Recall that EFCC had on Friday explained why it arrested Naira Marley, real name Afeez Fashola and Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael aka Zlatan.
Reacting to their arrest, Jahbless in a post on his Instagram page, urged the government to prosecute Marley and Zlatan if they are found guilty of being ‘Yahoo boys’
However, he noted that if both artists are found to be innocent, the case will be an issue to the rights of creative minds in Nigerians.
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 the same way you’ve been doing, Nigeria would be a better place.
“However, if these 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 “am I a Yahoo boy” 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 music about guns and drugs if the governments are quick to pick them up to people like Rick Ross or JayZ should have a duplex in a penitentiary, because they sing about crime doesn’t 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 and make sure this whole process is for the right course, if these guys end up being innocent then our creative rights are in trouble. Meanwhile “Am I a Yahoo boy” has 300k views in 24 hours not bad publicity after all. Peace”
