After days of silence, popular Nigerian singer, Timaya, Aka Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, has expressed his thoughts on the trending case of Naira Marley and the EFCC.
In an Instagram Video, Timaya compared Naira Marley’s case to that of late Dagrin.
He said: ”If i die don’t cry for me.. That was what Dagrin sang, then he died and .. I’m just thinking about this my brother, Naira Marley. In that I’m i a Yahoo boy video, no disprect to anyone oh, he was arrested and the next day in real world got arrested. I think it is about what we say. We should watch what we say to ourselves. Our tongue has powers. The kind of words we use, what we say…”
