The Soapy crooner who is known for his racy songs which more often than not, glorify cybercrimes, has grown to be very influential in Nigeria.
However, not very many people know about his personal life as a father. Marley is blessed with four children from two women, who are all British citizens.

His first son Farouq Fashola aka Jojo Marlian shares a striking resemblance with him.
Jojo recently turned 4 and his father took to his social media page to share rare photos of him, expressing his undying love and wishing him a happy birthday celebration.
There is no doubt Naira Marley has managed to bring so many people under the influence of his music in the past year.
It is also interesting to note that even celebrity figures like Wizkid, Toke Makinwa, Sarz, Davido, Tiwa Savage, etc have occasionally taken to social media to declare their status as ‘Marlians’. Among those that have openly declared themselves as a fan of the rap star is Burna Boy’s British girlfriend Stefflon Don.
In a recent post, she reaffirmed her status as a Marlian and not just a one-timer. Don tweeted the title of hit single Tesumole off Naira Marley’s latest EP, Lord of Lamba.
This elicited responses from some of her followers. They asked her to post a video of her dancing to the song.
