Nigerian Govt To Use Tekno As Scapegoat Over Nudity Video

"No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as scapegoat to send a strong signal that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality." The government was reacting to the controversial music video by a popular musician with scenes of semi-nude women dancing in a moving van. The National Council for Arts and Culture expressed disappointment that despite ongoing investigations into the anomaly, Tekno went ahead to release the offensive video.
