Nigerian singer and record label boss, Afeez Fashola aka Naira Marley has taken to Instagram to dismiss reports that he had a hand in the death of his former signee, Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.
He stated that he has no hand, directly or indirectly, in the demise of the 27-year-old Afrobeats star.
Naira Marley said he has not only been shocked by the passing of Mohbad but also by the ‘’lies and threats” issued against him.
He said that himself and Mohbad had their share of disagreements while working together but that it never degenerated into wishing each other death.
He said he has been out of the country since August 31 but is making plans to return following an invitation by the police who are currently investigating the death of late Mohbad. He said he is fully cooperating with the police team and has no reason to be a fugitive since he has no hand in the death of Mohbad.
Naira Marley said in due time the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death will be unveiled and the world will know the truth. He added that Mohbad left his record label in September 2022 and that his departure was well accepted. He dismissed claims that his label tried to stop Mohbad from working after he left.
He also stated that he is not a drug lord and that claims that his record label is a drug cartel are untrue. He added that he has never fought Mohbad nor instructed anyone to bully or attack Mohbad.
