I like Naira like say I like woman. But what I’m saying is that I wasn’t appreciated and if it continued that way, they were going to keep downgrading me. I left, I didn’t even go there for them to pay me though, but at least appreciation is good.”
How Marlian Music started
Not stopping there, he added that the whole of Marlian Music started with just one duplex where about 15 of them stayed together before Naira started to build houses.
Smart explained that when Naira started to build estates and houses, he could not even give him a room to stay in and he resorted to sleeping on couches and squatting with people for four years.
The dancer added that when he saw what was happening, he decided to lead by example and leave the label.
In his words:
“I know how we started. Everybody started from one duplex, like the whole Marlian Music, we dey stay one duplex together, we be like 15 for one duplex, that’s how we started and now he is building estates, he is building houses and he can’t even say ‘Smart take one room and stay’. I slept on the chair, I squatted around for four years, I saw that and I left, that’s leading by example.”
