Following the bail granted Naira Marley through an Ikeja High Court sitting in Lagos all through the week, after temporarily staying in EFCC custody for prices bordering on credit card fraud, veteran rapper, Ruggedman,
who earlier than Marley become arrested had condemned him for encouraging cyber crime, has said that if he knew the case might increase to the level it did, he might no longer have lashed at him brazenly.
Ruggedman-Naira-Marley “If I say I’m not disturbed to realize how crazy this Naira Marley case has gotten I’ll be lying. I commented and counseled him like I would do as a senior colleague to a younger colleague due to the fact for me I knew and I could see that what he was pronouncing was no longer going to head properly with loads of humans; mainly the authorities, and that’s why I did what I did.
If I’d regarded it changed into going to get this bad I wouldn’t have said it everywhere I became glad he become arrested, insinuate or comic story about fraudster or whatever round him”, he said.
While advising the general public to stop sending negative vibes the rapper’s way, he added that no matter all that has transpired, Naira Marley remains his colleague within the music enterprise.
“No count what happens, he’s nonetheless a junior colleague inside the enterprise. If human beings that I don’t recognise randomly name on me about SARS trouble and I deliver the matter on my head to get justice for them, why in the world could I want to do something that could convey down a young artiste? That’s now not Ruggedman if you realize me you recognize me.
What he does no longer want proper now is lots of needless bad vibes. I’ve seen all the feedback and threats and everything. But what I’ll say is God bless everybody because we research by using what happens each day and what we do.”
He, however, entreated the rapper’s family, buddies and enthusiasts to show him love and support because he’s experiencing hard times. “What he needs right now’s own family, a few severe guide, a few people round him and a superb legal professional.
I pray he has that to plead his case. I wish him the pleasant and I hope that everybody learns from this that we need to be guarded on things we do and say. Because whether you’re a musician or now not, there are laws; there are guidelines and policies.
Whether the authorities is assisting or not, it doesn’t imply we break policies due to the fact we have authorities who maintain each person in take a look at. I surely desire and pray that he comes out of this properly. I want him luck and I want everyone good fortune”, he said.
