Famous singer Azeez Adeshina Sanyaolu aka Naira Marley has described his arrest by The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) as God’s plan.
The Marlian Record’s boss spoke on Sunday night during his debut album listening party titled ‘God’s Timing’s the Best’(GTTB) Victoria Island, Lagos.
While speaking about the inspiration behind the title of the album and his journey so far, he said: “Wad up my people I thank everyone for coming out here, big love and I appreciate. God’s time is the best is basically…In my life, I have been trying to plan a lot of things in my own time and it didn’t really work out.
“Like me coming to Nigeria, EFCC arresting me and then letting me go. So yeah everything is just in God’s timing.
“So God’s timing is the best because this album came at God’s time, I could have dropped the album a long time ago but I dropped it now.”
When asked if EFCC’s arrest was God’s plan, he said yes.
Under 12 hours of release, GTTB has hit the no 1 spot on Apple Music’s top Nigerian albums chart.
The 14-track album is the singer’s first since his 2017 single ‘Issa Goal’ pushed him to the limelight.
The album features artists such as Mayorkun, Zinoleesky, Jada Kingdom, MHD, Mohbad, Busiswa, Chivv & Diquenza.
