Two popular Nigerian rappers arrested with drug agency



Nigeria’s drug agency on Thursday arrested two popular singers and four others with illegal drugs in a morning attack on their apartment in the commercial hub of Lagos, an official said.

National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) spokeswoman Femi Babafemi told AFP how much cannabis and “Molly” – a term used for MDMA – were found with rappers Zinoleesky and Mohbad and four other suspects in their residence and car.

“Our workers raided the apartment in Idado estate in the early hours of today,” he said.

“Six suspects – four men and two women – were arrested. Some cannabis sativa and Molly were recovered from their apartment and car.

Babafemi said the suspects after investigation will be charged in court.

Mohbad and Zinoleesky are two popular rappers with hit songs in the country, and their music is exported across the continent and around the world.

Mohbad’s hit “Feel Good” has more than four million views on Youtube.

The two rappers were signed last year to the music label of renowned Nigerian rapper and Afropop star Naira Marley.

Marley, who even had a run-in with the law on suspected internet fraud, expressed his shame over the arrest of the two with a post on Instagram.
