Nigerian Singer, Jahbless, who sometime ago relocated to the United States, has shared his opinion on recent arrest of popular musicians; and by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

DAILY POST recalls that EFCC had on Friday explained why it arrested Naira Marley, real name Afeez Fashola and also confirmed the arrest of Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael aka Zlatan.

Reacting to their arrest, Jahbless in a post on his page, urged the government to persecute Marley and Zlatan if they are found guilty of being ‘ boys’

However, he noted that if both artistes are found to be innocent, the case will be an issue to the rights of creative minds in Nigerians.

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 also lauded Ruggedman for speaking up against fraudsters in , adding that Nigeria would have been a better place if everyone spoke up like Ruggedman.

He, however, noted that if Marley and others were arrested for their songs, then Ruggedman is not on a good course.

Jahbless on his Instagram page wrote: “Dear Ruggedman, first of all I would like to thank you 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 being arrested because 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 “” 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 about guns and drugs if the governments are quick to pick them up people like Rick Ross or JayZ should have a duplex in penitentiary, because they sing about crime doesnt make them criminal

“If Naira Marley and Zlatan 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 ” has 300k views in 24 hours not a bad publicity after all. Peace”

”I have read your honest feedback& suggestions& I sincerely apologize for addressing the youth as “Children” I did not mean to be insensitive with this, it was borne out of the magnitude of destruction&looting of businesses I witnessed when I went on a tour of my constituency

I saw women crying and my constituent members distraught as a result of the damages inflicted on their source of livelihood. I was moved by this while giving my submission on the floor of the House.

I allowed my emotions get the better of me and for this I apologize to everyone my earlier statements may have hurt.

Please, understand that even the best of us make mistakes. This is why, moving forward, I ask that we all try to engage constructively on the issues that affect all of us. I promise to do the same.

The pain that I feel for my constituents, the calls for assistance that I continue to get, and the need to mitigate against further destruction and violence will continue to drive my engagements and my work.

I thank you all for expressing your views, and in the future, I promise to be more conscious and aware. Together, we will build a better . End.”
