Nigerian Popular singers, Michael Ajereh alias Don Jazzy, and Tiwatope Savage alias Tiwa Savage, have been picked up and quizzed by the DSS.
According to Saharareporters, the two celebrities were invited to the Lagos office of the DSS two weeks ago where they were all warned about making utterances against the government
Savage’s warning came after she began a movement known as “WeAreTired” on social media where she slammed the government on its attitude towards the incessant cases of rape in the country.
Sources close to Savage’s camp said the music star will not relent to make her voice heard when it comes to speaking for the ordinary Nigerian.
Jazzy was reportedly warned to be careful with the kind of posts he shares on his social media accounts.
Together with Don Jazzy, Tiwa was invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were warned to be careful with their posts on social media.
Shortly after that episode, the two celebrities together with 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 in the state and country, warned the musicians to steer clear of political comments in order not to incur the wrath of the President Buhari administration.
However, it appears that Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage have toned down their social media posts in recent days after the meeting with the DSS and police in Lagos.
For example, Don Jazzy, who is known to actively engage his numerous followers on social media, last posted anything on Twitter for more than 22 hours while Tiwa never continued with her hashtag after the meeting with DSS Director at their Shangisha, Lagos office.
Apart from the two celebrities, the DSS has also invited a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia, over his comments on the operations of Boko Haram in the Northern part of Nigeria.
In reaction to the development, a concerned fan asked Don Jazzy on an Instagram Live session if he was recently picked up and quizzed by DSS and below is his “unbothered” response;
