The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has petitioned the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to ban the song ‘Kuku Do Ritual’ by Habeeb Okikiola popularly known as Portable.
Portable just released a controversial song in which he encouraged those pursuing wealth to embrace ritual.

“Kuku do ritual, if you do ritual you go die, if you no do ritual you go die. Kuku do ritual” he sings in the less than four-minutes project.
MURIC’s director, Ishaq Akintola, condemned the song as a “open invitation to criminality” in a statement issued on Monday, January 23, 2023.
“We find this song disgusting, detestable and egregious. It is a brazen assault on Nigerian and African values. Portable’s latest song has reduced human life to the level of ordinary ants that can be stamped out under human feet without qualms and without consequences. It is an open invitation to criminality. It makes a mockery of law and order. It is an open disrespect for human life,” the statement reads.
“This song has the capacity to influence our young ones in a negative manner. It is also capable of destroying the future of the youth. Something must be done urgently. Already, there are several reports of young ones engaging in shameful act for the purpose of getting rich in their tender ages.

“MURIC calls on all men of goodwill, all mothers in Nigeria, Muslim and Christian leaders to rise against the madness called Yahoo Yahoo and ritual killings among young ones whose ambassador has just released this horrendous song in their praise. ‘Kuku Do Ritual’ is nothing but a eulogy to glorify and elevate the names of ritual killers to high heaven.”
