With the signing of some of the best and most promising musical stars, Naira Marley’s Marlian Records has over the years revealed itself to be nothing more than a “cruise label” in disguise.
Naira Marley announced the debut of his label on December 30, 2019, during the Marlian Fest, with the automatic signing of 4 acts: Zinoleesky, Mobhad, Fabian Blu, and C Black.
Despite this, Zinoleesky has shown he has what it takes to compete for the top spots in the Nigerian music industry by releasing hit after hit and fiercely competing for the “Next-Rated” award, which he ultimately lost to Buju. A prize that his employer Naira Marley didn’t get any credit for.
Because Zinoleesky evidently isn’t receiving the proper vibe to help him become greater than he already is, his potential keeps being constrained in his label.
It is obvious that Marlian Records is just a smokescreen for smokers looking to be in style when you look at the organization, from the boss to the entire unbeatable squad.
The Marlian Fest, which has Naira Marley as the headlining act and label boss, as well as all the other artists on the roster and various affiliates, has also lost its relevance from when it first began.
Less than 500 people attended the Marlian Fest in the past two years, which began with over 4000 people at the Eko Convention center in Lagos.
Due to the over 5-hour show delay in the last edition, many attendees left the stadium before the performance even began.
Only an hour would be left for Zinoleesky to perform for his admirers and have another opportunity to show the world who he is in a different realm.
A label that never wants to improve and would rather seek affiliation with artists who perform at worldwide events.
The manager announced his intention to hold his Marlian Fest in 2021 at the SSE Arena Wembley in London, but the event was cancelled.
Let’s cut the chase guys.
Would Zinoleesky Have Performed Better Had He Been Signed to Olamide’s YBNL Label, Do You Think?
Do you believe Zinoleesky himself is content having his name on the Marlian Record?
