“So many singers are jealous that ®nairamarley is Fela personified, if not for @funkejenifaakindele prayers, #NairaMarley would have been selling #Tomato under bridge at Oshodi. @funkejenifaakindele is not just a colleague in #Nollywood, Villiwhen it comes to prayers, she is very strong.
“Honestly, the envy and jealousy in the Nigerian #music industry is too much, just because #Marlians all over #Africa treat Naira Marley as the spiritual baba #fela and #dance to his legendary #songs, there is so much bitterness in the industry, honestly, if not for the prayers of this Nollywood legend, do you think Naira Marley will still be doing music?”
The 29-year-old singer, Naira Marley is known as the President of his controversial fan base ‘Marlians’.
