Naira Marley under attack for Abuja concert
Naira Marley under attack for Abuja concert after evidence of flouting Social distancing procedures surfaces on social media.
A section of Nigerian social media users have called out Naira Marley and the government over a drive in concert held in Abuja.
Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley is being called out on social media after he held a fully packed concert last night in Abuja.
The concert by Naira Marley raised eyebrows on Twitter after videos of him flying into Abuja despite the ban on flights and of people dancing at his show avoiding social distancing guidelines surfaced.
According to reports, it was initially planned to be a ‘drive-in’ concert but in the spirit of grooving, fun-seekers violated social distancing and there was quite a large number of people at the venue.
Nigerians question authorities for allowing such crowd despite increasing cases of coronavirus in Nigeria. Though there are mixed reactions with people supporting him.
Here are some reactions showing Naira Marley under attack for Abuja concert from Nigerians on twitter
@adeyanjudeji “Dear @PoliceNG, Arrest Naira Marley and the organizers of the Jabi Lake concert now. This insensitivity cannot be overlooked.”
@drpenking “I don’t want to hear anybody asking how Naira Marley managed to travel to Abuja again. When Nigerian Government says, “No inter-state transport,” there is a silent “…for the poor” following it.”
@OgbeniDipo “Why should Naira Marley (who seem to like so much walaha) be arrested again when we watched on TV how several government officials who work with the president flout the lockdown rules and nothing happened to them? The Aisha Buhari issue is also about an SA flying around.”
@SecretaryAce “The number of people at the concert Naira Marley performed in shows that a lot of people don’t believe Coronavirus is in Nigeria. Both the federal government and NCDC have not done enough to prove otherwise.”
@chibuking300 “Why should he be arrested?
When officials of govt were flouting NCDC instructions,who arrested them? What is sauce for the goose is good for the gander.
Leave Naira Marley alone.”
