Musicians Don Jazzy And Tiwa Savage Allegedly Quizzed By DSS Over Alleged Political Utterances Against President Buhari's Government

Details have emerged on how Nigerian music producer, Michael Ajereh widely known as Don Jazzy, and Tiwatope Savage popularly known as Tiwa Savage, were invited by the Department of State Serviced for questioning over alleged political utterances against the administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari.





In recent months, following a sharp rise in sexual assault cases across Nigeria especially against women, Tiwa Savage began a movement known as “WeAreTired” in protest of the situation.

Through the movement, the musician called on Buhari's administration to take action to stem the tide of rape in the country.

According to findings by SaharaRepoters, this in addition to several posts on social media calling on the government to live up to its responsibilities to Nigerians earned Tiwa Savage an invitation by the DSS.

Together with Don Jazzy, Savage was invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were warned to be careful with their posts on the 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.

A member of Tiwa Savage's management team, who confirmed the development to SaharaRepoters, said that the celebrated female artiste will not stop speaking for Nigerians regardless of any move by government.

But as if to confirm the subtle warning from government, Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage both appear to 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 more than 22 hours while Tiwa Did not  continue with her hashtag after the meeting with DSS Director at their Shangisha, Lagos office.

  1. The funny thing is that PMB himself did not ask anyone to warn or invite anyone. But by some Aide or APC chieftain. Anyway it is all transient.

    4. Which one is paining you now? That he didn't know? We all know we have a clueless person heading the government and praying for this term to end even if we don't know who is coming next. Hope you will be OK with your dad being shipped into a nursing home as well?

  2. Mehn..this is serious. So this government is going about to shut down the few celebrities bold enough to join their voices with that of the masses.. little wonder some celebs don't criticize government policies on social media. What is wrong in asking the government to do better?! This is serious!

    1. Its the reason dey wanted dat social media bill so ppl will not have a voice.
      If you are doing your job will ppl be criticizing ur Govt. When Fashola was Governor in lagos state how many ppl were tweeting rubbish abt him. Why? He was atlst doing a good job compared to our incompetent leaders. Even d few dat criticized him ppl were ready to defend him.
