As I enjoyed the heat associated with frequent power outages in my area last night, May 2 2016, I received a number of calls from strange people who claimed to be on the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) about a supposed leaked sekxstape of a first year female student and her boyfriend which was being circulated widely.
In as much as I was surprised as to how they got my phone contact and why they would call me on such a useless subject (useless because I’ve never been interested in such topics), I was extremely shocked that any individual will in this day and time shoot a sekxstape. Like why? Considering the fact that such tapes have always leaked and caused enough disgrace to the individuals involved, their families and even the academic institutions as well.
As though all the surprise and shock were not enough, the greatest height of stupidity was when I was informed that a number of students who had the video had turned the forecourt of the Independence Hall as a distribution ground and guess the numbers present? Perhaps as huge as YFM would get when organizing Area Codes Jam. Are you surprised? Well, I am as well.
Guess why they had gathered at the forecourt. Reliable information I gather indicates that the lady in the said tape is a resident of the Independence Hall and so students from rival halls Unity Hall and University Hall (Katanga) had gathered to fish the girl out and find out who the guy involved was since his face was not captured. You see the stupidity? For halls who will kill each other gather in one accord just because of a sekxtape.
The biggest question I ask is, how did that just happen? What were the hall authorities doing and what all in the name of God were the security personalities who have been roaming the university’s campus aimlessly doing when they realized a number of students had gathered for such an unconventional meeting?
In a country where it is even illegal to distribute such tapes, I seem to so much admire the bravery of such students to share such a video for the viewing pleasure of other students. Wow!! These students could easily pass for any world war should it ever happen.
As it stands, most of the universities have in one way or the other been involved in such a story. What could be wrong?
My biggest question is, what would the University authorities do? The usual and hey, what about the brave students who turned into movie distributors at the forecourt? A possible lawsuit by the lady after dealing with the outcome of the University’s decision?
