Naira Marley, the Nigerian singer, has been enlisted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for its War Against Drug Abuse (WADA) advocacy campaign.


In a post on X — formerly Twitter –Femi Babafemi, the NDLEA spokesperson, said the agency will on Friday put out the singer’s first message against drug abuse.

“See who’s on board ⁦@ndlea_nigeria War Against Drug Abuse, WADA, advocacy campaign; it’s your fav, Naira Marley,” he wrote.

“Watch out for the video of his message to Marlians and Nigerian youths here tomorrow.”



Born Azeez Fashola, Naira Marley paid a courtesy visit to Mohamed Burba Marwa, the chairman of the agency, on Thursday.

The Marlian Music record founder visited the headquarters of the NDLEA in the company of members of his team.

Marley also declared support for the war against drug abuse.


The photos have continued to stir a wave of reactions on social media.

In March 2022, Naira Marley was in the news over the arrest of Zinoleesky and Mohbad — his record label signee and former label artiste respectively — by the NDLEA.

The artistes were arrested alongside four others “after some quantities of Cannabis and Molly were recovered from their apartment and car”.

Shortly after their arrest, Naira Marley shared a video of himself smoking heavily while in the company of his team.
