Naira Marley, a rave of the moment in the Nigerian music industry had exposed some hidden facts about himself during an interview with Olisa Adibua on his show titled 'The Truth with Olisa'. In the course of the interview, the 'soapy' crooner spoke about his journey to fame into the Nigerian music industry.

Naira Marley told Olisa that he got into music after he made a sum of £250,000; which happens to be his first 'big cash' while residing in the UK. However, he refused to reveal how he made the money.

Although Marley could sing at the time he made his first 'money', he declared that his initial intentions wasn't exactly going into music. According to him, he planned to invest the money into other artists who were always doing 'dope' freestyles around him.

He furthered that while they were still making their usual freestyle songs, he made a song that actually caught the attention of everyone. He went ahead to shoot a video for the song; and to his amazement, it got over four million views just after three weeks of upload.

This prompted him to come back to Nigeria; after which he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for activities relating to cyber crime, popularly called 'yahoo' in Nigeria.

When asked by Olisa on the car he was accused to have allgedly stole, the 'Marlian' leader said such story was silly and the news about the theft wasn’t what it seemed like.

Olisa further questioned him on the credit card fraud allegation levied against him. In reaction, the 'soapy' hit maker said he had never been involved in such activity. Instead, only foreign numbers and letters were found on his laptop and there wasn’t much to talk about concerning the issue.

The 'No Belt Gang' (NBG) leader said that he takes himself seriously and the 'Marlian Movement' (MM) which he created has come to stay.

During the interview, the street music star revealed that he has four kids from two baby mamas; and he is presently in a relationship. He also confirmed himself as a marijuana smoker.

Concerning his international musical collaborations, he confessed his intentions to feature Cardi-B and Da Baby.
