Shubomi is a 25 year-old Nigerian fashion model and brand influencer who gained public recognition for being famous singer Naira Marley’s younger sister. What’s more, the star model and Zinoleesky recently sparked dating rumors following a video of them that surfaced online.
Thanks to her relationship with Naira Marley, Shubomi has remained a popular face in the Nigerian entertainment world. Sitting on the wave of fame her brother has already built, she boasts of a significant brand for herself, especially on social media. Here are all the details you should know about Shubomi and her alleged relationship with Zinoleesky.
Shubomi was Born and Raised in Lagos State
Shubomi was born on the 20th of March 1998 in Agege, Lagos State, Nigeria. She is professionally known as Shubomi but her birth name is Mariam Olaolohunshubomi Ayuba. She is from a Muslim family and was raised by her parents in the city of Lagos alongside her siblings. Asides from this, there is no other available information about who her parents are or what they do for a living.
Shubomi reportedly came from a large family but it is not known if her father married only one wife or has other wives since they are Muslims. Growing up in Lagos, Shubomi speaks Yoruba and English languages fluently. She had her primary and secondary education at prestigious private schools in Lagos State. After that, she got admission to study at the University of Lagos where she graduated with a degree in the Faculty of Arts.
Is Shubomi Really Naira Marley’s sister?
While Naira Marley’s real name is Azeez Fashola, Shubomi’s real name is Mariam Olaolohunshubomi Ayuba and not Shubomi Fashola as many sources claim. The model revealed this on one of her birthdays when she shared her bank account details for those who would be willing to send her money.
So, if actually, Shubomi is Naira Marley’s “sister” in any way, then they might only be cousins or relations in some other way. Regardless, she is very close to the musician. The two take every opportunity they have to celebrate each other by sharing photos and videos of themselves on Instagram.
Naira Marley was born on 10th May 1991 which means he is seven years older than his sister Shubomi
