Naira Marley is building a formidable powerhouse with his Marlian Music outfit, and it’s high time we all paid attention.
Is Naira Marley the hottest guy on the streets? Maybe, maybe not. What matters right now is that this guy is making moves. The same moves that have now taken him from street hitmaker to a don in the industry.
The day I heard Naira Marley had signed Zinoleesky and Mohbad after his Marlian Fest concert, I remember asking “why?” I was puzzled because I didn’t think Naira Marley needed to have a label. Definitely not at that time, I mean.
Here’s a guy whose first arrival on the scene is way back in 2017. But he only just re-surfaced in 2019 to dominate the streets with his vibe and all of his controversial activities.
Yet to drop his debut album, all he’s got is a handful of hits, an EP, and a glorified performance at Wizkid‘s concert in London. Why then is this guy signing other artists? Is he going to be a good manager? Does he have the resources? The questions are endless.
But as time went on, it started to make sense. First with Zinoleesky, who last year released his debut project, an EP named “Chrome.”
With two mainstream hits, Zinoleesky‘s Next Rated nod earlier this year was well deserved, and somehow we know he couldn’t have done it without the Naira Marley push.
Then there’s Mohbad, a regular rapper turned hitmaker. After his “Imole” EP shot him to stardom and put him on the ranks beside guys like Bella Shmurda, it was obvious that these Marlian guys have not come to play.
Last December, he made “Ko Por Ke” with Naira Marley‘s producer, Rexxie and it became the heat of the moment.
It is only a matter of time before Lyta follows with his own project. And we all know when that happens, it’s going to bring some more heat to the house.
Thing is, Naira Marley might decide to drop an album this year. Or he might not.
But with his roster, this current momentum, and how much talent he currently has under his imprint, Marlian Music has proven itself to be one of the most quality labels in Nigeria currently.
