Naira Marley Releases Cinematic Visuals For “Japa”

South East London’s Peckham pioneer of AfroBashment, Naira Marley, releases most anticipated visuals to his single “Japa”. After introducing the audio version short while back this year, the tune has been gaining the likes of everyone over the summer so the video dropped just on time.

Ever since his debut track “Marry Juana”, the first tune where he fused the slang and accent of his birth city Lagos with the floor filling riddims of Jamaican Bashment – all delivered with the charismatic road swagger of his adopted hometown of Peckham, South London, Naira’s energy has always made him feel unique in the scene and every project he has released has shown how versatile the artist can be.

The production is curtesy of Moves Recordings and it starts off with the definition of the word “Japa” – which describes the act of escaping/avoiding someone or something by the way of trickery and Yoruba demon wits. From here on, the video plays on the title and captures Naira in an escape from the police as he runs around endz and using all the tricks he can to stay uncaught. Shot by Visionnaire Pictures, the video looks really clean, with gripping scenarios and fast moving captions that compliment the track’s energy and keep you on edge, just like movie.

Needless to say, Naira is one of a kind in UK’s music scene and “Japa” is sounding and looking cold. Make sure you watch the video out now.
