A new performer has been added to Naira Marley’s Marlian Records label.
Naira Marley’s Marlian movement will grow in popularity as it connected with young Nigerians across the nation after dominating the Afrobeats mainstream in 2019.
New talent has been added to Naira Marley’s record label, he has announced. He shared this information on his social media accounts yesterday.
Vusic, the signee, can be seen singing along to what is probably going to be his first single in the video that Naira Marley posted.
“Remember way back then dem dey laugh my history, now I don clear browser and if u wanna know how I came this far, you go need browse am”

In an effort to build on the success of its previous performers, Vusic will be appearing on the Marlian Records album alongside Naira Marley and street-pop phenomenon Zinoleesky.
The signing of Vusic follows the departure of Mohbad from Marlian Music. Having accused Marlian Music and Naira Marley of assault, Mohbad had bad blood with the record company and had departed on bad terms. In addition, he claimed that despite achieving some big singles and being signed, the label had not given him any royalties.
With the signing of a new artist, Mohbad would be trying to continue to exercise his influence on the Nigerian street music scene notwithstanding Naira Marley’s denial of Mohbad’s claim. He seemed to have put that incident behind him.
