Nigerian singer Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley has been verified on Twitter.
Getting the verification badge on social media platforms does not come easy. Although one has to apply for it, it could take many weeks for a person to be verified.
The verification badge is important for brands, celebrities, and individuals who are well-known to show that their accounts are authentic. It is also to set these people apart from frauds.
A few days after Naira Marley got back his Twitter account from a hacker, he has been verified, to the amazement of fans and followers.
While some people called his bluff, asking what he would do if he was not verified by the day he gave, others told him to be patient as verification won’t take place until April.
Surprisingly, 19 hours after his tweet, the Tesumole crooner was verified as the blue tick was found beside his name.
