The Federal government has described the recent display of naked women in a transparent truck by singer, Tekno, as unacceptable, ‘Jezebelistic’ and sins against the Nigerian culture.
A statement released by the Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Segun Runsewe, says the act by the singer stands condemned and will be thoroughly investigated by the government.
According to Runsewe, this incident must be used to clamp down on promoters and influencers of strange entertainment from the ‘pit of hell.’
The statement in part reads
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.
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?”.
