Activist Deji Adeyanju has described musician, Naira Marley, as a nuisance to himself and the society.

Naira Marley had shared a video on Twitter on Wednesday of a man hitting a lady’s bum as he sings the musician’s song ‘Opotoyi’.


Commenting on the video on Thursday, Mr Adeyanju said Naira Marley, who is facing charges of fraud, was a nuisance.

“You are a nuisance to yourself and the society at large,” he wrote.

Naira Marley’s trial, however, was adjourned on Thursday at the Federal High Court in Lagos after counsels exchanged words over space to sit in the small courtroom.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo abruptly adjourned the trial till December 11 and 12, 2019.

Born Azeez Fashola, Naira Marley is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on an 11-count charge of conspiracy, possession of counterfeit cards and fraud.


His co-defendant is one Yad Isril, who is said to be at large.

The defendant was arraigned on May 20 before Justice Oweibo but pleaded not guilty.
