Foremost activist and Nigerian musician, Charley Boy Oputa has reacted to comments by the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed stating that a ban on shooting of music video abroad will soon be put in place.
He lambasted the Federal Government, questioning the rational behind the new call for Nigerian artistes to be banned from shooting videos abroad.
In an article titled “Sleeping Warriors In A Dying Nation,” Charley Boy aired his frustration.
He wrote:”The MC of goofs, gaffs and a lotta mumbo-jumbo, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in one of his numerous jokes, probably scripted this time by Tony Okoroji, announced that the Federal Government is set to stop production of Nigerian movies and music videos abroad.
“Many see him as a clueless and overly excited Minister, who makes a lot of funny declarations without due consultations. You won’t be wrong if you call him irrational, or if you like, a bigmouth; you may also want to consider him a fabulist, or if you are trying to be modest like me, just call him the King of spoofs. Haha…a joke called minister.”
