[News] I am not a yahoo boy – Naira marley cries from jail as he begs for bail

Embattled musician, Azeez Fashola,
popularly known as Naira Marley who is currently in detention has granted an
interview saying he has two wives and four children who are all British citizens.
He said he is not a criminal and has no idea what the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission found on his laptop. Naira Marley, 28, said apart from storing his
songs and music videos, he had never
done anything illegal with his laptop.
He said this in his statement on oath which he made while in EFCC custody, which was obtained exclusively by Punch where he said; “My name is Azeez Fashola. I am married to two wives and I have
four kids. They are all British
citizens staying in the United
Kingdom. I studied in the United
Kingdom, started studying at
Porlock Hall, then I moved to
Walworth School where I received
my GCSE.
“My results for my GCSE are English
(C), Maths (B) and Science (C). “I
left Walworth School with my
qualification and went further to
study at Peckham Academy, where I
got distinction in Business. Then, I
went further to study at Crossways
College where I finished my
Business Law; but I had kids at that
time, so I took a break and started
making music till date.”
According to Naira Marley, he did
not own a laptop but was given one
to use temporarily to upload videos
on YouTube. He said, “I started
making music in 2014 individually
(sic), but now I’m signed to
Marathon, a United Kingdom-based
record label. I had a deal with Coca-
Cola for my song, Issa Goal, in
which I featured Olamide and Lil
Kesh. I also had deals with Nike to
participate in the Nigerian
sportswear (sic).
“I’m in possession of a MacBook
laptop, which I borrowed from a
friend named Yad Isril in England,
because while returning to Nigeria, I
knew I was going to need a laptop
to upload my music videos on
YouTube and also to keep my
exclusive songs. I’m in possession
of the laptop but I have no idea
what is on it apart from my music
videos.”
Naira Marley also said laptop had no
password and could be accessed by
anyone. He claimed to have met Isril in a secondary school in England. “He owns the butcher’s and an electronics shop in
England. He is a British citizen, though his family is from Iraq. “I don’t have a personal laptop at the moment because I don’t need it. “My management team handles everything I need to do on the laptop. I only use my iPhone X for everything I do,” he said.
