Some unknown individuals have taken over the Twitter account of Azeez Fashola, Nigerian street singer better known as Naira Marley.

The ‘Soapy’ crooner’s account — @officialnairam1 — was hacked on Monday by some persons or group known as “Fros”.

Checks by TheCable Lifestyle on the singer’s account show that the hackers are currently in charge of the page, having changed the profile and background pictures.

Below the profile picture is a terse written in Turkish, which when translated by Google reads: “Although the environment is virtual, the crime is real.”

More checks also reveal the hackers may be based in Denmark, and may also be operating an organisation called “frosciety.com”.

The development has left his over 683,000 followers worried with many taking to the microblogging platform to share their concern.

“Who the f**k is FROS… y’all go check NAIRA MARLEY’s page,” a user wrote.

Marley rode to fame last year on the groundswell of his lingering legal battle with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The anti-graft agency had arrested him on account of his controversial 2019 track and social media comments alleged to have upheld cybercrime.

An evidence of his growing popularity came to the fore in December 2019, when the singer amassed huge engagement on his Twitter account after he tweeted just a full stop.
