Controversial Nigerian musician, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley has blasted the chief executive of Executive Jets Services Limited, Dr Sam Iwuajoku for describing him and his crew as useless people.
He claimed that the pilot that flew him and his crew in a private jet to Abuja is a big fan of his music.
In a series of tweets, he said, “They asked for our names on the jet though and your pilot is a Marlian and everybody there is a Marlian too.
He proceeded to punch some holes in the claim of Dr Iwuajoku who claimed he thought his aircraft was flying the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola.
“My name is Azeez Adeshina Fashola and my little brothers name is Moshood Babatunde Fashola and you were begging me to tag you all,” he said as he mocked the chief executive and his company.
He then proceeded to state that his fans who refer to themselves as Marlians won’t travel with the airline no more.
“Do you know that over 20,000 Marlians travel with Executive Jet every month? We won’t be using your useless airline again for calling us useless.
“Thank God we didn’t crash on that flight because we nearly did,” he wrote before adding that, “We didn’t book the flight ourselves”.
He then went on to post a video from the show at the Jabi Lake Mall to spite the airline and its owner.

The venue where the show held in Abuja has been shut down for flouting the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 guidelines on social distancing and social gathering.
A letter by Dr Iwuajoku to the Aviation Minister had leaked on social media on Tuesday. In the letter he explained that he didn’t know that the Babatunde Fashola on the flight was not the Minister of Works.
