Finally, there is someone whose leg can fit into his great shoes. @nairamarley is not just a #singer, no, his #music is also spiritual, its a reflection of almost everything Fela stood for and more. Its not about what he smokes, but about how he connects easily with the #Nigerian youth, forget about the vulgarity in his #songs, the spirit that flows deeply from the fountain of his #lyrics is everything that makes him a legend and a voice for the youth across.”
