Naira Marley’s controversy–riddled, rebellious streak has skyrocketed his stock over the course of the year. While his latest release, “Mafo” with perennial hit-maker Young John, is sure to keep him in radio and playlist rotation, the song has a laidback feel like a casual pat on the back from the artist to himself. Frequently interjecting his trademark quips like “inside life”, the lyrics are mostly pastiche, in celebration of the lavish lifestyle he’s been living since he began his hot run. However, his slurred cadence over the rumbling production from Young John and Rexxie keeps the novelty intact.
Adding extra gloss to his loose proclamation, the video Naya Visuals directs shows Naira Marley and Young John decked in eye-catching suits, energetically miming their set in the company of friends, at a mansion. The video also highlights the song’s primary intention to serve dancefloor audiences with models seen dancing to the song.
