A former Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Badmus Dolapo, detailed how she faced harsh criticism after speaking out against Nigerian musician Naira Marley in light of the circumstances surrounding singer Mohbad’s murder.
Dolapo had blasted Naira Marley’s lifestyle and his comments on women’s bodies on her page in 2019.
Marley had tweeted that having a huge butt was preferable to earning a Master’s degree.
Dolapo has expressed her displeasure with people constantly mentioning her on social media in the wake of the controversy surrounding the death of Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad, a former signee to Marley’s label. She has stressed that the relevant authorities are currently conducting a thorough investigation into the case.
She wrote on her instagram page, “So much tags on me, I plead I’m [sic] left out of tagging, relevant authorities are on this matter. When I singlehandedly spoke up against this character and imminent danger it portrays, I was bashed both inside and out, a danger not curtailed will become ‘hydraheaded’, my heart is with the departed and everything that represents him.”
The former PRO had in 2019 responded to Marley in a post. She said, “So, is having a big body part now considered superior to having educational or vocational qualifications? I still can’t get over this! We need to restore sanity to our system and stop tolerating public nuisances. It’s mediocrity for anyone to applaud an obviously delinquent and unproductive dead duck hiding under the guise of making music, obnoxious music for that matter.
“My advice to the younger ones: let no one confuse you that having a good body part is great, but having educational or vocational qualifications is more important! In fact, it’s non-negotiable! Your body part cannot give you sustainable existence, only good educational or vocational qualifications will. Be guided! #saynotoharddrugs #harddrugdestroys.”
In a retaliatory post, Marley said, “This Instagram police wants to have sex with me, but she is really ugly.”
