Stop using drugs, the rapper Naira Marley warns her followers.
Naira Marley, a well-known musician from Nigeria, paid a visit to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s national office in August.
Naira Marley is a mysterious figure in the Nigerian music scene. Particularly for the music that has brought him widespread popularity and divided opinions.
The well-known musician, the head of Marlian Records, paid a courtesy visit to the NDLEA national headquarters on August 17, 2023. And was welcomed there by Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa (RTD), the agency’s chairman.
He urged his followers to refrain from using drugs in a video that was uploaded to NDLEA’s social media page.
He appeared in a video expressing his support for the NDLEA effort to end drug-usage among young people in Nigeria. “I would like to urge my fans (the Marlians) and all Nigerian youths to stop doing drug. Because it’s not good for your well-being let’s stop substance abuse in any form,” he stated.
The Marlian president showing up at the NDLEA headquarters stunned many X users, who have subsequently responded to the video in droves.
The singer dominated the mainstream in 2019 and became well-known for his anti-establishment views. Which put him at war with the EFCC and led to some people viewing his music as immoral.
It is unexpected that Naira Marley would publicly support the NDLEA given that he frequently sings about marijuana. And has previously posted videos of himself smoking on social media.
In any case, the NDLEA is optimistic that Naira Marley’s popularity and support on the street will go a long way toward lowering drug use among Nigerian youngsters.
