Ghanaian actor cum blogger, Uche Maduagwu has made a controversial comment in a new Instagram post that he shared online.
Uche, who had gained notoriety in recent times for some of his ‘boom’ speeches, said it was actually actress Funke Akindle who prayed for Naira Marley to fuel his success in the music industry. He further said a lot of artistes are jealous of the Soapy hitmaker because of the fact that he personifies Fela Kuti to the fullest.
His post reads;
SO MANY SINGERS ARE JEALOUS THAT NAIRA MARLEY IS FELA PERSONIFIED, IF NOT FOR FUNKE JENIFA AKINDELE’S PRAYERS, NAIRAMARLEY WOULD HAVE BEEN SELLING TOMATO UNDER THE BRIDGE OF OSHODI.
FUNKE JENIFA AKINDELE IS NOT JUST A COLLEAGUE IN NOLLYWOOD, WHEN IT COMES TO PRAYERS, SHE IS VERY STRONG.
HONESTLY, THE ENVY AND JEALOUSY IN THE NIGERIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY IS TOO MUCH, JUST BECAUSE MARLIANS ALL OVER AFRICA TREAT NAIRA MARLEY AS THE SPIRITUAL BABA FELA AND DANCE TO HIS LEGENDARY SONGS, THERE IS SO MUCH BITTERNESS IN THE INDUSTRY, HONESTLY, IF NOT FOR THE PRAYERS OF THIS NOLLYWOOD LEGEND, DO YOU THINK NAIRA MARLEY WILL STILL BE DOING MUSIC?
