Naira Marley, a controversial Nigerian artist, categorically denied any connection between DJ Splash and Marlian Music, as well as refuting any claims that DJ Splash had ever served as his official DJ.
These statements were made during an interview with former presidential spokesperson Reno Omokri, in response to allegations that he had a detrimental impact on DJ Splash’s life.
Naira Marley clarified that DJ Splash was never signed to his Marlian Music record label, and any association was merely due to a photo they took together, without any formal professional arrangement.
In his words, “DJ Splash was never signed to Marlian Music; I know him as a DJ, but he’s never deejayed with me at shows or anything, it’s not like he’s my DJ, they just gave him the title because I have a picture with him. As nice as I am to everybody now, there’s a lot of people around me that come and go.
When whatever happened to him, he was not at my house, he was far gone from I don’t know where he went and I don’t understand where all this is coming from, DJ Splash, DJ whatever, I don’t understand where it’s coming from, that’s all lies, they’re just bringing out people from nowhere to tell lies. He was never my DJ, he was never signed to Marlian Music, he has never worked for Marlian Music.”
