“Most popular Nigerian artists are cultists” Solomon Buchi slams Naira Marley, others
Following the unfortunate and unforeseen demise of Nigerian singer Mohbad, conversations about the circumstances surrounding his passing have evolved in various directions.
Notably, writer and activist Solomon Buchi has recently entered the discourse, making assertive statements concerning the Nigerian music industry.
The controversy surrounding Mohbad’s demise was ignited by the emergence of a video depicting the late singer facing harassment from Sam Larry, an associate of Naira Marley. This video deeply unsettled many and triggered a surge of criticism and disapproval directed towards Naira Marley, a prominent figure within the Nigerian music sphere.
In response to this video and the series of recent events, Solomon Buchi expressed his thoughts with the following statement:
“I’ve been under the pages of books researching about Mohbad, his music boss, Naira Marley, and other parties that were involved in his life until his unfortunate demise.
This has reinforced my belief that the Nigerian music industry is a cesspool of cultism, gangsterism, diabolical politics, and abysmal moral volume.
“I listened to a very few of his songs and noticed the pain in his voice, the sonorous and sober tone, and his poignant lyrics that often expressed the difficulty of life. His music mirrored his deepest struggles, and hope to overcome them. It got me thinking about his story…”
“It got me thinking about the rot, evil, and darkness that exists in the realms of entertainment, and how we should be careful who we listen to. Naira Marley, Mohbad’s boss, was highly celebrated by young Nigerians. He was rewarded with clout – a young man with little morals.”
“Almost nothing to be exemplary of, Naira Marley rose to fame by subliminally endorsing fraud and other negative vices.
Marley has been arrested over 124 times in England and was once declared wanted. This is the man many of you, even Christians, revered as your president. You danced to his songs and labeled yourselves Marians: a terrible and lousy group of youngsters I assumed were stark irresponsible. The older generation warned us, sharply criticized Marley’s stardom and his possible influence on youngsters, but our generation is always right.”
“Now, he’s roped in this situation, with strong and believable allegations of Mohbad’s death on him. Just yesterday, I decided to peep his Instagram page, and was appalled – it was filled with random videos of women’s bum, degeneracy and everything unworthy of emulation.”
“And most of our youngsters listened and praised him until just before Mohbad’s death.
Marley is only the popular example here, but generally, the Nigerian music industry is a game of dirty power, gang rivalry, and shady deals.”
“Most popular Nigerian musicians are cultists.
Through their music videos, dressing, lingo, and fraternal phrases, they are easy to identify. And what do they do? Of course, they don’t kill mosquitoes or keep peace-it’s a cycle of chaos.”
“It seems that some of you love the feel of thuggery in their music, when the reality of it, is dangerous. I will not be caught donating my time, social media like button and money to an enterprise that is built on the tentacles of thuggery, immorality and evil. RIP Mohbad.”
