BNXN warns Nigerian clubs against counterfeit drinks
In a recent development that has resonated within the Nigerian music industry, acclaimed singer, songwriter and record producer, Daniel Benson, popularly known as BNXN, has issued a strong caution to clubs across the country regarding the sale of counterfeit beverages.
The artist, renowned for his hit track 'Finesse,' expressed his dissatisfaction following a recent incident at a Lagos club where he alleges to have purchased a "fake" drink after payment.
Venting his frustration, BNXN took X (formerly known as Twitter) on Sunday, December 10 to address the matter, underscoring the potential risks associated with such deceptive practices. He particularly emphasized the adverse effects on both the well-being and finances of patrons, pointing out the exorbitant cost of drinks at these establishments.
In a passionate appeal, BNXN implored, "Stop selling us fake drinks after spending so much money on the overpriced drinks. You’re killing us. Respect my health, Respect my money. Give me what I pay for. If you don’t have it, don’t bring a fake one!"
Taking a bold stance, BNXN issued a warning to other clubs and lounges, declaring his intention to publicly expose any establishment found selling him counterfeit drinks in the future. He hinted at the possibility of a dramatic intervention, threatening to seize the microphone from the hypeman during his performance to address the issue directly.
"The next club or lounge that does this to me, I promise I will take that microphone from the hypeman and let you know!", He added.
This revelation not only highlights the challenges encountered by patrons in the nightlife scene but also underscores the imperative for establishments to prioritize the quality and authenticity of the products they offer.
As BNXN leverages his platform to champion consumer rights, the Nigerian entertainment industry eagerly anticipates whether his warning will instigate positive changes in the beverage service standards at clubs nationwide.
