Naira Marley described his arrest as a birthday gift from God. “My arrest on my birthday was the biggest gift from God.”
The talented musician is out with a new album titled God’s Time is the Best (GTTB). Naira Marley who records a track between 20 to 25 minutes has graced Marlians with 14 tracks on this album.
