Lagos-via-Peckham superstar Naira Marley — hailed by NPR as “one of the greatest and most celebrated artists performing and producing in the Afrobeat scene today” — continues his annual celebration of Nigerian Independence Day with the release of a brand-new video for Ayewada. Taken from his critically acclaimed debut album God’s Timing’s The Best, issued in May, the Rexxie-produced song was previously used as the intro track to Marley’s NPR Tiny Desk.

After years of solidifying his reputation as both the pioneer of Afro/Hip Hop and a prominent voice of the streets, London’s underground legend Naira Marley has continued to develop his music, marrying the raw, unpolished tones of UK rap, the Yoruba language and the sounds of the diaspora to release an uncompromising & unpredictable sonic palette in stark contrast to the saccharine commerciality of the Nigerian AfroPop mainstream.
