We will make Tekno scapegoat – FG says

The Federal Government has vowed to make popular singer, Augustine Kelechi, popularly known as Tekno, scapegoat in order to bring saneness into the social lives of Nigerians.

This is because of the controversial music video tekno made with four semi-nude women swaying in a moving truck on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos.

The artiste, in the four-minute video, was also seen throwing cash suspected to be dollars at the young women.

The government displayed disappointment that despite ongoing investigations into the irregularity, Tekno went ahead to release the rude video.

In the official music video for the song, ‘Agege,’ which was published on Thursday, Tekno was seen in the moving van playing to the camera with the half-clad women dancing seductively.

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, stated:

Tekno would be made a scapegoat “to teach others a serious lesson.”

The NCAC is committed to exposing proponents of such kind of offensive sights and videos in Nigeria, while security agencies will be briefed to place Tekno on their watch list, “because his conduct is a threat to national security.”

I got hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians, both at home and in the Diaspora, who queried why such immorality would be allowed in the country.

“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.
