How To Join Naira Marley’s Record Label, Marlian Music

It’s no more news that Naira Marley has floated his own record label, Marlian Music. Getting signed by a record label these days is tough, a lot of young talents perish because there’s no one to groom and sponsor their music careers.

In this post, I will show you the steps and things that you need to do to get signed to Marlian Music.

Naira Marley announced the launch of his record label, Marlian Records on December 30th 2019, during the maiden edition of his music concert, ‘Marlian Fest’ held in Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The announcement was welcomed by cheers and excitement from the audience, who were least expecting to hear the news. Shortly after the announcement, Naira Marley unveiled four music artistes, MohBad, C-Blvck, Fabian Blu and Zinoleesky.

The signing of four artistes in less than 24 hours after launch is a clear indication that Marlian Music is in for serious business. Naira Marley took the step further to sign three new acts, EMO Grae, Lyta and Tori Keeche, which makes it 7 artistes in the roster of his company. It is likely that the Marlian Music Records will be signing more artistes in the long run.

Do you want to fulfil your dreams of becoming the next superstar? If yes, then Marlian Records can help you. 

How To Join Marlian Records

1. Be Talented

A lot of people just want to become a music artiste simply because of the fame and the money. They are not interested in training themselves on vocal ability, technique, songwriting, dancing, and show performance.

Getting fame and money is quite good, but will you get there without good songs? You need good songs to get fans, to get featured by top artistes and blow. If your songs are not good enough, no one will listen to it – except you. Talent in this context doesn’t relate to vocal ability only, your ability to write hit songs also make you talented.

Some artistes are great in songwriting, give them a pen and paper and they will compose a club banger for you. If you are this type of artiste, you can get signed by Marlian Music.

For instance, Peruzzi is highly talented in crafting hit songs, his talent and songwriting ability secured him a record deal at Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) records.

You should have songs that showcase your talent and musical prowess. Get a good recording studio, find your sound and start making good songs. It is also important that you find events and shows to perform and display your gift. You shouldn’t turn down shows even if they are free.

Performing at shows gives you boldness, your stage performance can guarantee you of a recording contract with a record label.

Skales for instance, was discovered by Banky W in a show. Subsequently, he was signed to Empire Mates Entertainment (EME). While on shows, you can be connected to some big names in the industry. Luckily for you, you may bump into Naira Marley, Davido, Don Jazzy or any other record label executive in a show.

2. Have a Good Social Media Following

As a musician, you need to be conscious and observant of your fanbase. Your fanbase is very important because it plays a part in helping you succeed in the industry. If your new song is loved by people, there is tendency that people will share it, play it in their shops and on their phones and make it trend online.

The bottom line is for you to have a fanbase. If you don’t have one, then this is the right time for you to build one.

Sharing your songs to your friends and few family members will not make you blow, or make your song popular. You can leverage today’s world where anyone can access the internet by creating social media handles to promote your songs.

Zinoleesky for instance, became known on Instagram for his tongue twisting raps in Yoruba language. His social media popularity got him a record deal at Marlian Music.

Also, Lil Frosh is another social media sensation who became popular for his vibrant rap skits of social media. It was Davido who signed Lil Frosh to DMW after watching some of his videos online.

Go to Twitter and Facebook or better still, Instagram,  sign up and create a befitting profile. Your stage name should make up your username or part of your username – this is done for identification purposes.

In essence, your page must be brandable. If your stage name is Queen Sugar, you may consider using it as your username or profile name on social media.

Post the links to your songs and song graphic cover to your page, and ask your followers to repost or retweet. Support other music artistes, tag them, comment on their post and repost their songs. Most importantly, you must be active and consistent to build a huge following on social media.

3. Your Style of Music

Style of music is another determinant that can get you signed to Marlian Records. Looking at the lost of music artistes on Naira Marley’s record roster, virtually all artistes are Afropop artistes.

The style of these artistes are almost the same, they are Afropop hitmakers. You’ll hardly find any of them making gospel, jazz, RnB, or alternative music. Therefore, if you make street music, you have high chances of getting signed to Naira Marley record label.

The current singers on the label are Lyta, Zinoleesky, Fabian Blu, EMO Grae, Tori Keeche and while the rappers are C Black and MohBad.

However, if you do not compose street music, you can stay true to your genre. Surely, your effort and hard work will pay off in the long run. You can consider making a cover of any of Naira Marley’s popular songs like Mafo, Soapy, Am I A Yahoo Boy, Puta, Opotoyi.

Get the instrumental or ask your producer to make a remake of the beat, jump on the song and make a hit. Afterwards, you can consider sending the song to Naira Marley to listen. Luckily for you, you can get signed if the music wins the hearts of the Marlian President.


There are many benefits that you’ll enjoy if you are signed to Marlian Records. First of all, you can get to feature A-List artistes in your songs and you can also get featured on Naira Marley’s songs, albums and projects. For instance, CBlack came to limelight after he featured Naira Marley in ‘Ogologo’. 

Since ‘Marlian’ is a code name for all Naira Marley fans and followers, your songs are expected to reach a large number of people. Naira Marley is a popular figure in the Nigerian music industry, he has lots of followers on social media and many fans all over the world.

He can use his influence to promote and hype your music so that you too can shine. This is the reason why the songs of Zinoleesky, CBlack, MohBad and Fabian Blu are doing well.
