Azeez Fashola, Nigerian street singer better known as Naira Marley, says the federal government is creating conditions for trouble by “neglecting youths on the street”.


The 25-year-old music star took to his social media page to disclose this, alleging that the youths have “no future” because of the government’s alleged inability to “support them”.

According to the ‘Soapy’ crooner, by not appropriating the needed attention to the youths, governments at various levels are overtly birthing an atmosphere with grave consequences.

“Our government’s creating conditions for trouble(that can have dramatic consequences)Neglecting youths on the street with no hope, no support and no future,” he wrote on Twitter.



The controversial singer’s comment comes about the same time he urged ‘Marlians’, a coined name for his avid fans, to enjoy their youth but ensure they don’t destroy their future.

“As a Marlian u have to enjoy your youth but don’t destroy your future,” he had said.

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.


The singer had also gotten embroiled in a fresh wave of controversy after a Lagos court ordered his arrest over alleged car theft. The case was later dismissed.
