Nigerian singer, Tekno has issues a statement apologizing to the public after he seen dancing with some semi-nude women inside a truck at the Lekki Toll Gate Plaza along the Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos, on Friday night.
Tekno who took to his Instagram page gave a load down of what really happened
“Hi everyone, please i would like to clear the air about the video going round of girls dancing around Lekki or Victoria Island.
“First of, 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 in between the shoot, which we divided ourselves into various vehicles because we had been shooting all day and having fun which we then move to the next location.
“However, this was at about 12am at midnight already. This was no advert for a strip club or dancing naked for on the streets for any type of reason.
“In addition, we respect the decency in Lagos and in as much as we are entertainers, we are always mindful of what we have and not jeopardise it. And that’s why we enjoy shooting our videos in Lagos. As we all know it’s a centre of excellence and centre of entertainment.
“We sincerely apologize if some people saw this and felt offended by the scenery they saw. It was never an intent. My people i love you all, stay blessed.”

The apology came after The Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency strongly condemned the act, even as it threatened to take action against the owner of the truck.
Earlier, in a statement by its Chief Executive Officer, Bolaji Sanusi, the agency said no truck in Lagos had been given a licence to do such.
