YouTube Nigeria said that Naira Marley was the only Nigerian musician invited to the event because of his huge fan base, which is arguably the largest in Nigeria. It was also revealed that his soap is now the second most watched song in Africa and Nigeria, while the singer was in the top 10 most watched artists in the world and the most watched artist in Nigeria for the first time in 2019, according to a new study by the Nigerian Music Industry Association (NMI) and YouTube. Nigerian music industry, "NairsaMarley, 25, said in a statement from his management company Nairobi Entertainment.

Today, Marley is one of the hottest artists to dominate the mainstream music charts in Nigeria and the diaspora, as well as in Africa. 

His fan base continues to grow every day just because he's not free of trouble, but he's still one of the most popular artists in the world.

However, the singer recently caught the attention of Naira Marley herself, when she spoke about the plight of good-looking people in a tweet. The indigenous rap musician shared a post in which she wrote that people who look good are often the loneliest people, 'she shared. Remember that Marleley caused a furore on social media in 2014 when she tweeted a photo of a lady with a big bottom that was better than one with a master's degree.

The Nigerian music scene of late is saturated with talented music stars who are redefining space and creating their own sound. Nigeria's entertainment industry is certainly not a rose-tinted bed, but it seems to be thriving, given how people in it have been able to do great things.

One of those wave - Making Stars is Azeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, and he still seems like a pop sensation who has burst into our collective ears from nowhere. Suddenly, he stole the hearts and minds of millions of music fans in Nigeria and beyond, and burst into the country's music summer as a colossus.

Believe it or not, Marley is a singer you will hate, but he is also one of the most talented and talented musicians in Nigeria's music scene. 

The rapper is arguably the most popular artist in Nigeria today, and he seems to be doing something serious, rather than just a rave moment. His songs and dance moves have inspired morally humiliated youth to follow him, and youth would long be their supporters. 

It all began when Afrobeats artist Simi was punished for giving a scammer the nickname "Naira Marley" in a search engine. Sources: 0

Depending on who you speak to, "naira marley" is one of the most popular nicknames for cyberfraudsters in the world, and Nigeria has been unable to shed its reputation as an "internet scam" due to a lack of transparency and poor track record in online fraud. In an attempt to argue against the 'internet fraudster' who keeps the money in circulation, he wrote an Instagram post that read 'Know slavery - crime' and asked Nigerians to 'pray for him' instead of criticizing him. He has since been accused of reinforcing Nigeria's reputation as an "online fraudster," but he is not alone.
