Nigerian music artist manager, Ubi Franklin, has criticized National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC)’s move to make Tekno a scape goat over the release of his music video.
Recall that last week, Tekno released the controversial video of his single ‘Agege’ featuring rapper, Zlatan Ibile, with semi-nude women dancing in a transparent truck on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos.
The NCAC director, Olusegun Runsewe in a statement however said: “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.”
Reacting in a post on his Instagram on Monday, Ubi asked how expressing one’s craft through a music video was a threat to national security.
He wrote “You see this country Nigeria? Smh I don tire. How can expressing your craft through a music video be a Threat to National Security?. A 28 year old with no Gun? Very few making Nigeria/Nigerians proud ?” he wrote.
