Singing about crime doesn’t make you a criminal – Singer Jahbless reacts to Naira Marley, Zlatan arrest

Veteran Nigerian singer, Jahbless has stated that singing about crime doesn’t make one a criminal while reacting to Naira Marley and Zlatan Ibile’s arrest by the EFCC.

In his post addressed to Ruggedman who expressed his happiness to see the arrest,  Jahbless noted that Nigeria would be a better place if other artistes speak up on civil rights, the way the veteran rapper has been doing in recent times. 

However making reference to American rappers; Jay-Z and Rick Ross, who sing about crime, Jabless stressed that if Marley and Zlatan are in prison for their lyrics, then songs like ‘Yahooze, Maga’ should be investigated.

He wrote;

Dear @ruggedybaba , first of all I would like to thankyou on the civil right services, if all artiste could speak up same way you’ve been doing, Nigeria would be a better place. However, if this new acts are been arrested cos of there creative process then you might have been paddling to a wrong direction. The last time I checked there is freedom of speech in this country , if an ignorant 22 years old tweeted a wrong statement ..we can always put him on check , which you did regarding Naira Marley, but how about zlatan , he Is picked up for a tweet or a song “am I a Yahoo boy” you think is worth the energy and resource for the agency to pick them up because of there creative process? then songs like yahooze and Maga don pay and many more should be subjected to investigations

Even in the western world people make music about guns and drugs if the government are quick to pick them up people like Rick kross or JayZ should have a duplex in penitentiary, because they sing about crime doesnt make them criminal .. if @nairamarley and @zlatanibile are truly fraudsters , let the government takes its course and do there investigation, everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty

We all need to thread carefully, and make sure this whole process is for the right course , if this guys end up being innocent then our creative rights is in trouble . Meanwhile “Am I a Yahoo boy” has 300k views in 24 hours not a bad publicity after all…. Peace !!
