Journalist Joey Akan Believes Naira Marley and Zlatan Will Fade Away (See His Reasons)

Nigerian journalist, music critic and analyst, Joey Akan Journalist Joey Akan Believes Naira Marley and Zlatan will fade away.

According to Joey Akan, Naira Marley and Zlatan Ibile could loose fans if they fail to drop a hit as zanku era is coming to an end.

In his words,

“Watch how people begin to denounce their Marlian pledges. Not because they hate Naira Marley and his movement. No. It’ll become stale too. Music is the nucleus of that movement, and if Zanku goes, and nothing special replaces it, it’ll obey the law of Natural Selection.”

“What will save Marlian nation from disbanding or moving away from the fore, is if Naira Marley drops another hit with the new wave. If he doesn’t, the bandwagon will slowly lose members. And they will hang around like minions, waiting for another king. Someone with a fresh wave.”

“That’s why fandom is an exercise in futility. It’s always in flux, forcing you to adapt your pleasure centers to new cultural stimulus. Just as in life, at some point, you will lose the zeal to move. Pop Inertia will become a force too strong. And you will alight and find peace.”

Short-term, long-term. We always find our hill to die on. Marley definitely won’t be yours. He’s enjoyed a short reign. On to the next one.
