Naira Marley is currently trending on twitter and it’s because he held a concert yesterday in Abuja.
The concert which is supposed to be a drive-in one was later turned into a ‘proper’ concert as his fans snubbed social distancing to dance to show off their dancing skills and have fun.
The singer flew into Abuja with former Big Brother Naija ‘Pepper Dem’ housemate, Kim Oprah who was billed to host the concert. See reactions of Nigerians below…
