Naira Marley welcomes former YBNL act Lyta to record label

Controversial singer Naira Marley has revealed former YBNL act Lyta as the latest artiste to join his record label Marlian Music.

In January, Marley had launched his own label with the signing of four artistes—Zinoleesky, Mohbad, Cblack, and Fabian — during a massive concert themed ‘Marlian Fest’ in Victoria Island, Lagos.

On Tuesday, Marley took to his Twitter page to share a picture of Lyta with a document that appears to be a record deal, with the caption:

“Welcome to MarlianMusic Lyta.”

Reacting to the development, Lyta wrote:

“I’m so excited to be joining my new family Marlian music, thank you my President @nairamarley for giving me this amazing opportunity.”

Explaining why he left Olamide‘s record label in 2019, Lyta had said he was given a music release calendar which was inconsistent with how often he intended dropping new songs.

“When we want to drop new songs, we do so in a group of five. I was dropping my songs and they were talking about a calendar of some sort that I knew nothing about,” he said.

“I couldn’t always have to wait that long before dropping songs for my fans. That was why I made the move to leave the label. Olamide treats me well.

“He takes me like a son and taught me lots of stuff, told me I had to hustle. While I’ve been there, I’ve been okay with the family. But for the good of my music career, I decided to move.”

“I don’t have any deal with YBNL or Olamide. Olamide saw me on the street and helped me. I don’t have any written contract with him… YBNL and Olamide will always be part of my story.

“Yes, I was getting benefits. They used to pay me for shows. Sometimes N80,000, N60,000. But when I dropped my songs, ‘Temi’ and ‘Selfmade,’ I didn’t get anything.”
