The controversial hip hop artist, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, advised his fans on Wednesday, whom he called “Marlians,” to distrust his lifestyle so as not to mortgage his future.
The music star made known through his Twitter page @nairamarley that young people should not jeopardize their future while enjoying their lives.
According to him, while you enjoy your life, you should not destroy your future.
“Like Marlian, you should enjoy your youth but not destroy your future,” he tweeted.
Marley’s tweet could be related to recent events where fans were delighted with his academic background.
The bubbly singer, who was seen as a bad influence due to his way of life and the statements that allegedly support Internet fraud, could have changed his usual version of life.
The singer, despite being called on social networks, defies all forecasts and is still releasing music that apparently promotes immorality.
NAN reports that the Director General of the National Guidance Agency (NOA), Mr. Garba Abari, had expressed deep concern over what he called the heinous lifestyles of some Nigerian artists.
He noted that the lifestyle of some artists was negatively influencing youth.
Meanwhile, in a recent live Instagram session, the singer urged Nigerians to pray for internet scammers (Yahoo boys), saying they are the reason that money circulates to the common man.
He said: “All of you, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, do you think it is the government that is spinning the money?”
Since then, the video aroused reactions from Nigerians, who described Marley as a disgrace and a bad example for young Nigerians.
