Naira Marley Biography
Naira Marley is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He was born in the Agege area of Lagos, Nigeria, and has several siblings.
At 11, the songster moved to Peckham in the United Kingdom, where he graduated with a distinction in business (Peckham Academy). He has since acquired British citizenship.
Growing up, Naira Marley reportedly wanted to be a voice-over artist or a master of ceremonies. But he developed a strong passion for music along the line. Encouraged by those who had listened to him sing, he decided to face the music – a decision he has no regret over.
The singer has released several songs since then, most of them controversial.
In 2019, he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over suspicion. He was charged to court and released on bail. He thereafter released a song titled “Am I A Yahoo Boy.” Several other songs have followed, of course.

Naira Marley’s real – or legal name – is Azeez Adeshina Fashola
Marlian is the name of Naira Marley’s fan base – a massive, boisterous collective. It is usually said that a true Marlian never graduates but drops out of the university halfway. Apparently that’s only a joke among the collective, as there are graduates among its members.
The Marlian nation does not only encapsulate fans of the controversial singer but other celebs who share the singer’s ideology or openly admire him.
Just recently, the South African singer Busiswa identified as a Marlian during her trip to Lagos, taking a picture with Naira Marley and label signee Zinoleesky to accentuate her new association.
Naira Marley was born and raised in Agege, located in Lagos, Nigeria. He and his siblings were raised as members of an extended family.
During the controversy following his arrest for fraud by the EFCC, Naira Marley revealed that he has two wives and four children. He, however, failed to give details about them – like their names and when he married them.
Interestingly, one of Naira Marley’s wives bore him two sons, and the other bore him two daughters.
Naira Marley’s daughters, Aishat and Simiat, are twins. They were born 21 April 2015.

Naira Marley’s Parents raised him and his siblings in an extended family.
Not much is known about Naira Marley’s mother. She was once spotted in court showing her support for her son during a case against him.
Naira Marley’s father is known as Mr. Fashola. He is not as famous as his son, so information about him is pretty scanty. He reportedly attended the court hearing in 2019 when his son was charged with fraud.
Naira Marley is the father of four children. He welcomed his first child at the age of 24. As mentioned earlier, the singer is involved with two women. One of them got pregnant with twins. She gave birth to two beautiful girls. Naira named the girls Aishat and Simiat Fashola. The girls were born in April 2015. As of December 2022, they are seven years old. The girls are so identical and beautiful that their father always shows them off on social media.
Shortly after the birth of his girls, his second partner took in and gave birth to his first son, Farouk Fashola. The boy is also called Jojomarlian. He was born in October 2015 and turned seven years old in October 2022. A few years later, she gave birth to the last child of the family Fawaz Fashola in April 2018. Some say that growing up in an extended family may have influenced Naira’s decision to have many kids from different women.
Naira Marley has two younger brothers. Their names are Babatunde Moshood Fashola, also known as Shoddy Funds, and Idris Fashola also called Marley Jr.
Naira Marley is one of the record label owners in the country. In 2019, during his performance at Marlian Fest, the songster paused halfway and announced the formation of a record label called Marlian Music.
At the time, he had said the label was for them (his fans), and any of them with talent could join the label.
Following the formation of the record label, he signed Zinoleesky, MohBad, Fabian Blu, and C-Blvck. Zinoleesky is reportedly no longer at Marlian Music. The songster had a stint with Davido’s DMW. He was kicked out of DMW over allegations he assaulted a lady.
