Azeez Fashola, Nigerian singer better known as Naira Marley, has stirred up the hornet’s nest on social media platforms over his thoughts on the novel coronavirus.

The talented singer took to his Twitter page on Monday to ask his followers to retweet his post if they’re among those who don’t believe in COVID-19.

“Naira Marley is looking for attention. Trying to get more infamous. He’ll soon release a song about Corona Virus. Don’t take him seriously. He’s our well-paid clown,” another user said.
