Naira Marley’s management has released a statement defending his songs and addressing the overwhelming evidence found on him by the EFCC.
Naira Marley has spent well over a week in EFCC’s custody since he was apprehended a day after his birthday along with his friend, Zlatan, and some others. While Zlatan and three others were recently released, Naira Marley remained in custody.
According to a spokesperson of the EFCC, the evidence against the singer is overwhelming and he will therefore remain with them. The rapper's management team, after several days of silence, has finally issued a statement regarding the rapper’s arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
In the statement below, the management team tries to clarify the singer’s stance on internet fraud and motives behind his new song “Am I A Yahoo Boy?” They also attempt to address the laptops and other materials found in his possession.
The statement released by the rapper's management is laughable, as it seems unlikely that an artiste who claims to be well off financially would borrow a laptop to record. If truly the materials found in the rapper’s possession are not his, then he should have no difficulty handing over the rightful owner to the EFCC. It is definitely an attempt to play on the intelligence of the general public, particularly fans of the artiste who aren't gullible enough to believe the statement.
