Nigerian Singer, Azeez Fashola, known professionally as Naira Marley is trending on social media after he held a packed concert last night in Abuja.
Apparently, it was meant to be a ‘drive-in’ concert but in the spirit of grooving, fun-seekers defied social distancing and there was quite a large number of people at the venue.

I thought Naira Marley was reprimanded when he attended Funke Akindele’s party? Why is he defiling orders again? Everybody be boss for Naija!

Naira Marley had a concert yesterday and the place was filled with people and I have small questions..
– @NCDCgov Said not more than 20 people?
– I thought I heard flights are grounded because I know he was in Lagos last week.
Just send this Country out on Loan like Salah.

Naira Marley had a concert in Abuja full of people in the middle of a pandemic that has now killed thousands of Nigerians.
You see why many other people say the Virus is not in Nigeria.
Government has failed here. The irresponsibility of the people aside.

The organizers, attendees and that thing calling himself Naira Marley should all be quarantined for a month and they should only be served biscuits and pure water.
