Embattled music star, Naira Marley has reacted to an apology letter from Execujet airlines to the federal government for conveying the artist and his team to Abuja for a concert amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Marley has been under serious criticisms after his concert led to the violation of the social distancing directive put in place by the Federal Government. Reacting to the development, the Nigerian Government suspended the operating license of Execujet for bringing the artist, whose real names are Azeez Fashola, and his team to Abuja.
Also, the FCT administration sealed up Jabi Lake Mall for hosting the concert. However, on Tuesday, Execujet issued a statement that they had no knowledge that Naira Marley was onboard.
According to the CEO of the airlines, Sam Iwuajoku, they thought the flight was for the honourable minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, who bears the same name as one of the passengers on the flight manifest. He added that he had no idea that it was for a ‘bunch of Useless people’, referring to Marley and his team.
In response, the artist took to Twitter, writing;
“Lool they asked for our names on the jet though and looooooooool ur pilot is a Marlian and everybody there is a Marlian too. my name is Azeez Adeshina Fashola and my lil brother’s name is moshood babatunde fashola” and u was begging me to tag y’all”
