National Council for Arts and Culture has vowed to restore sanity to the entertainment industry which currently revels in the debasement of humanity and the pride of Nigerian women by making scapegoats of some persons.
This comes on the heels of the release of the music video of ‘Agege’ by a popular musician, Augustine Kelechi, aka Tekno, with scenes of four semi-nude women dancing in a moving van on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos.
Reacting to the video, the council expressed disappointment that despite ongoing investigations into the anomaly, Tekno went ahead to release the offensive video
A statement on Sunday by the Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Segun Runsewe, said Tekno would be made a scapegoat “to teach others a serious lesson.”
He said, “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,” he added
