Believe It or Not, EFCC just made Naira Marley and Zlatan Future Legends – Ayo Shonaiya

Nigerian movie producer, legal counselor and amusement expert, Ayo Shonaiya has responded to the progressing Yahoo adventure which has officially landed two rappers, Naira Marley and Zlatan in EFCC’s net regarding a supposed instance of web extortion and illegal tax avoidance.

As per Shonaiya, ‘when I saw the image posted today by EFCC about the “capture” of Naira Marley, Zlatan Ibile and different people, I had blended feelings. On one hand, I enjoyed it since this is “picture”. Much the same as world well known big names who have sooner or later in their lives (frequently amid their childhood) cross paths with the Law, and their mugshots become renowned, even to the point of individuals printing it on T-shirts’.

See his full post here:

Lil’ Wayne, James Brown, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Frank Sinatra, the Kray Twins, Hugh Grant, and of course notorious drug lord & the ultimate baddest outlaw, Pablo Escobar! Remember Pablo Escobar used drug money to “help” the Colombian economy? And loads of Colombians prayed for him. You know in the Nigerian music industry we have Bad, Baddo, Baddest, & Young Pablo. I myself even appeared in a short film recently called “Narcos Lagos”!

It’s all creativity and Art. Believe it or not, they have just made Naira Marley & Zlatan future legends!!! And I promise you I love all these guys. The ones that know me personally know this. Bad ass creative minds!

But, on the other hand, the infamous mugshots of the other “legends” were for what I call “personal” crimes. Even though every crime is bad, they were not crimes that labelled their countrymen & women with a negative identity, & also didn’t adversely affect the reputations of millions of their fellow citizens (maybe Colombia with the drugs, but you get my point).

The crime in question in the EFCC pic is FRAUD! Let’s stop saying “Yahoo Yahoo” because it has obviously become cool to a lot of youths now. We desperately need to re-strategise the war against crime in our country, from the “top” to the bottom.

So, while the other mugshots are for personal crimes that only themselves got punished for, our own future legends pic is about glamourising a crime that 180 MILLION Nigerians pay for everyday, in all ramifications & all over the world, as we are ALL seen as fraudsters and thieves.

This is the painful difference between the other infamous pictures & our own. And this is why, on the real, I am also sad about this picture.

    In this awesome design of things you’ll get an A just for effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually misplaced us ended up being in your facts. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more true right here. Having said that, allow me say to you what did work. Your text is definitely rather powerful and that is most likely the reason why I am making an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can certainly see the leaps in logic you make, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you appear to connect the details which in turn produce your final result. For the moment I will subscribe to your position however hope in the near future you connect the facts better.
