Question

Marlians! Please is there any reason why you identify as Marlians? I’m asking for research.

Answer

First, we only have one life. Our president promises us a good life. And so far he his delivering. He his delivering. As long as he keeps delivering, I will continue to be in his kingdom. Secondly, he his a sage. An elder statesman. A poet. In one of his popular works titled Soapy, he stated

This is after many years of researching into the underworld. His boldness to bring this findings into the public view is what has made us to stan. Even after being arrested by the EFCC.

We liken his works in Soapy to that of those of BBC codeine usage and sex-for-grade.edited Lastly, so as not to bore you, he has experienced a lot and shared some of the wisdom in his works. You may remember him saying

ikú ló gara ju, ènìyàn tí wọn s’ogun àìkú fún, ba wò ló ṣe fẹ mọ bí ọ sise

Naira Marley in opotoyi.

Scholars have made us to understand that this saying can be likened to the sayings of Plato and Aristotle. It has deep meaning but scholars in the field have said we shouldn’t try to interpret what the sage is saying and just take like that.

Question

I understand being enamoured by his words of wisdom, but how is he delivering in his promise of a good life?

Answer

His preachings are straight forward. You need to experience it to understand. Tomorrow is a good day as all Marlians around the world will come to pay homage. But here goes, a Marlian can never be sad because he his always high. Don’t you want a life where you can never be sad? A Marlian is always at home when he sees another Marlian. The sage has said

” control the crowd control the crowd, Marlian come forward the rest fuck off “

Naira Marley

This is to show the love he has for us. This also means Marlian are never alone. Don’t you want a life where you are never lonely? A Marlian appreciates good thing when he sees it. Even if the thing is covered. That’s what we learnt in “opotoyi“.

Question

Damn!! This is good stuff. But what about the no belt thing?

Answer

In the sage’s wisdom, which we can’t question, he wants Marlians to recognize themselves anywhere in the world. The Catholics have rosery, the Christians have their Bible, the Jehovah witness has his tie, suit and portfolio case, and the Marlian has dropping trouser. It is our way to build the community. When you see your fellow Marlian on the road, you need to pay homage. Respect each other. So that’s the easiest way we recognise each other.

To buttress this conversation, let see quote from Segun Akande, formerly of Zikoko, who wrote that Naira Marley Might Know Exactly What He’s Doing.

What Naira Marley represents isn’t just his music. The rapper may be his own biggest fan and his brand of pedagogy is largely self-serving. What more evidence does one need than that cringe-worthy self-comparison to Africa’s greatest individuals – Fela Kuti, Nelson Mandela – on “Am I A Yahoo Boy?”.
