Naira Marley, Nigerian singer, has broken his silence on the cancellation of his Valentine’s Day concert that was to hold in Cameroon last Sunday.
On Monday, there were claims that some Cameroonian musicians made a case against the ‘Koleyewon’ crooner to ensure the show was unsuccessful after venues were changed thrice.
It was also gathered that those who sought the show’s cancellation had claimed the singer was a bad influence on the youth.
Reacting to the development on his Twitter page, Marley called on his fans and the media not to write Cameroon off even if they are a few bad eggs in the central African country.
Blogs please calm down, don’t paint Cameroon bad. They are actually very good and caring people. They actually love Nigerians, it’s just a few of them hating but no love lost, we’re still family. 1 love,” he wrote.
The 29-year-old controversial musician had earlier apologised to his Cameroonian fans while also disclosing that the show could not hold “due to obvious reasons.”
“I am live and direct in Cameroon but I am going to apologise firstly that the show is not happening today, it has been postponed for obvious reasons,” Marley had said.
“I am here, it is lit and I am having fun; the food is nice and I like the view. We are going to do this bigger and better very soon. The promoters tried their best but for obvious reasons, it cannot happen.”
