A white garment church pastor included Naira Marley in his sermon notes and message to the congregation while telling them Naira Marley is intelligent despite being a marijuana smoker.
He used the lyrics of Naira Marley’s song Aye to buttress his point while singing it to them. His words:
That boy only smokes weed but he is very intelligent.
He is very intelligent
Aye yi o le(This life is not hard)
Aye lo n maye le(It’s humans that make life hard)
Eyin le ma sin iya yin(You are the ones that will bury your mothers)
He them went on to ask ; ‘Wouldn’t you want to be the ones to bury your mothers?’
The congregation responded with a loud Yes, they would.
