Naira Marley “Soapy” is his sixth single of 2019 and it was released just days after his release from prison after the order of the Ikoyi high court.
This song after its release created a lot of controversies as people were divided on their opinions about the message in the song. A lot of criticism was sent the way of Naira Marley as people felt the song was encouraging masturbation amongst youths while others opined that it was never encouraging masturbation as it’s just a song that was dropped to make listeners feel good and forget every sorrow that bothers their state of mind. Rexxie once again produces this sound which many are considering as a serious contender for song of the year.
This song was dropped exactly on the 27th of June, 2019 to an amazingly-awesome reception from Nigerian music fans. The song didn’t come only with the video but was accompanied by a dance step called “Soapy” dance which is currently trending nationwide. It’s also showing signs of breaking a national barrier by creeping to other African countries. “Soapy’s” video was directed by fast-rising video director, TG Omori who has worked with superstars such as Wizkid, Olamide, etc. The video was published on YouTube on the 9th of August, 2019 and in just three weeks, it has garnered over 3 million views
