New Album GOD’s TIMING’s THE BEST, Walking the line between Afrobeats and hip-hop while dropping a slew of hit records, Naira Marley is one of Nigeria’s biggest stars.
Today May 30, 2022, Naira Marley releases his highly anticipated debut album titled “God’s Timing’s The Best” (GTTB) to celebrate Marlians’ Day. This new project serves as a follow up to his first mini project- ‘Lord Of Lamba’ (LOL).
Naira Marley, whose artist name was inspired by Nigeria’s official currency (naira) and reggae legend Bob Marley, burst onto the scene in 2014 with the cheekily titled “Marry Juana.” His 2017 hit single “Issa Goal” spawned a viral dance craze and became the unofficial theme song of Nigeria’s national soccer team during the run-up to the 2018 World Cup.
Although 2019’s controversial “Am I A Yahoo Boy” attracted the ire of the Nigerian government, the track landed him on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart for the first time. An ode to self-pleasure inspired by his own brief incarceration, his 2019 hit single “Soapy” gave rise to another viral dance trend.
In 2020, he picked up four nominations for The Headies (Nigeria’s biggest music awards show), including a Song of the Year nod for “Mafo,” his collaborative 2019 single with Young John.
Finally after his mega breakthrough Naira Marley decided to bless his home-based fans with a body of work titled “LOL” EP. ‘LOL’ according to Naira stands for ‘Lord Of Lamba‘ and the EP consists of 6 banging tracks.
His debut album, God’s Timing’s The Best consist of 14 tracks and house Naira Marley previously released hit singles; ‘Coming‘, ‘Kojosese‘, ‘First Time In America‘ and ‘O’dun‘.
