Nigerian musician, Azeez Fashola popularly known by his stage name, Naira Marley is currently occupying the top spot on Twitter trend list, for holding a concert in Abuja despite the ban on gatherings and events of more than 20 people in the country put in place by regime to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the country.
Many Nigerians have been arrested and charged to court for flouting the order including Nollywood star, Funke Akindele and her husband, Abdul Bello for hosting a house party.
The musician had on Saturday uploaded a video of him and his crew alighting from a chartered plane.
The concert by Marley had led to public criticism with many Nigerians calling for his arrest.
