Michael Adebayo Olayinka, the popular Nigerian singer, who is professionally known as Ruger has narrated how the followers of the late singer, Mohbad contributed to his death.
Mohbad, a former signee of the Marlian Record label owned by Naira Marley died on Tuesday September 12, 2023, in a controversial manner.
Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry were accused of having a hand in Mohbad’s sudden death after a series of documents and videos of the duo subjecting Mohbad to a relentless bullying for leaving the Record label surfaced on social media.
However, speaking in his latest interview with UK-based media personality, Adesope Olajide on ‘Afrobeats Podcast’, Ruger blamed fans for complicating issues for Mohbad before his death.
He accused the late singer’s fans of not supporting him when he parted ways with the record label.
“I don’t know whether the label was Mohbad’s problem or not. I just want you all to know that the label was not only his problem, but the fans were his problem too.
“Because as soon as he left the label, I don’t think people continued listening to him anymore. I feel like they were just attached to the fact that he was a Marlian,” he said.
