Naira Marley is once again trending on social media for his newly Afrobeats released song ‘Soapy’. The controversial musician, who was recently released from the EFCC custody has received a lot of backlash from Nigerians for singing a song deemed to be ‘inappropriate and IQ receding’.
The video features Naira Marley introducing a new dance step. The singer has claimed that ‘Soapy’ tells the story of his time behind bars and how he survived in jail, but Nigerians, who are not having it insisted that his songs have always glorified crimes and sexual indecency.
However, some others have supported him.
Read their reactions below:
Like Medical practitioners, Musicians too should undergo some brain/talent assessment exercise and if found qualified, should be granted licence to sing. “Jó soapy… I want to jó soapy”. Wtf is that Naira Marley?. IQ receding song. Tueh!! pic.twitter.com/4fAQO5CmAx

From glorifying Yahoo Yahoo and Drugs. Naira Marley has now moved on to glorifying masturbation with his new song. And that is somebody’s role model. I feel sorry for y’all. SHAME!

I’m not surprised about Naira Marley’s new song or dance- which really looks like the display of a moronic earthworm when salt is poured on it.
The chap has been very consistent in proving he has nothing upstairs whatsoever. Surprised?
I’m disappointed that you are surprised.
