Handlers of musician, Inyanya (Inyanya Mbuk) have embarked on a major mission.
To protect their artiste from the backlash of recent criticism of his performance, via one of his dancers, for promoting nudity by the deputy governor of Lagos State, Adejoke Orelope Adefulire.
Inyanya and his dancer performed at the closing ceremony of the MTN Lagos Street Soccer at the Campos Mini Stadium in Lagos Island.
The dancer performed numerous lewd and erotic moves to the singer’s lyrics in a see through pant- with nothing underneath.
The Deputy Governor described the performance as ‘degrading and disgracing to womanhood,’ telling the dancer: ‘If you must entertain without pants on, certainly not in a gathering like this. Just see how you are disgracing and degrading womanhood. Don’t try it again,’
The instant negative popularity the development attracted forced Inyanya’s handlers to initiate underground moves to quell the development.
According to a source ‘they are appealing to friends and sympathisers, in and out of the media, to overlook the occurrence’.
Sources confirm they don’t want Inyanya to be boxed into the corner of ‘that lewd performer the state government is not happy with.’ The fear is that this would greatly affect his endorsement deals – and potentials.
The singer recently netted a $220,000 and Prado Jeep endorsement deal with a phone company – Solo Phones.
