He recently came out to admit that he wrote the apology letter addressed to the Minister of Aviation Hadi Sirika.
According to him, the indiscriminate movement of any form during the Coronavirus pandemic should not be condoned at all.
He added that those abusing him for calling Naira Marley useless should know that he does not care, because he is telling the truth.
His words, “Why will anyone be moving around unnecessarily during a pandemic? Moving around for musical concert at this time is ‘unnecessary movement’. I am wondering why they were not even arrested.
“I have been abused by people who said I referred to them as ‘useless people’ but I don’t care. If you see the truth, say it. Although I said so in anger, that is still my position today.”
