There was a mild drama that ensued at the 6th All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) as the Minister for Information and Culture; Alhaji Lai Mohammed was made mockery of boos and catcalls while delivering a speech on the stage.
The drama started halfway through proceedings, the Minister was invited to deliver his speech and as soon as he appeared from backstage, a section of the crowd, made up of youths who sat in the regular ticket section started booing him, drowning his voice and rendering his speech almost totally inaudible.
Amid the boos, jeers and catcalls, some people in the crowd could be heard shouting “go and sit down”, “liar”, “na lie”, and other detract calls.
Immediately delivering his speech, Alhaji Lai Mohammed was captured leaving the hall and headed straight for his waiting vehicle. He was seen off by some officials of AFRIMA who walked with him briskly to the exit.
