Naira Marley Set To Shoot COVID-19 Musical Video


Music Artiste, Azeez Fashola, popularly called Naira Marley, has promised to make an audio-visual work to campaign against the spread of the coronavirus.

Naira Marley made the pledge in a letter of apology he wrote to the Lagos State Government for attending a crowded birthday party on April 4, 2020, as against the social distancing directive of the government to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

LIFESTYLEGIST earlier reported that state government had filed charges against him before the state Magistrates’ Court in Ogba, but the state however, dropped all charges against him.

The state Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Yakub Oshoala, said the government will pardon him if  would tender a written apology to the government; sign an undertaking to henceforth comply with the social distancing and stay-at-home directives; and go into self-isolation for 14 days.

He accepted the conditions on Wednesday through his lawyer.

In his letter of apology, Naira Marley pledged to “join the Lagos State campaign against the spread of COVID-19 vide making a free audio-visual publication towards the campaign against COVID-19.”

He also wrote,
“Thank you and I remain committed to the development of Lagos State."

It would be recalled that, Funke Akindele and her husband were sentenced to 14-day community service, in addition to a fine of N100,000 each and an order that the state should put them in isolation for 14 days.
