The ‘Tesumole’ crooner, who is fasting, took to his Twitter account and shared some quotes from the Quran to make his point.

Naira Marley and his close associate, Sam Larry have come under serious criticism in recent months and his music is said to have been black-listed owing to allegations of his involvement in his former signee, Mohbad’s death.

“Do not follow what you have no ‘sure’ knowledge of. Indeed, all will be called to account for ‘their’ hearing, sight, and intellect. Quran 17:36

And do not walk on the earth arrogantly. Surely you can neither crack the earth nor stretch to the height of the mountains. Quran 17:37”.
