Naira Marley's resurfaced album announcement sparks controversy and fan reactions


A video of Nigerian Street-pop artist, Afeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, officially revealing his debut album has surfaced online, triggering a wave of fan reactions.

The clip which resurfaced on Sunday, December 17, gained traction weeks after the artist's clearance by the Nigerian police, putting an end to his involvement in the investigation into the death of singer Mohbad.

In the video, Naira Marley enthusiastically discloses the title of his debut album, "God's Time Is The Best" (GTTB), first released in 2022. However, the unawareness of the video's age led to instant criticism as it went viral. Some Nigerians slammed the artist, deeming it insensitive to announce an album given recent circumstances.

While the resurfaced clip received backlash for its timing, there were those who didn't realize its antiquity, resulting in calls for Naira Marley's re-arrest. The incident has sparked debates online, with fans expressing mixed opinions on the appropriateness of the album announcement in the present context.
