In a surprising development, Naira Marley, a popular Nigerian music artist, and his assistant, Sam Larry, have allegedly been taken into custody.
This follows a highly publicized incident involving the assault on fellow musician Mohbad, which has sent shockwaves throughout the entertainment industry and sparked a strong demand for justice.
The controversy began when a video surfaced online showing Sam Larry, an aide of Naira Marley, harassing Mohbad during the filming of a music video. In the disturbing footage, Sam Larry is seen striking Mohbad from behind while he was in a wheelchair, accompanied by an elderly woman and fellow artist Zlatan. Zlatan intervened to stop the assault.
The video quickly went viral, capturing the attention of fans and the general public, who expressed their outrage and called for a thorough investigation into the incident. Many were deeply disappointed by the actions of Naira Marley’s entourage and called for a boycott of his music as a way to condemn such behavior in the industry.
Initially, Sam Larry attempted to limit comments on his Instagram page in response to mounting criticism. However, this did not prevent people from expressing their condemnation. Eventually, Sam Larry deactivated his social media accounts, further intensifying public scrutiny.
Meanwhile, Naira Marley continued to post on his Snapchat, drawing surprise from netizens who noted his apparent lack of concern amidst the controversy. It is worth mentioning that when news of Mohbad’s passing surfaced, Naira Marley had posted a broken heart emoji as his only reaction.
The reported arrest of Naira Marley and Sam Larry is related to the physical assault on Mohbad during his lifetime and not directly linked to his passing. Netizens are relieved that the authorities are taking action to ensure accountability.
