Popular Nigerian singer, Mc Galaxy has reacted to the backlash following alleged video of him asking girls to reveal their bodies for N50,000. The singer was under attack online on Sunday after an Instagram video of him asking ladies to strip naked for N50,000 went viral. In the viral live Instagram video which has since stirred reactions from celebrities and Nigerians, a girl was seen dancing naked to one of his songs.
Actress Toyin Abraham on Sunday attacked Galaxy for asking girls to reveal their bodies for the sum of N50,000, adding that such post promotes negative notion about women. On her Instagram page, she wrote: “Dear MC Galaxy, what you did asking girls to go naked for 50k is despicable, debasing, and bad in every way.
“You just further strengthen the believe that the easiest way women can get things is to sell their bodies. I sincerely can’t fathom what you need or gain from this despicable act when you could have checked in on porn sites.”
But, reacting, Mc Galaxy on Monday denied asking anyone to strip naked for N50,000. He defended himself, explaining that it was his friend that promised to give a lady who called and stripped naked for him N50,000 while on Instagram live.
“On Friday night live, I held an IG live session where fans called in to show their talent. some rapped, sang and some danced. We got calls from everywhere both guys and ladies called in to showcase their talent.
“At some point, a particular lady called in with her clothes on. I actually dropped her off but the fans from the comments insisted I accept her request, so I did. “As she danced, a friend declared her the winner and promised to give her 50,000naira to dance naked. There was no price tag for anybody to go naked. This issue was a case of Instagram live that went out of hand.
“If you follow my page, you would know that I have the utmost respect for women. I have helped a lot of my female followers, ladies who without asking anything in return and without informing anyone. My apologies; we will handle things better next time,” Galaxy explained.
