Congress of all progressives, APC, the youth rebirth group has reacted to Peter Okoye of P-square perceived ‘insult’ in the federal government of Nigeria.
The brothers, through their Instagram pages, had questioned the alleged movement of the federal government to ban the production of music videos abroad.
They said the federal government was trying to control what it never supported, adding that one day law would emerge that would monitor how they go to bed with their wives.
Reacting in a statement signed by APC’s national youth secretary, Collins Edwin, the group described Peter Okoye as a “son of darkness.”
According to APC, “we read with great anger and anger the uncritical comments attributed to Mr Peter Okoye of the Psquare group against the Federal Government’s labor-saving policy in the entertainment industry.
“The majority of people who make a scathing comment against the government is the Psquare group, which the local content policy of the Federal Government sprinkled from the valley of darkness.
“Where was Peter Okoye or the Psquare brand in 1999 when foreign music dominated our airwaves? If not for the government policy that mandated that all broadcast stations in Nigeria pay attention to Nigerian music by touching 95 per cent of the Nigerian songs every day, would Peter Okoye or Psquare know someone today in Nigeria?
“Or would they have competed with better American music that dominated our radio waves then?
“After the government has used its policy to move from nothing to something, instead of giving opportunities to other people, they are taking Nigerian jobs to foreign countries by filming music videos abroad.
“Now that the government has intervened to recruit great and better artists again, Peter Okoye has the instinct to insult the entire Federal Government by calling our great leaders ‘Ndi Ala’, which means crazy and stupid people. to say that Psquare?
“Therefore, we urge the country’s security agencies to arrest Peter Okoye for disrespecting our government and bringing it to disrepute.
“If you can not produce in Nigeria and hire Nigerians, then leave the industry, we have to export Nigerian culture to the outside world through our music and videos.”
