Metropolis Music presents Naira Marley
- Naira Marley
Lagos-born-Peckham-bred, Naira Marley – a key pioneer in the UK AfroBashment scene will perform at Corsica Studios on Thursday 13 September.
Since first bursting onto the scene with 2014 party anthem ‘Marry Juana’, Naira has created a string of records fusing his inimitable Lagos accent with infectious beats, encapsulating the melting pot of London. This year saw him breaking through on a global scale with the football anthem ‘Issa Goal’ – adopted by Nigeria’s World Cup squad as their official soundtrack, the track was picked up by Coke to use as their World Cup song, and featured prominently in BBC coverage of the competition.
A flamboyant, magnetic character, and something of an urban myth, Naira Marley is the kind of artist who constantly pushes his sound forward. Now he’s back with a one-two punch of tracks that encapsulate London’s sound at its finest – global in outlook, and shot through with South London street swagger.
With this debut London headline show confirmed for 13th September at Corsica Studios, Naira Marley looks like he’s just getting started.
