Azadus, who used to be a prominent Nigerian singer, took to his social media page and called out DSTV for airing an inappropriate cartoon on Cartoon Network which is meant to be a station for children.
Azadus said the inappropriate cartoon showed a female character giving a hand job while n’aked to a male character. This made him cry out for help and asked people to repost till it gets to the Minister of Information.
“Dear DSTV, I hope you guys are not mad ? Please lets repost this until it gets to Oga Lai Mohammed”
The management of DSTV has come out to deny what Azadus said.
Read their Statement below;
A statement displayed earlier today on DStv’s Facebook page reads:
“We are aware of the justified concern of some of our African viewers regarding what purportedly shows inappropriate content on Cartoon Network.
“We can confirm without hesitation that these images are not authentic and have never been broadcasted or shared on any official Cartoon Network platforms in Africa in any capacity.
“The fake images on social media were not produced by Cartoon Network, and are in no way representative of our goal to provide suitable, age-appropriate entertainment for African children and families.”
This development is similar to negative reactions received when Disney’s “Star vs the Forces of Evil” aired its first G.ay scene.
The major concern is that children, who make up the main audience of the programme will be badly influenced by the content.
In an Africa where H0m0sexual activities are strongly frowned against, such message is seen as a plot to derail kids from cultural values prescribed by their society.’
