The Islamic human rights organisation, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has condemned the new album released by the uprising Nigeria singer, Portable by saying it has the potential to encourage ritual killing and misleading Nigerian youth.
MURIC’s statement was released on Monday, 23rd January, 2023 by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.
The statement reads :
“Popular pop singer, Habeeb Okikiola, has released a new album under the title ‘Kuku Do Ritual’ in which part of the lyrics say, ‘Kuku do ritual. If you do ritual you go die. If you no do ritual you go die. Kuku do ritual’.
“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 without consequences. It is an open invitation to criminality. It makes mockery of law and order. It is an open disrespect for human life.
