Veteran Nigerian singer, Daddy Showkey, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), to temper justice with mercy on arrested singer, Naira Marley, who was arrested last week.
While slamming the singer for disrespecting his elders in the music industry, he begged the commission not to use his mistake to spoil his career.
According to ‘Galala’ dancer, he didn’t initially react to the arrest and the purported involvement of Ruggedman in initiating the arrest because he cannot endorse a small child (Naira Marley) insulting an elder (Ruggedman), especially when the elder is right.
Admitting that in his younger years, he lived a dangerous life on the streets, Showkey explained that it does not mean he will advise his child or any young person to live the same way and make the same mistakes he made.
He also added that he believes Naira Marley made the disrespectful comments under the influence of a substance he smoked.
In his video that was uploaded on Instagram, Daddy Freeze also pleaded with the authorities to release Naira Marley and simply caution him so he can see his recent arrest as a lesson.
Sharing the video, he captioned it,
“Temper justice with mercy. This is just a young man growing up. Let’s not use his mistakes to spoil his career we all went through so many things growing up….we can use him as a spoke man to young people against crime @officialefccmay be he will learn with this.”
