The Nigerian police administration has sought the services of the public to provide information for an alleged party that went down in Abuja which was graced by embattled Nigerian singer D’banj.
The embattled singer is inching closer to prosecution over a viral video of him treating a crowd with good music at a party inside the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
In the video, none of the attendees were seen in nose masks, there was a high disregard for social distance as the venue was fully packed.
The police has issued out a statement, seeking information about the party to help bring D’banj to book.
“The attention of the Chairman FCT Covid-19 Enforcement Team and Commissioner of Police FCT, CP Bala Ciroma has been drawn to a video in circulation alleged to have been recorded at a party attended by Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, popularly known as D-Bang in Abuja.
“It is pertinent to state that the venue and time the video was recorded has not been verified.
“Members of the public, with privileged information, are called upon to furnish the FCT Covid-19 Enforcement Team with details of the said event.
“The Team wishes to state that it would not tolerate any violation of the Quarantine act and Covid-19 guidelines.”
Burna Boy has just won the BET Award for Best International Act. The Nigerian superstar edged out other nominees including Innoss’B (DR Congo), Sho Madjozi (South Africa), Stormzy (United Kingdom), Dave (United Kingdom), Ninho (France) and S.Pri Noir (France) to claim the highly coveted award.
Accepting his award, the African Giant thanked BET and used the opportunity to shine some light on Africa. “Thank you very much, BET,” he said. “Second time and I appreciate it. I will like to use this opportunity to say that sometime around 1835, there was admission to turn the nation of Africa into a dominated nation. Now is the time to return and go back to the royalty that we were because in order for black lives to matter, Africa must matter.”
His acceptance speech has been getting lots of positive reviews on social media.” I hope people think retrospectively and see the TRUTH in that statement and live by it,” one user wrote. “Burna Boy’s speech resonates with me. Naija STAND UP! From the Motherland to the Diaspora,” yet another Twitter user wrote.
This win is the Port Harcourt-born singer’s second consecutive BET: Best International Act win. Last year he was nominated alongside Mr Eazi, AKA, Dave, Giggs, Dosseh and Aya Nakaruma.
Veteran Nigerian rapper, Ruggedman has taken to social media to berate his fans over their inability to show support.
The rapper/activist said people are very quick to tag him on social media whenever there is a trending issue that needs to be amplified but the same set of people are slow to support him.
Ruggedman said whenever he shares videos of people that have suffered some form of injustice, he gets as much as 20k views.
He, however, noted that even after begging people to subscribe to his YouTube page he has barely managed to garner as much as a thousand followers.
The rapper’s post read in part ;
“I post your trouble, go out of my way to help you out of it and get 20k views. I ask you to click link in my bio and subscribe to my You Tube channel and struggle to get 1k subscribers,.
