tekno for the shameful misconduct. The same person, who was granted bail on health grounds has gone ahead to release the controversial video. We are now warning him to desist from this shameful conduct, which is not part of our culture.
“No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as a scapegoat to send strong signals that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle.
“Since the offensive Tekno scam video came to the limelight, I have received hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and others in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and other parts of the world querying why such anomalies would 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 a bad influence on Nigerian youths.
“We are committed to exposing proponents of this kind of offensive sights and videos. We warn that nudity is not part of our culture and should not be tolerated. The Federal Government will henceforth fish out clubs for nude dancers across the country for their promoters to face prosecution.”
