He also note that if both artistes are found to be really innocent, the case will be an issue to the rights of creative minds in Nigerians.
He further set an instance using American Rappers, Rick Ross and Jay Z who always sing about crime saying that if Marley and Zlatan are in prison for their lyrics, then songs like ‘Yahooze, Maga’ should be investigated.
The artiste also applauded Ruggedman based on how he strongly speaks up against fraudsters in Nigerua, Adding that Nigeria would have been a better place if people speak like Ruggedman.
He also said that if the artiste were arrested because of their songs, then Ruggedman is also not on a good course.
Jahbless on his Instagram page wrote: “Dear Ruggedman, first of all I would like to thank you on the civil right services, if all artiste could speak up same way you’ve been doing, Nigeria would be a better place.
“However, if this new acts are being arrested because of there creative process then you might have been paddling to a wrong direction.
“The last time I checked there is freedom of speech in this country, if an ignorant 22 years old tweeted a wrong statement …we can always put him on check, which you did regarding Naira Marley, but how about Zlatan, he Is picked up for a tweet or a song “am I a Yahoo boy” you think is worth the energy and resource for the agency to pick them up because of there creative process? then songs like Yahooze and Maga Don Pay and many more should be subjected to investigations.
“Even in the western world people make music about guns and drugs if the governments are quick to pick them up people like Rick Ross or JayZ should have a duplex in penitentiary, because they sing about crime doesnt make them criminal
“If Naira Marley and Zlatan are truly fraudsters, let the government takes its course and do there investigation, everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty.
“We all need to thread carefully, and make sure this whole process is for the right course, if this guys end up being innocent then our creative rights is in trouble. Meanwhile “Am I a Yahoo boy” has 300k views in 24 hours not a bad publicity after all. Peace”
