Naira Marley, Nigeria's Afrobaashment musical pioneer
Naira Marley has been called many things. Notwithstanding the above title he's also been known as the pioneer of AfroBaashment, a blend of Afrobeat – one of the dominant forms of pop on the African continent – with Jamaican reggae and dancehall influences. All of it filtered through the streets of Peckham, which is where this Nigerian-born artist found himself when his parents moved to the UK when he was 11 years old. If you're yet to be introduced to his particular brand of irie Afropop, there’s no time like the present to buy or sell Naira Marley tickets on StubHub.
Composing the unofficial Nigerian football anthem
Naira Marley burst onto the UK urban scene with his 2014 track, a breezy number called "Marry Juana", on which he collaborated with Max Twigz. It was a major global football event that really put him on the international music map, however, when he composed a song that inadvertently became the unofficial anthem for his home country's national team, the Nigerian Super Eagles. He tapped two of his long-time friends for this one, enlisting Olamide and Lil Kesh to create the song "Issa Goal". This wasn't the first time he'd worked with Olamide, one of Nigeria's biggest rap stars – the two of them had released "Ko Si Werey" a short while before, which had become a major hit, and had both played shows at Hammersmith Apollo. However, this was nothing compared to the success of the football anthem, which became the team's theme song as they competed in the competition that year, ensuring that it would go down in Nigerian sporting and music folklore for posterity.

Becoming the Lord of Lamba
Naira Marley went a few steps better in the late 2010s, and it was his 2019 release "LOL (Lord of Lamba)" that vastly increased his popularity. Lamba is the slang word in Marley's mother tongue of Yoruba that can mean either dancing or just general partying, and he used the album to deploy an arsenal of powerful Afrobeats. Four of the EP's six tracks were produced by Rexxie, a producer he's often worked with in the past. The EP also features collaborations with other local artists Mayorkun and Young Jonn. He's also worked recently with one of Nigeria's other superstars, Wizkid, who has himself had the distinction of having collaborated with US rap mega-star Drake.
