Popular Nigerian singer Kelechi Augustine popularly known by many as Tekno, appears to have gotten himself into more trouble following the recent reaction of the NCAC, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, to his viral music video for latest single, Agege, which contains several scenes depicting half-clad ladies.
Recall that the singer had earlier been invited for questioning by the Lagos police in connection to his involvement with a controversial transparent truck that was spotted around Lekki-Epe expressway, conveying half-clad ladies.
Tekno in a statement shared on his page apologized for the misconduct 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 released on Agust 8, 2019, contained several shots of the controversial scenes that had previously surfaced online. In reaction to the development, the director-general of the NCAC, Olusegun Runsewe, in a statement by his media aide, Frank Meke, made it known that the council would make a scapegoat of the musician, Vanguard reports. 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.
