A still from Naira Marley's Tingasa video.

Watch Naira Marley's New Music Video for 'Tingasa,' Featuring C Blvck

The latest song from Nigerian artist Naira Marley is as infectious as ever.

Nigerian artist Naira Marley shares his latest music video for 'Tingasa,' the opening rack from his latest EP Lord of Lamba (LOL).

On the single—which also features his label mate C Blvk—Marley lays rapid and catchy lyrics in Pidgin and Yoruba over gritty dance production from star Nigerian producer Killertunes. The song is bold, energetic and features an infectious hook.

The hazy music video, directed by K Somto, takes place mostly in a car garage packed with luxury vehicles and motorbikes, as well as several members of the Marley's crew. They appear cool and collected as they dance along to the track's upbeat production.


Marley dropped the 6-track Lord of Lamba in December and it was met with stellar reviews from his many fans, commonly known as "Marlians." He dropped the music video for another of its standout tracks "Tesumole" the same month of its release.

His hit 2019 collaboration with fellow Nigerian artist Zlatan, "Am I a Yahoo Boy," made OkayAfrica's list of the "20 Best Nigerian Songs of 2019." But it's his hit "Soapy" from last August that has really captured people's imaginations. The video for Soapy, directed by star in his own right, TG Omori, has racked up over nine million views since it was uploaded. A rather simple concept, "Soapy" has Naira Marley in a minimalist jail setting going through the motions of jail life, fighting with the guards, talking to his mom through a glass window, dancing and, eventually, partying with his prison-mates including some women. Did they sneak in? Will "Tingasa" surpass "Soapy" in popularity? Despite some pretty impressive dancing, it's unlikely. But the song is still tight nonetheless.

Check out the music video for 'Tingasa' below.
