If you haven’t heard of the Marlians, you’re probably not an African or maybe you live under a rock. Even Americans recognise the movement! The marlian movement can be dubbed the biggest movement in 2019 without debate.
A lot has happened and even the supposedly serious persons are becoming a part of the movement. You will be shocked to see the calibre of people who are now Marlians. Check out the list below.
Dr. Joe Abah – Last month, Dr. Joe Abah made a tweet that changed how many people saw naira Marley. He told his followers that he decided to listen to Naira Marley’s songs and he saw that the young man is not as bad and immoral as he is painted to be.
In his words, he said Naira Marley challenges the hypocrisy of Nigerians by talking about the things they love but are too cowardly to admit. He then vowed to follow the President of the Marlians, which he did immediately.
Just in case you have no idea who Joe Abah is, he is the former Director-General of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR).
Zlatan – Naira Marley could be said to be Zlatan’s best friend. These two spend a lot of time together, creating hit songs and just enjoying each others company.
Naira Marley definitely had a huge impact on the invention of Zanku, his steps show that.
Also, they were both arraigned by the EFCC when Naira Marley was charged with online fraud. Zlatan Ibile us definitely one of the founding members of the Marlians.
Wizkid – As a king in the industry, Wizkid officially became a Marlian after he gave Naira Marley the platform to perform on one of the biggest stages in the world: O2 Arena.
The performance became the highlight of the show, and Wizkid confirmed his membership on Twitter in the morning. If Wizkid endorses Naira, who needs more approval?
Davido – Ever since Zlatan and Naira Marley started getting recognition, Davido has supportive. Sometimes, you will think Zlatan is a member of DMW.
He was always around them, and Davido took both him and Naira Marley as family. Davido is very vocal about his support for Naira Marley. He has also been spotted representing the no belt gang.
Burna Boy – The African Giant has been one of the major pushers of the Zanku “gbe body e” culture.
He is clearly a supporter of Naira Marley, especially because they are both stoners. You know what they say about how stoners connect. Naira Marley and Burna have been spotted at many clubs and events around the world vibe together.
Toke Makinwa – To our huge surprise, Toke Makinwa happens to be one of the biggest fans of Naira Marley. She has been seen ‘losing her home training’ on many occasions when Naira Marley’s song comes up. She became extremely excited such that she screamed when Naira Marley showed up at her birthday.
It surprised everyone that despite the influx of celebrities at her part, Naira Marley was the only one who got that kind of reaction.
The Marlian movement is expanding and more and more influential persons are identifying with the movement. We wouldn’t be surprised to see someone like Dino Melaye or even Prof. Osinbajo become a Marlian.
