Popular Nigerian singer Naira Marley has promised to gift the sum of one million naira, 1,000,000 to an elderly man who he described as a Marlian for singing his song verbatim.
Nollywood actor, Jude Chukwuka, got the attention of Naira Marley and a ‘token’ of N1 million for miming ‘Mafo,’ one of his hit songs featuring Young John.
Chukwuka had shared a short video of himself singing along with Naira Marley on his Instagram page on Friday, July 3, with his 42000 followers. The video, which garnered 982 comments and over 81000 likes, impressed the Marlian president, who promised to give Chukwuka the sum of N1 million for singing along.
On Sunday, July 5, Naira Marley took to his Twitter account to request for Chukwuka’s contact, so he will be rewarded handsomely.
