Naira Marley’s Lamba Is Gradually Fading

When burst onto the scene with his controversial single, Am I A Yahoo Boy, we all saw him as just another street-pop artist similar to  were high at that time or .

After he got out of prison, his sound started to relate and connect. Cojoined with storytelling detailed about different spheres of life, his sound began to make cool street vibes.

Premier, it was the viral Soapy with its corresponding dance trend told about life in prison and now prisoners coped with urges. Then, the enthralling melodies he and  cooked up on Mafo. That was the sound. That was when it clicked. His self styled sound.

You feel  is slowly slipping. The stardom and influence he once wielded seems to have faded. Aye has struggled to gain numbers, with its numbers on far off from the 1million views mark.

His recent sonic offering, Dido Lobo is even wild and you’ll recognize the same call and response pattern, and to be honest, this song will struggle not necessarily because of the vulgarity and the fact that it’s not radio-friendly, but it’s not what the space needs right now at a period where vibes are low.
