The past year was absolutely amazing for Azeez Fashola better known by his stage name Naira Marley. The ‘Soapy‘ crooner was at least among the top two hottest Nigerian acts for 2019.

What do we say? You better watch out for Naira Marley. With the launch of his record label, a trending tune ‘Tesumole‘ we think he is off on a good start. In 2020 we watch out how he continues to build his legend this year.
