While congratulations poured in for the singer, a few others are expressing how his success may lead to a wave of issues as it concerns social rectitude. Stressing the controversies that follows the singer, his ‘No Moral’ standard and the idea that his fans are expected to live recklessly and mannerless, some have shared that this progress for the singer, may be disastrous for the society.
Naira Marley in all his nonsense and civil disturbances has bought his 5th house in Lekki, but when a student graduates with 1st class, they will give them wooden plaques and 100k. Social rectitude and decent character will be a serious struggle for young people in the future. pic.twitter.com/LBDRff6Bqo

Last year Naira Marley used 'Soapy' to make me forget my principles. Now he's done it again🙄😆
The ultimate anti-hero, this guy…

A few others pointed out that Naira Marley has leveraged on his digital sales to get to the point where he can afford to buy houses even owning up to five of them as they shared that there may not be anything shady about the singer.
Yeah. People totally underrate digital monetization a lot. Almost throughout the latter half of 2019, Naira Marley, Zlatan and other Zanku-related artistes were at the upper echelon of African music exports. Transcribe that to digital monetization and boom, thousands of dollars. https://t.co/jSfEidw1kY

While the singer was charged for fraud, with bail granted at 2 million Naira, he is also set to revisit the courtroom at a later date in October. Marley’s new property acquisition could also be a fresh motive for anti-corruption agency EFCC to begin another media witch hunt, or strengthen the preexisting case against him.
