Popular music executive and estranged husband of singer, Tiwa Savage, Tunji Balogun, aka Teebillz, has urged Nigerians not to cancel rapper, Naira Marley.
Naijaloaded recalls that Naira Marley has been under heavy fire after he was accused of having a hand in the sudden death of his former signee, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, aka Mohbad.
Despite denying the allegations, songs by the Marlian Music boss and his record label artists have been taken off the playlists of many Nigerian media houses.
Reacting via his Instagram page, Teebillz said Naira Marley is “too young and talented to be thrown under the bus of cancel culture”.
He said Naira Marley believed and invested in Mohbad’s music career when “none of the after death advocates of love” did.
“[Naira Marley is] Too young too talented to throw under the bus of cancel culture! One of the best writers of the new age! Guilty by association is not a deliberate crime to me……. I pray ppl forgives Naira Marley off his shortcomings and I hope God gives him a 2nd chance to attain his blessings as a bonified leader and influencer! Just yesterday when everyone and their mama was a glorified Marlian…… Naira believed and invested in Imole’s talent when none of the after death advocates of love did….!!! May our creator bless us where we lack knowledge and wisdom! (sic
