Nairamarley was incarcerated briefly following fraud and money laundering charges. He was in jail for over a month until his bail was met; he is out on bail and he is expected to be back in court soon to face charges relating to financial fraud.
While in jail, he met people who complained of being unfairly treated by the Nigeria government and he promised to help them out.
“I have to help a lot of n*ggas in jail. I met one guy, he has been in jail for 9 years but never been to court. As in, they haven’t even found him guilty yet. What if he is not even guilty?” Nairamarley wrote 2 days after he left jail.
“I met another n*gga in jail, he’s been in jail for over 2 years because he is in a relationship with one rich woman’s daughter and the woman locked him up for not leaving her daughter”, he added.
Lastly, he said, ” I can’t change Nigeria, but together we can”. Nairamarley vows to help other prisoners but he is still facing charges that can send him to jail for over 5 years if convicted.
