Daddy Showkey comes under serious attack for advising the EFCC on how to deal with artist Naira Marley
One-time popular Nigerian musician turned activist, Daddy Showkey, has come out to openly plead with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Naira Marley's behalf.
Showkey, in a video, explained that his long silence on the matter between Naira Marley, Rugged man and EFCC was because of the open show of disrespect by Naira Marley towards an elderly musician like Ruggedman.
According to the activist, Naira was wrong to have defended internet fraudsters and made a caricature of Ruggedman. He decided to plead with the EFCC that the punishment meted out on Naira Marley was too much and they should temper justice with mercy.
Showkey also admitted to delving into illegal jobs back in the day while still hustling on the streets of Lagos to make ends meet. He buttressed that Naira Marley should be forgiven and that he was defending internet fraud probably under the influence of drugs.
Fans who hold Daddy Showkey in high esteem aren't having this, as they have taken to bashing him on his Instagram page. Many felt he should have maintained silence over the issue and was wrong to have pleaded that the EFCC let the artiste go.
