Naira Marley has been spotted in public for the first time since his release from police custody.


The singer was arrested in October alongside Sam Larry, his associate, following allegations of their involvement in the death of Mohbad, Marley’s former signee.

They were released on bail in November after spending over five weeks in detention.

In a now-viral video, Marley was spotted in the company of Sam Larry and Zinoleesky, one of his signees.


They were all smiles as they visited an orphanage in Lagos.

In another video, the trio were seen giving out food items to the needy.

The video has sparked several mixed reactions on social media, with some happy that they had regained their freedom and others expressing their displeasure at the Mohbad case remaining inconclusive.


Naira Marley is still on trial for cyber fraud.

He was prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in 2019.

The singer was arraigned in May 2019, but he pleaded not guilty.

The court had accordingly granted him bail of N2 million, with two sureties in like sum.


The trial resumed in October at about the same time when a magistrate court sitting in Yaba held that Naira Marley be remanded in police custody for 21 days in relation to Mohbad’s death.

On November 13, the trial was stalled at the federal high court in Ikoyi, Lagos following the absence of the judge.

The hearing has now been adjourned to November 30, 2023.
