‘Music is not a crime”


UN rights experts asked Nigeria to release 22-year-old singer Yahaya Aminu Sharif, condemned to death over an allegedly blasphemou­s song. “Music is not a crime,” read a joint statement. “Applicatio­n of the death penalty for artistic expression or for sharing a song on the internet is a flagrant violation of internatio­nal human rights law, as well as of Nigeria’s constituti­on.”
