Ayuba Kicks Against Obscene Music

Fuji artiste, Adewale Ayuba, on Thursday expressed worries over obscene contents in music, saying they were impacting negatively on youths.

Ayuba told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that the Federal Government should tackle the problem before it became the norm.

The musician said if the government did not do this, it would negatively affect the psyche of the younger ones.

He said that the National Film and Video Censors Board had failed in its duties to halt music with negative contents and obscene views over the years.

Ayuba appealed to the government to either empower the board or scrap it and reconstitute a functional one that would bring sanity.

“This is not too late, let the government come up with a board that will be functional and halt this insane behaviour among musicians.

“Government should constitute a functional Censors Board that will ensure that every music is scrutinised before it is released into the market.

“These obscene videos and songs have been affecting children negatively,” he said.

He also noted that states should start enacting stringent sanctions against piracy.

“They should ensure that such sanctions are implemented so as to encourage more up-and-coming artistes. Nigerians who wish to become musicians are at present scared to embrace the profession because of the activities of pirates,” he added.
