Popular singer, Tekno has said he loves to shoot his videos in Lagos and he did not mean to disappoint anyone with the viral clip of him and strippers dancing in public.
A snipped of the clip, which is all over the internet now, captured Tekno dancing with four strippers, spraying them cash and spanking their backsides.
The act according to the Lagos State Signage and Advertising Agency, LASSAA, contravenes Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The section reads, “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.”
“an indecent act in a public place makes both parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years”.
However, Alhaji Tekno has jumped on his Instagram to apologize to everybody who felt offended by the video.
He said he was shooting a music video and when a few cars broke down, he had to move some people into the truck to the next location.
