The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called on the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission to ban the latest song by Portable, on the basis that it encourages ritual k*lling.

‘Kuku Do Ritual’, was released on Friday, January 20th, 2023, where was heard asking people who desire to make money, to resort to diabolical means to get money as d*ath is the general conclusion for all human beings irrespective of their actions.

In a signed statement released on Monday, MURIC Director, Dr. Ishaq Akintola stated that the song is an open invitation to criminality and demanded that the government act quickly in curbing the negative effect on youths.

“We find this song disgusting, detestable, and egregious. It is a brazen assault on Nigerian and African values. Portable’s latest song has reduced human life to the level of ordinary ants that can be stamped out under human feet without qualms and consequences. It is an open invitation to criminality. It makes a mockery of law and order. It is an open disrespect for human life,” it reads.

“This song can negatively influence our young ones. It is also capable of destroying the future of the youth. Something must be done urgently. Already, there are several reports of young ones engaging in a shameful acts to get rich at their tender ages.

“MURIC calls on all men of goodwill, all mothers in Nigeria, Muslim and Christian leaders to rise against the madness called Yahoo Yahoo and ritual killings among young ones whose ambassador has just released this horrendous song in their praise. ‘Kuku Do Ritual’ is nothing but a eulogy to glorify and elevate the names of ritual killers to high heaven.

“This album calls for immediate action from Nigeria’s traditional rulers. They are the custodians of our tradition. We, therefore, take our cry for help to these royal fathers to speak up on this sacrilegious song released by ‘Portable’. They must put pressure on the authorities to stop the circulation and broadcast of this album on any radio or television station and through any medium whatsoever”.

“We invite the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB), the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), and the Performing Musicians’ Association of Nigeria (PMAN) to take necessary action with military dispatch,” it added.

“We see no reason why the security agencies should not investigate the author of this most embarrassing and irrational song to explain the number of rituals in which he has indulged. A scapegoat must be made of this album and its artist before the trend escalates”.

“Nobody should hide behind artistic privilege, poetic license, or freedom of expression to launch a such barbaric offensive on our culture, our norms, and our values. This is beyond free speech. It is criminal speech. It is incitement to commit murder. It is instigation to criminality. It is a bestial invasion of decency and good manners.”
