"You Were Advertising Drug Trafficking", NDLEA To Davido. by ZAMZINE(m): 6:32am On Jul 12, 2015
Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency has set up a panel to investigate a music video released by Nigerian artiste, Davido, in which he displayed a substance suspected to be hard drugs.

The video of his track entitled, ‘Fans mi’, in which he featured an American rapper and member of the Maybach Group, Meek Mill, showed Davido with a briefcase filled with dollars and another bag filled with parcels of a substance suspected to be hard drugs.

The Director of Public Affairs of the NDLEA, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, told SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday that the investigative panel might invite the hip-hop artiste for questioning if the need arose.

He said, “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.”

Ofoyeju said the anti-drug agency would conduct a full-scale investigation into the making of the video and to confirm whether it was censored before its release.

The NDLEA spokesperson further said, “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?”

NDLEA had in June 2013 said controversial Nigerian actress, Tonto Dikeh, risked a minimum of 15 years in jail for encouraging the consumption of hemp.

Dikeh had on June 28, 2013, posted photographs of a wrap of hemp and grains of the weed formed into the letters, ‘Happy birthday POKO.’

She also posted a photograph of herself and added the inscription, ‘Mi smoke ganja mi smoke weed while my hatez smoke ma gossip.’

Her picture is a close-up of her face that seemed to depict her in a high state.

As a result, the agency said it was keeping tabs on more celebrities in Nollywood and the music industry for drug trafficking, abuse and links with drug cartels.

This stupid NDLEA thieves. That's how they arrested a friend of mine for having tramadol in his pharmacy. Since when has having tramadol in your pharmacy become a crime in nigeria?

They just came in his shop, ransacked it, arrested him, locked him up and kept on torturing him asking him to pay them #250k. This boy just went into pharmacy business and is trying to make a little living for himself

They seized his phones and didn't allow anyone to visit him. When he could not take the beating any longer he decided to pay. They dressed him up, cleaned up his wounds and drove him to the bank to collect the cash...no receipt no nothing.

These guys are thieves... All of them

I have always told people that there is freedom of speech everywhere in the world - iran, iraq, saudi, russia china, north korea, etc and of course nigeria. However, nobody can guaranty anyone freedom after speech not even in the u.s, u.k, france etc.
You make a careless speech (or as in this case a careless video), you better be prepared for the potential consequence irrespective of where you are located. The last time I checked, Edward Snowden is still hiding from the world supposed leader/crusader of freedom of speech

I don't think so. I think all he needs is a good/brilliant lawyer. He has a good case here.
The setting of the video is certainly that of drug barrons - wrapped substances, cutting of the substance and tasting it, weapons, ladies etc.
But the video also showed that the substance was later poured into boiling water and turned to SEMOVITA WHICH WAS DISHED IN A PLATE WITH SOME NICE PIECES OF BUSHMEATS AND HE ATE IT at the end of the video
O.B.O = Silly boy grin grin grin

I'm a big fan of Davido but that video was totally off. I don't mean the hard drug aspect, I mean the concept. It just didn't go with the message of the song itself.
