A Nigerian musician, Tekno, 26, has been arrested after video of him dancing with “half-naked” women in a truck in Lagos went viral.

In a video that was widely circulated on social media, the musician could be seen through a display truck dancing with the women in traffic.

The government has condemned the video which was recorded on Friday, describing it as “strange entertainment from the pit of hell.”

The footage, according to local media was a scene from Tekno’s unreleased video titled: ‘Agege’

Police on Tuesday said they indeed arrested Tekno whose real name is Augustine Kelechi.

Two other persons were also arrested in addition to Tekno, the police confirmed.

Police spokesperson for the federal state command Bala Elkana told local media that “The command has arrested Tekno and two others for conveying half-naked girls at the Lekki area of Lagos.”

The musician before his arrest apologized for the controversy the video caused saying it was a music video production.

Strong words

Nigeria’s Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture, Segun Runsewe said “The Lekki public show negates the beauty of the Nigerian culture and way of life.

It is unacceptable, ‘Jezebelistic’ and sins against the Nigerian culture, and must be condemned, ridiculed and rejected by Nigerians.”

He adds that “The Lekki debacle must be used as an example to officially clamp down on promoters and influencers of strange entertainment from the pit of hell.

Nigeria will never succumb to an imported cultural pastime or to blackmail tailored to destroy centuries-old and rich Nigerian culture.

“This dizzying madness cannot and will not be allowed to turn Nigeria into a destination for sex and illegal drugs tourism. Enough is enough, and for God’s sake, where is this coming from?”
