I Switched Off My Phone After Winning N1m From Naira Marley - Jude Chukwuka


Jude Chukwuka, 56-year-old actor who was rewarded with N1milliom by Naira Marley for singing his song "Mafo" word for word revealed he had to turn off his phone after Naira Marley promised him the reward.

Explaining how it all happened in recent interviews with Sunday Scoop, Jude who is known for his role in 2018 movie "Delivery" Boy stated that he received more than 500 calls and had to switch off his device.


He said;

I enjoy singing and in recent times, Naira Marley has become my favourite artiste. It’s like I help my contemporaries to hear and understand what these young boys are doing. I don’t know why the video of Mafo that I posted went viral. I had actually wanted to do another song but I changed my mind and that one went viral. I didn’t know it was going to spark such an interest globally and I’m glad it did. I cannot say how long it took me to learn the lines because I must have heard the song over a hundred times. Every time I heard it, I picked one or two lines and in a short while, I started to sing along.

On his reaction after being told that Naira Marley was searching for him he said;

I really cannot explain how I felt when I was told that Naira Marley was looking for me online. I got over 500 calls. When I eventually answered a colleague’s call, he told me to go on Instagram that Naira Marley was looking for me. I then went online and saw so many messages. I didn’t even know how to feel at first. But to keep my sanity, I switched off my phone, so no one could reach me till I got home.
