I Once Played For Arsenal – Naira Marley


Nigerian singer Naira Marley has disclosed that he once played for popular English side Arsenal Football Club while growing up.

The controversial artiste who rose to prominence with his hit single 'Issa Goal' in December 2017 made the disclosure in a recent chat with Cool FM Nigeria in Lagos.

He said that many people do not know the details of the life he lived in London, UK before he moved to Nigeria.

On his Yoruba heritage, Naira Marley dished that his father made him learn the local dialect as the latter banned English in the house. 

“What made it easy for me [to blend with Nigerian street music] is that I grew up in South-East London, Peckham to be precise. That is like small Lagos, you know what I mean?

“And all my life in England, my dad banned speaking English in the house. So, we had to speak Yoruba and all this Yoruba stuff.

“I still listen to Fuji. We eat African foods. Even though I’m in England, it was like I’m still in Nigeria. Yeah, it was easy for me. When I came back [to Nigeria], people didn’t really know I came from London.”

“I could have been a footballer too, I used to play for Arsenal youth, Millwall, Charlton”, he shared.
