The singer said if he was tagged a bad influence that he was still trying to find what prompted him to be one.

He also wondered why those who condemn him do not take time to find out why, just as he described himself as the problem of Nigeria.

“If I’m a #badinfluence I’m still trying to work out what influenced me to be bad.
Why don’t y’all care? I’m a youth too” Naira Marley tweeted.

The song was produced by TBA.

Naira Marley’s Trial

A Federal High Court in Lagos state on Thursday fixed December 11 and 12 as dates for continuation of the singer’s trial.

Marley, charged by Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is facing 11 counts bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit credit cards, and fraud.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo adjourned the case shortly after defence counsel Olalekan Ojo (SAN) had begun cross examination of the first prosecution’s witness.

The court moved the trial to a further date after some arguments erupted between counsel in suit following insufficient seating arrangement.

According to the counts, the defendant allegedly committed the offences on 26 November, 2018, 11 December, 2018, and 10 May, 2019.

The “Issa goal” singer was arraigned on 20 May before Justice Oweibo, but he denied the charges.

Following a bail application by his counsel, Ojo, the court granted Fashola bail in the sum of N2 million with sureties in like sum.
