The musician reacted via his verified Twitter handle @officialnairam1 after the news broke on Monday, December 16, 2019 and according to him, no matter how they try to stain his name, he remains the next president of Nigeria.

He tweeted:

Car theft?? 😂😂😂😂 maybe I need to post my Bentley, Porsche or benzo. If u lot like try stain my name from today till tomorrow I will still be the next president and who’s Adeyemi Fashola aka Naira Marley. Another free promo I’m guessing.

It didn’t end there as he went on to slam bloggers who did not confirm what transpired before jumping to conclusion.

Looool I’m still baffled, one bad belle paid bloggers to carry fake news because I’m sure the bloggers didn’t sit down to make that up themselves.

However, two of the musician’s brothers and his cousins appeared in court over the alleged theft of a car and a cell phone. This is coming, two months after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) retrieved damning evidence of fraud from Naira Marley’s iPhone and laptop.

Tajudeen had granted the three defendants; Idris Fashola, 18, Babatunde Fashola, 24; and Kunle Obere, 22, a N500,000 bail with two sureties in like sum after facing a four-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing, assault and obstructing the arrest of Naira Marley.
