Popular Singer Tekno is probably regretting the stunt he pulled – showcasing half naked girls on a transparent truck driving through the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge. The singer was arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.
The "Duro" crooner whose real name is Augustine Kelechi received heavy backlash when clips of half naked girls dancing around him on the open truck surfaced online. Some social media users and celebrities condemned the act, saying he was constituting a nuisance to the public.
In the video, the girls are seen dressed provocatively, dancing in a seductive manner while Tekno sprayed cash on them. In response to the condemnation received, the Singer and his manager tendered apologies to the public for their bad judgment, last Sunday.

Explaining what transpired, Tekno said that, contrary to what many people thought, he did not set out to put up an open strip show. According to the Made Men Music (MMM) Artiste, he and his crew members were on their way to the location for a video shoot when the incident occurred. He further stated that the display was a scene in the upcoming video of his song titled Agege in which he featured fellow musician Zlatan Ibile.
