The Director-General, Olusegun Runsewe of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) has said it will sanction a Nigerian Musician, Augustine Kelechi, popularly known as “Tekno”, and use him as a scapegoat to teach others a lesson.
The DG made this assertion in his reaction 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,” Mr Runsewe said.
It was widely reported that a four-minute video showing semi-nude women dancing in a moving transparent outdoor display truck in Lagos has been causing an uproar on social media since August 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.
Mr Runsewe, in a statement by his media aide, Frank Meke, described the offensive video as disgusting with scenes of four nude women dancing in a moving van on Lekki-Epe Expressway.
