The concert was held on Saturday, and put together by Play Network Africa, Traffic Bar, El’Carnival and sponsored by Glenfiddich, had the ticket sold by Nairabox and Ariiya.

However, series of videos circulating on the social media shows that Naira Marley’s event failed to conform to the planned arrangement after fans turned up en mass.

In the videos, many Nigerians could be seen within close proximity of one another, without face masks, as others took to the forefront after the singer came on stage, hence defying social distancing.

This is not the first time Naira Marley would be caught in large crowd violating social distancing order during the coronavirus pandemic.

Marley had before now been indicted in Lagos for the same offence when he showed up at a party hosted by Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele in honour of her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, also known as JJC Skillz, who was celebrating his birthday.
