Will Nigerians actually cancel Naira Marley?
In an exclusive chat with Legit.ng, Cool FM OAP, Gucci Augustus Aigbe, shed light on Nigerians cancelling Naira Marley and the ability of netizens to hold a grudge when necessary.
"Nigerians have cancelled Naira Marley already. In the space of 2-4 days his following on IG has drastically reduced, up to 900k people have unfollowed the Marlian maverick. The same man who gained such notoriety and following in 2019 after he has arrested alongside musician Zlatan and 4 others. 4 years after, A record label and a couple hits under his belt his notoriety has soared again. This time with a call for his head over his transgressions at Mohbad, but I wouldn’t hold my breath, if there is one thing Nigerians are supremely famous for, it is their fleeting memory."
Mohbad: Video of Naira Marley being picked up at Lagos airport sparks curiosity, “Why him hide face"
On how long Naira Marley will be cancelled for, Gucci says he's unsure Nigerians will remember to keep him cancelled despite the outrage. According to him, Nigerians are famous for their fleeting memory.
In his words:
"It wouldn’t surprise me if this all blows over in less than 3 months. A good example of this forgetfulness is how people have been shouting Misogyny and abuse as the hallmark of Pere (Big brother All stars) but have now kept him in the house till the final week. Naira Marley may not have directly being involved in the death of Mohbad, infact the autopsy results are yet to be seen. But his alleged involvement in threatening, beating and frustrating Mohbad to depression is what makes him this stories villian and for that he is liable. Is Naira Marley Cancelled, right now it seems so. The question though is, for how long?"
