Popular Nigerian singer, Naira Marley has once again broken the social distancing rule occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic to host a crowded drive-in concert in Jabi Lake Mall, Abuja.

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.

As a drive-in concert, fans were expected to remain in their vehicles at a predetermined distance while watching the concert which also had former Big Brother Naija housemate, Kim Oprah, as the host the show.

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.

The Lagos State Government has since withdrawn the case against Naira Marley and others who were at the birthday party in the house of the Bellos in Lagos.

This was, however, not before the Bellos were sentenced by the court to community service and fined N100,000 for defying social distancing order.

Meanwhile, the concert by Marley has raised eyebrows on Twitter as Nigerians question authorities for allowing such crowd despite increasing cases of coronavirus in the country.
