Davido NDLEA frown against pop singer's music video

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA has frowned against pop star, Davido's new music video entitled Fans Mi for promoting drug trafficking.

According to reports, the agency has set up a panel to investigate the recently released music video, in which he displayed a substance suspected to be hard drugs.

In a report by The Punch, the Director of Public Affairs of the NDLEA, Mitchell Ofoyeju, expressed that the investigative panel might invite the BET award winner for questioning if the need arose.

'I am aware that a panel is working on it (the video). The panel was set up soon after the video was released few weeks ago. When our attention was drawn to it, we viewed it and we discovered that it was improper. There is no moral lesson in it and he was just advertising drug trafficking.

'In the video, he exchanged a brief case supposedly containing narcotics for dollars. He was displaying affluence in the video. If it (the plot) had climaxed in an arrest and possible detention, we would have congratulated him for partnering with us.

'But the way he portrayed drug trafficking in the video was a means to an end, which the end is a life of affluence which we disagree with. We are looking at the issue holistically. We believe that there should be a body that was supposed to censor videos before they go out.

'Those are the things we want to investigate and verify. Was the video submitted for approval? If it was submitted, why was it approved, with such content?' Ofoyeju revealed.

The controversial music video, which was shot by Sesan Ogunro and featured American rapper and member of the Maybach Group, Meek Mill, has gotten over 1million views since it's release.
