A Nigerian man has taken to social media to mock rapper Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, over his arrest and detention by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged cybercrime.
The man, identified as Francis Isisogu, noted that the Nigerian music industry is filled with individuals whose alternative source of income is fraud but they never speak on it and so no one suspects them.
He then stated further that Naira Marley actually thought he was immune to investigations since he is an ally with ace rapper Olamide.
Mocking the rapper, the man mentioned that by the time he is out of EFCC custody, he will want to switch to singing gospel music and the value of the Naira in his name would have dropped.
Naira Marley is just a worthy scapegoat. He sacrificed himself for the rest of them in the industry to have sense. Great guy. 😁👍
The Nigerian Music Industry is rife with folks whose alternative source of income is also fraud, but they all keep a low profile.
Uncle Naira Marley thought he was immune cuz he knows Olamide. By the time you’re out, you’ll switch to Gospel music & be featuring Frank Edwards. 😂😂😂
By the time Naira Marley finally comes out of this whole EFCC trouble, the value of the Naira in his name would have dropped… 😂😂😂
WuzupNigeria recalls that the EFCC filed 11 fraud charges against the singer which border on credit card fraud. He risks seven years in jail if found guilty.

Released via Golda-Amit, The Appetizer EP was composed and written entirely by Merci-Lisa, and according to her, is inspired by her:
“Journey and experience as a young female artist. I started her career at a low point, with disappointments, betrayal and a lack of path to success, and at that low point, I felt like my world was coming to a screeching halt.
“However, everything changed when I met the guys at Golda-Amit because my career and talent were given a flourishing environment and the support I need to succeed as a female Afro Pop-Soul artist in an industry dominated by well-resourced male performers.
“All the tracks on this ‘Appetizer’ EP are written with deep passion, emotion, admiration for true love, admiration for conquering life’s adversities, and satiation for good music that transcend the test of time.”
Listen to “Love Potion” below and listen to Merci-Lisa’s Appetizer EP on your usual streaming platform here.
