Naira Marley EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested new raving Nigerian artiste, Afeez Fashola who is better known as Naira Marley.

Naira  Marley, who came into limelight with his 2017 hit single “It’s a goal”, is currently being questioned at the EFCC office in Lagos over his controversial statement which endorsed ‘Fraudulent’ activities.

the commission EFCC spokesperson, Mr Tony Oritse, said “Yes, he is with us. He’s not the only person; he had some other persons also arrested alongside (him).

“They were arrested in relation to advance fee fraud — Internet-related cases and all of that. Give me a little time and I will get you the details.”

After, Naira Marley released the official music video of his hit tract “Am I A Yahoo Boy” featuring Zlatan on Thursday, he went on an Instagram live session to urge Nigerians to pray for Yahoo boys saying they are the reason money circulates to the common man.

He said: “All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?”

The video however, stirred up reactions from Internet trolls who described Marley as a disgrace and bad example to young Nigerians. Only few others supported him, saying that Yahoo boys are the reason some Nigerians can eat and survive.
