Tekno risks jail for publicly dancing with van strippers

Popular musician and Pana crooner,  Tekno, as well as four others risk being jailed for two years for publicly shooting a music video depicting semi-nude women dancing seductively in a display truck in traffic around the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge in Lagos.

Tekno was seen dancing with the semi-clad women on Friday and spraying them with money, hitting them in the buttocks, an act which many Nigerians described as obscene.

The act is said to be in contravention of Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which provides that any person who commits any act of gross indecency with another person in public commits an offence and liable to a conviction to three years imprisonment.

Section 134(a) further stipulates that an indecent act in a public place makes both parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years.

Attempts to get a reaction from Tekno proved abortive as his Manager, Olayinka Onibudo, neither responded to calls nor a text message on Saturday.

However, artiste, Raphael Omoniyi, popularly known as Zlatan Ibile, confirmed on Instagram that the video titled, ‘Agege’, featured himself and Tekno.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Signage and Advertising Agency has announced the suspension of the advertising agency whose display truck was used in shooting the video.
