The controversy surrounding the untimely demise of Promise Oladimeji Aloba, known as Mohbad, has taken a new turn as over 100,000 individuals have signed a petition against Azeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, the owner of Marlian Records World.
The petition, which was launched recently, aims to advocate for the closure of Marlian Records, further escalating the tensions surrounding the tragic loss of Mohbad.
Previously, we reported that a petition titled “Ban Marlian Music” garnered over 47,000 signatures from purported fans of the late singer Mohbad, as they called for a ban on Marlian music. Allegations against Marlian Records included claims that the label was involved in drug-related activities, operating under the guise of a music record label.
The controversy surrounding Mohbad’s sudden death has intensified, with notable industry figures like Naira Marley and Sam Larry being implicated by some individuals. A video emerged showing Sam Larry, an associate of Naira Marley, along with others, harassing Mohbad on a music set. Outraged Nigerians took to social media platforms to express their displeasure, accusing the group of bullying and oppressing the late artist.
In a quest for justice for the young singer, the petitioners have alleged that Marlian Records recruits young individuals to engage in drug peddling and related activities.
Additionally, fans of the late Mohbad have vehemently called for the removal of all songs by Naira Marley from music platforms, expressing their belief that Naira Marley is linked to the musician’s tragic demise.
Naira Marley, who signed Mohbad to his record label in 2019, finds himself at the center of this controversy. The situation is evolving rapidly, with growing public scrutiny and pressure on authorities to investigate the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death and the operations of Marlian Records.
As the petition continues to gain momentum, it remains to be seen how this unfolding drama will impact the Nigerian music industry and the future of Marlian Records.
