Naira Marley is saying he is not a yahoo boy while revealing he has 2 wives and 4 kids who are all British citizens.
The “Issa Goal” hit maker, who is currently in detention, granted an interview to PUNCH, where he stated that he is not a criminal and has no idea what the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission found on his laptop.
Naira Marley claims that apart from storing his songs and music videos, he had never done anything illegal with his laptop.
He said this in his statement on oath which he made while in EFCC custody. Read statement below:
“My name is Azeez Fashola. I am married to two wives and I have four kids. They are all British citizens staying in the United Kingdom. I studied in the United Kingdom, started studying at Porlock Hall, then I moved to Walworth School where I received my GCSE.
My results for my GCSE are English (C), Maths (B) and Science (C). I left Walworth School with my qualification and went further to study at Peckham Academy, where I got distinction in Business. Then, I went further to study at Crossways College where I finished my Business Law; but I had kids at that time, so I took a break and
started making music till date.”
I started making music in 2014 individually, but now I’m signed to Marathon, a United Kingdom-based record label. I had a deal with Coca-Cola for my song, Issa Goal, in which I featured Olamide and Lil Kesh. I also had deals with Nike to participate in the Nigerian sportswear.
I’m in possession of a MacBook laptop, which I borrowed from a friend named Yad Isril in England, because while returning to Nigeria, I knew I was going to need a laptop to upload my music videos on YouTube and also to keep my exclusive songs. I’m in possession of the laptop but I have no idea what is on it apart from my music videos.
He owns the butcher’s and an electronics shop in England. He is a British citizen, though his family is from Iraq. I don’t have a personal laptop at the moment because I don’t need it. My management team handles everything I need to do on the laptop. I only use my iPhone X for everything I do.”
