Naira Marley was Born 31 Years Ago in Lagos State

Azeez Fashola, commonly known as Naira Marley, is a 31-year-old Nigerian singer, composer, and record producer whose melodies and musical fusion have mesmerized listeners. He was born to Mr. and Mrs. Fashola on May 10, 1991, and is from Lagos State in southwest Nigeria. His parents have other children as well; Marley has several siblings. He is a polygamous man who has two wives and four beautiful children (two boys and two girls), all of whom are British nationals and all of whom live in that country.

Naira Marly, then 11, relocated to Peckham in South London, England. He spent the majority of his childhood here. His General Certificate of Secondary Education was earned at Walworth School in the United Kingdom after he attended Porlock Hall (GCSE). Later, he attended Peckham Academy and graduated with a Distinction in Business. His desire to learn led him to enroll at Crossways College (now Christ the Sixth Form College), where he earned a degree in business law. It’s ironic that the “las las school na scam crooner is a well-educated fellow,” yet it makes sense considering that you need a degree from a tertiary institution to be a senior Marlian.

He Began His Music Career in 2014

Naira Marley always dreamed of becoming a voice actor and master of ceremonies (MC) because of his intense love of music as a child. He oversaw the rap careers of his MC friends while they were students at Peckham Academy. He realized his love and skill for music as he carried out his administrative responsibilities. His buddies were aware of his potential because when they had a song to write, there was always room for another singer. His companions pushed him to step in, and when he did, it marked the start of other recordings.

In 2015, he published his first EP, “Gotta Dance,” and he started to build up a respectable fan base. Naira Marley worked with Olamide and Lil Kesh to create “Issa Goal,” which was released in December 2018. During the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Super Eagles (Nigeria’s male national football team) adopted the song as their official anthem. On June 16, 2018, he released the remix to Issa Goal, which features Falz, Simi, Slimcase, Lil Kesh, and Olamide. He continued to sing. By this time, his name was well-known throughout the music world.

Further singles by Naira Marley include “Am I a Yahoo Boy” (a song that landed him in jail) and the massive “Soapy” (which topped the Nigerian charts for 10 weeks). He released “Lord of Lamba,” his second EP, in 2019. His musical career has skyrocketed to the point where he has a devoted following known as “Marlians.” He has a record company called Marlian Records and has signed some up-and-coming musicians to it.
