NCAC to sanction Tekno over raunchy music video


Famous Nigerian artist, Kelechi Augustine popularly known as Tekno, might be in more trouble as the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) has vowed to sanction him over explicit scenes in his music video, Agege.

The Lagos police had earlier invited the singer for questioning over his involvement with a controversial transparent truck that was spotted around Lekki-Epe expressway, conveying half-clad ladies

Tekno apologized for the misconduct in a statement shared on his page and submitted that they were only using the truck to convey the ladies to the next location for a music video shoot.

However, the words in his statement did not tally with his actions, as the music video released for the said song on August 8, 2019, contained several shots of the controversial scenes that had previously surfaced online.

The NCAC Director General Olusegun Runsewe, expressed disappointment that in spite of the ongoing investigations into the controversial issue, Tekno still went on to release the offensive music video to the public

Runsewe, in a statement by his media aide, Frank Meke, announced that the council would make a scapegoat of the musician.

Runsewe stated that security agencies would add the singer’s name to their watch list as he pose a threat to national security and morals of Nigerian youths

Runsewe said, “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.”

Runsewe said, “Since the offensive Tekno scam video came to limelight, I have received hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and others in United Kingdom, U.S., Canada and other parts of the world.

“They are querying why such anomaly could be tolerated in Nigeria. Now that he has released the shameful video, when investigation is still ongoing, we are going to inform security agencies to place him on their watch list. “Because, his action is a threat to national security and bad influence on Nigerian youths.”
