Naira Marley initially rose on the U.K. scene with “marry Juana” in 2014, a lilting mid year bop utilizing sharp pleasantry to extoll the excellencies of weed. From that point forward, he’s put out a constant flow of tunes straddling both London and Lagos.
His most recent single, the delightfully glad “Issa Goal,” has brought forth a huge number of recordings of fans doing the shaku. The track highlights visitor verses from Nigerian stars Lil Kesh and Olamide, and is something of an authority informal hymn for Nigeria’s soccer group as it gets ready to contend in this current summer’s World Cup. Its video is a wonderful, green-and-white festival in the city of Lagos.
