Rocker Sek Loso causing concern

Some people in Uttaradit have called on the provincial governor to reconsider allowing rock star Seksan "Sek Loso" Sukpimai perform in the northern province after the singer-guitarist smoked cigarettes on stage during a recent performance.

This photo posted to Facebook of Sek Loso's alleged drug-taking activities started off a scandal that led to the termination of his recording contract.

Kanyari Sirikanjanarak, a tourism official, said many people wanted governor Chalermchai Fuangkhon and the Phraya Phichai Dap Hak and Red Cross Fair organiser to keep a close watch on Sek Loso, who previously previously made headlines for drug and alcohol use.

Ms Kanyarai said Sek recently smoked cigarettes while performing at a fair in Uttaradit's Laplae district.

"The Uttaradit people are not against any artists who hold a concert, so long as their shows are appropriate and not vulgar.

"Many youths want to see Sek Loso perform and if his acts are inappropriate these young people might copy him," she said.

The Phraya Phichai Dap Hak and Red Cross Fair will be held outside the town hall in Uttaradit from Jan 7-16.

Last year, Sek Loso admitted that he took drugs and GMM Grammy later quickly terminated the popular singer's contract.

The troubled rocker then entered treatment for his drug habit.
