Daddy Showkey has reacted to the arrest of Naira Marley by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
EFCC, on Wednesday released Zlatan Ibile, others who were arrested for fraud related chargesbut retained Marley in custody.
The veteran Nigerian singer, speaking on the development for the first time, said he did not react initially because he cannot endorse a small child (Naira Marley) insulting an elder (Ruggedman), especially when the elder is right.
In a video posted on his Instagram page, he added that he believes Naira Marley made the disrespectful comments about ‘ Yahoo Boys’under the influence of a substance he smoked.
Daddy Showkey, therefore, appealed to the EFCC to release Naira Marley
“A lot of Nigerians have called me because of Naira Marley.
“I lived a dangerous life on the streets as a young man but that doesn’t mean I will advise his child or any young person to live the same way and make the same mistakes I made.
“Temper justice with mercy. This is just a young man growing up. Let us not use his mistakes to spoil his career we all went through so many things growing up.
“We can use him as a spokesman to young people against crime EFCC,may be he will learn with this,” he said.
