Popular Nigerian singer, Naira Marley, has taken to social media to show off his latest tattoo in honour of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
While Britain and the world at large are currently mourning the death of the longest-reigning monarch, the Marlian President went a step further by tattooing her face on his arm.
Naira Marley, who was based in the UK before moving to Nigeria, shared a video of the tattoo on Instagram on Thursday, hours after the Queen was announced dead.
In the video, Naira audibly prayed for the late queen to rest in peace.
“Rest in peace ma,” he said.

Meanwhile, ex-presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has proposed that the University of Nigeria should be changed to Queen Elizabeth’s name to immortalize her.
Garba made this suggestion via his verified Twitter handle following the announcement of the passing of the Queen of England on Thursday, September 8.
Reacting to her death, Adamu Garba said that the only way the queen can be immortalized in Nigeria is by renaming the University of Nigeria to “Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria”.
Immortalizing Queen Elizabeth by renaming the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in her honor would’ve been an easier deal if I were communicating with our grandparents. Fortunately, they knew her worth. Age is a grace, & 7 decades on the Throne can only be the work of God and Grace.
Those of you that went to UNN, Nsukka, get ready to redo your CVs. Hopefully, your former school will be renamed to Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria. I congratulate you on this remarkable progress.” He wrote on Twitter.
