But prior to this time, Naira Marley was an underground act in England, London to be precise.
Recently Naira Marley, real names Azeez Fashola was picked up by Nigerian anti-graft agency, EFCC. He was picked up in connection to fraud crimes and money laundering alongside a already blown street rapper, Zlatan Ibile.
In the early hours of May 10 which was his birthday and a day after releasing his smash hit song, “Am I A Yahoo Boy”, the news of Marley’s arrest spread like wildfire, in no time he was trending on Twitter.
