US-based Nigerian singer, Speed Darlington, has said that he is the person who inspired rapper, Naira Marley to do music.
He said he’s been inspiring a lot of artistes for several years and he was already a viral sensation before the ‘Tesumole’ crooner made his debut.
According to Speed Darlington, Naira Marley was not in the industry in 2015 or 2016 when he was releasing songs and videos back-to-back.
Naira Marley released his first hit song ‘Issa Goal’ in 2017 which features Olamide and Lil Kesh. But in 2019, his fraud themed single ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy’ finally gave him a big break in music.
In a video circulating online, the rapper said he is also the brain behind Zanku but it was stolen from him and popularized.

In other entertainment news, Nigerian comedian and social activist, Debo Adedayo, professionally known as Mr Macaroni has dragged two supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC) over a libelous statement.
He said he has ordered his lawyers to file lawsuit against one Qudus Akanbi and Sadiq who claimed he was paid N7m by a diaspora group to support the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
In November 2022, Akanbi with Twitter username @Qdpaper 2 tweeted; “Wow wow so Macaroni was giving 7 million from diasporans supporters of Peter Obi just to make an official statement that he will vote Peter Obi. So this hungry Elete ponmo is so cheap and hungry like this, hey God 🤮 Dem no dey give shishi they say.”
Macaroni described the allegation as an attack on his reputation and decided to sue him alongside Sadiq.
He made this known in a post on his verified Twitter page as he noted that the second responded had already been served his writ of summons.
The content creator and comic act, however, asked Qudus to reveal his full name so that it the letter can be properly addressed.
He shared screenshots of old tweets where the he was being attacked and falsely accused by Akanbi alongside other APC supports.
Mr Macaroni wrote; “Dear Qudus, I have unblocked you. All I need is your full Government name and your address so that the letter can be properly addressed to you. Pls don’t stress yourself to pick up. You can Dm me or send to the mail in my bio. It will be delivered to you as a valentine gift.
Of all the people that attack me daily, I singled out Qudus and one other Sadiq for false accusations. Sadiq has received his letter and a suit will follow soon as we are yet to get a response. The only reason I made this public is because we couldn’t get an address for Qudus.”
