Popular Nigerian rapper, Naira Marley might have to face fresh trouble very soon.
Marly, as he is fondly called, still has an alleged forgery case against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Child Right Advocates in Lagos State had risen against the Soapy singer over some lyrics in his song that they believe is corrupting children at an alarming rate.
The group described the manner at which the children are being corrupted by the artiste as worrisome, adding that the artist may need to face sanction if not tread with caution, especially as innocent children are being polluted with his different campaigns.
His style of music, which is a raw wrap and lifestyle, has made his fans call themselves Marlians.
“Currently, there is a real madness going on among the Nigerian youths all over the country now. The followers of a musician called Naira Marley are spreading like wildfire. All concerned stakeholders, especially parents, please, be careful and get conscious of this trend and movement. Many high school students and undergraduates are the chief followers of this guy. They call themselves Marlians,” they said.
They said, “Marlians don’t have manners and don’t give a damn”. They smoke India hemp and other banned substances freely, without caution. “Monitor your children and wards. Manners and anthems are getting beyond our thoughts and are very ferocious. It’s high time we got hold of it before our future is taken away from us. As parents, we owe our children that duty of care and moral directional guides in the way of the Lord”, a Child advocate, Mrs Racheal lamented.
