DSS Quizzes Don Jazzy &Tiwa Savage Over Alleged Political Utterances

News has it that Nigerian music producer, Don Jazzy, and Tiwa Savage, were invited by the Department of State Service for questioning over alleged political utterances against the administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari.

In recent months, following a pointy rise in sexual abuse cases across Nigeria especially against women, Tiwa Savage began a movement referred to as β€œWeAreTired” in protest of things.

Through the movement, the musician called on President Buhari’s administration to require action to stem the tide of rape within the country.

Her creation of several posts on social media calling on the government to measure up to its responsibilities to Nigerians earned Tiwa Savage missive of invitation by the DSS.

Tiwa Savage and Donjazzy

Together with Don Jazzy, Savage was invited to the DSS office in Lagos fortnight ago during which they were warned to use caution with their posts on the social media.

In a short time afterwards, the 2 celebrities along with their colleagues Yemi Alade and Waje were summoned by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, who while sharing efforts they were making to tackle rape and other problems within the state and country, warned the musicians to steer afar from political comments so as to not incur the wrath of the President Buhari’s administration.

A member of Tiwa Savage’s management team said that the celebrity won’t stop speaking for Nigerians no matter any move by the government.

But as if to substantiate the subtle warning from government, Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage both appear to have tempered their social media posts in recent days after the meeting with the DSS and police in Lagos.

To illustrate, Don Jazzy, who is understood to actively engage his over 9 million followers on social media, the last time he posted anything on Twitter was over 22 hours while Tiwa never continued with her #WeareTired hashtag after the meeting with DSS Director at their Shangisha, Lagos office.
