A certain Mike Nwogu popularly known as “Pretty Mike” has incurred the wrath of Nigerians on social media for turning up at events with an entourage of young ladies tied with dog chains around their necks.
The actions of the 30 year old Mike who owns ‘Club Uno’ located around Ikeja area, Lagos didn’t cause a stir at first when he attended a wedding late last year in company of the awkwardly costumed girls, but his more recent and frequent appearances have been met with outrage on social media platforms in the country.
He now frequently appears at functions with two girls chained up like dogs, dressed in black and who lead him while he holds their chains.
As soon as the pictures surfaced on the social media, many Nigerians felt it was all shades of wrong, especially as the picture showed about five policemen laughing at the bizarre sight.
The Computer Engineering graduate is said to run ‘Club Uno’ formerly known as Q Club alongside his elder brother, Frank Nwogu, also known as Don Nero.
Speaking on the issue, Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha said:
“Why are so many of us mute on this matter? Actors? Musicians, models and elected officials?
“When did our society become numb to everything morally wrong and inexcusable? When did we as a nation and people degenerate to this level?”
“I expect all to be shouting and using their place in the society to call out this folly”
“If this were to be a white man today on the streets of Lagos tying two black girls or boys on a leash; I bet we will all cry foul and call for his execution, so why do we all think its ok? Because he is a black man?”
Chidi Okereke tweeting from @Chydee wrote: “What Pretty Mike is doing may not be illegal, but it is disgusting on so many levels and anyone with a sense of decency will condemn it.”
Ego Joy Mark wrote: “This country must really be so hard for girls to allow Pretty Mike tie their necks with dog chain. At a point I began to think he uses jazz on girls. Premium UNILAG babes fighting themselves over him.”
Deji Dope asked the most pertinent question: “Why would anyone allow that Pretty Mike guy into their wedding with two women on a leash?”
Mercy Okam said: “Girls really need to be empowered. They are worth more than being treated like dogs.”
One Obi Dim was more concerned about the lackadaisical attitude of the policemen shown in the background of the picture. He said: “And you have those who are supposed to be protecting us laughing in the background.”
