Azeez Fashola, Nigerian singer better known as Naira Marley, has pledged to shoot a musical video in partnership with the Lagos state government to support the ongoing fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
TheCable Lifestyle had reported how the state government withdrew its charges against the singer alongside and Babatunde Gbadamosi, former governorship candidate, for flouting the lockdown directives.
The state had earlier arraigned the two alongside Folashade, Gbadamosi’s wife, on four-count charges for attending a house party organised by Funke Akindele, Nollywood actress.
Part of the conditions for the withdrawal of the charges was that they must write an apology letter to the governor and president to indicate their remorsefulness.
In the apology letter dated April 9 and addressed to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Marley declared his commitment to support the fight against the pandemic in the state.
“I hereby undertake to join the Lagos State campaign against the spread of the COVID-19 by making a free audio-visual publication towards the campaign against COVID-19,” the letter partly read.
“Thank you and I remain committed to the development of Lagos State.”
The development comes after Akindele and Abdulrasheed Bello, her husband, were sentenced to 14-day community service each for going against social distance measures put in place to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
