Management of Nigerian artist, Naira Marley has issued a statement concerning his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC.
The statement seen below tends to clarify the singer’s stance and motive behind his new song “Am I A Yahoo Boy”.
“The current situation with Naira Marley is extremely unfortunate. On May 10th, 2019, Naira Marley was arrested in the early early hours of his birthday.“
We heard there had been complaints and concerns around his recent comments around cyber crime, Naira did not publicly defend those who commit fraud, he expressed his view on the situation which was simply his opinion in which every human being is entitled to.“
Following on from this, he innocently made a playful, reactive song “am i a yahoo boy?” in response to the growing feed-backs he received. As an artiste, music is Naira’s avenue of expressing himself, the son “am i a yahoo boy?” is a rhetorical question, assuming people would find it humourous as well as be a light-hearted response to those tackling him online.
