Shares new video for ‘Issa Goal’
Lagos-born-Peckham-bred Naira Marley – a key pioneer in the UK AfroBashment scene – has shared his latest video for ‘Issa Goal’ premiering over on The Fader. The beautifully shot green-and-white celebration was filmed in the metropolis of Lagos by London based videographer Crack Stevens.

‘Issa Goal’ is an anthem to success – an infectious good time party track that is set to deliver the tune and the catchphrase of 2018. It sees Naira team up with the current biggest names in Nigeria:, Olamide and Lil Kesh, artists who have amassed over 100 million views between them. The three MCs trade lines about their goals over an uptempo afro-dance beat created by Nigerian born, UK based producer Studio Magic. Along the way they shout out iconic Naija footballers Jay-Jay Okocha and Nwankwu Kanu, the joy of Jollof rice from Ghana and Nigeria, and even find time to big up Mans Not Hot.
Since first bursting onto the scene with 2014 party anthem Marry Juana, Naira Marley has created a string of records fusing his inimitable Lagos accent with trap, bashment, grime and afrobeats, encapsulating the melting pot of London. A flamboyant, magnetic character, and something of an urban myth. With two records previously on heavy club rotation (the afrobeat/rap classic Money on the Road, currently standing as Noisey’s most viewed UK video of 2017, and wavy new jam Flying Away which has been pulling in supporters from LA to Lagos to London), he now drops what may be his biggest video yet.
