A Nigerian Twitter user, known as Shola (now using the handle X), has expressed his frustration with what he perceives as a publicity stunt by Sam Larry and Naira Marley to regain public favor.
According to a report from Kemi Filani, Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry, have generated attention online through their acts of kindness towards the less privileged. After regaining their freedom, the two made their first public appearance alongside Zinoleesky.
Videos circulating online show Zinoleesky engaging in conversation with Naira Marley and Sam Larry, earning praise for standing by his boss. In another clip, the three of them are seen getting into a car as Sam Larry records the moment.
Subsequently, the trio visited an orphanage where they made donations of food items.
As expected, their charitable deeds have received criticism from many, who believe that they are attempting to win back public affection.
Shola predicted that the disgraced singer and the socialite would resort to online giveaways in an effort to regain the support of social media users. He expressed concerns that those demanding justice for the late Mohbad might be swayed by such gestures and forget past grievances.
He further stated that Naira Marley and Sam Larry are aware that it is easy to win the affection of Nigerians through monetary means.
“Naira Marley and Sam Larry giving food to people on the street is the first step, the next step is doing giveaway on the internet, and everybody will move on. Same people who have been dragging them will drop their account details to win. They know you people are easy to get with money”.
