I Was Criticised When I Spoke Against Naira Marley – Ex-Lagos PPRO
By Agnes Okoh
Former Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Badmus Opetodolapo, has recalled how she once received heavy criticism after speaking up against the lifestyle of singer, Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley.
The police officer, who was known for her active presence on social media, had in 2019 taken to her account to condemn Naira Marley’s lifestyle and a post he made concerning women’s bodies.
Opetodolapo stated that she was slammed both inside and out when she stood up for herself against the character he depicts, the impending threat it represents, and a threat that will undoubtedly become hydra-headed if it is not contained.
“So much tags on me. I plead I’m left out of tagging. Relevant authorities are on this matter. When I single-handedly spoke up against this character and the imminent danger it portrays, I was bashed both inside and out. A danger not curtailed will become hydra-headed. My heart is with the departed and everything that represents him.”
Naira Marley had, in a tweet, said, “Having a big booty is better than having a master’s degree.”
In response, Badmus wrote: “So, having a big body part is now better than having Educational or vocational qualifications? I still can’t get over this! We need to restore sanity to our system and stop tolerating public nuisance. It’s mediocracy for anyone to applaud an obviously delinquent and unproductive dead duck hiding under the guise of making music, obnoxious music for that matter.
“My advice to younger ones: let no one confuse you that having a good body part is great but to have educational or vocational qualifications is more important! In fact, it’s non-negotiable! Your body part cannot give you a sustainable existence only good educational or vocational qualifications will do. Be guided! #saynotoharddrugs #harddrugdestroys.”
Firing back at her, Naira Marley, the owner of Marlian Music on which the late Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, aka Mohbad, was signed, wrote, “This Instagram police want to have sex with me but she is really ugly.”
Mohbad, who had called out Naira Marley for threatening his life, died on Tuesday, controversially.
After Mohbad’s death, Naira Marley and his associate, Samsom Erinfolami Balogun, aka Sam Larry, came under heavy fire after a series of documents and videos of the duo subjecting the late singer to relentless bullying for leaving Marlians Record surfaced on the internet.
