Pop singer, Tekno, has explained his involvement in the truck which was seen conveying strippers on Lagos road.
The truck was stuck in the traffic late Friday around the Lekki/Ikoyi tollgate in Lagos with semi-nude ladies dancing seductively.
Videos of the incident showing five oiled girls in
lingerie dancing around a pole with Tekno throwing foreign currency at them and
smacking their butts immediately went viral on social media.
The 26-year-old said in a post on Instagram on Sunday that the incident was a video shoot not an advert for a strip club.
“First of all there was no reason for us to be dancing in
a Truck around Lekki. There was no music, no ventilation in the truck. We were shooting
a music video, and we had shortage of vehicles to convey people to the next
location, because some of the cars broke down in between the shoot, which we
divided ourselves into various vehicle because we had been shooting all day and
having fun which we then moved to the next location,” he said.
The singer added: “This was no form of advert for a
strip club or dancing naked on the streets for any type of reason.”
“We sincerely apologise if some people saw this or felt
offended by the scenery they saw. It was never intent,” Tekno said.
The Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency has
already suspended the licence of the firm that reportedly owns the van for
promoting indecent acts.
