    Not much is known on the parents of Naira Marley, but I have little info on his siblings. Naira Marley's sister Mariam Fashola is a model and Instagram star. His brother, Babatunde Moshood popularly known as Shuddy Fundz, is an entertainer and a talent manager. The two look alike (Naira and Babatunde), which makes people think they are twins. His other brother is called Idris, well known as Marley Jr.


    Well we wish the Marlians boss more heights in the industry. We do hope he gives rise to new artist in the industry just like Zinoleesky and Mohbad. Zero Belt A Thousand Trousers. Thanks for reading my blog, please read more below.
