Mohbad: Naira Marley’s Lawyer Speaks On Artiste’s ‘Innocence’, Plan For Deceased
One of the legal counsels to embattled Malian Records boss, Azeez Fashola, a.k.a Naira Marley, Barr. Gani Arobo, has opened up on his client’s dealings with a former signee of his record label, Promise IleriOluwa Aloba, a.k.a Mohbad, who died on September 12, 2023.
The lawyer insisted that Naira Marley was innocent of all allegations of bullying Mohbad as there was no evidence anywhere to nail the street singer.
The lawyer disclosed this in an interview with media personality, Daddy Freeze, in a video posted in the wee hours of Sunday.
“As for Naira Marley, I believe you will not find a single incident where Naira Marley bullied him. Now, as for Sam Larry, what I understand, speaking to his lawyers and speaking to him directly, is that on that fateful day, I think it was sometime in June, 2023, he came to Elegushi Beach for something else and then as soon as he walked in, I think they told him that some musicians were shooting video somewhere around the beach. So, of course, being someone involved in promoting music and all that, he wanted to know who and who was involved in that activity.
“So, he went there and as soon as he got in there, so, to confirm that he did not know it was Mohbad – remember that if you look at that video – the first thing that came out of his mouth was ‘iwo tie ni, ah o l’ole l’oni (so it’s even you, you won’t go to your house today). Immediately he said that, you will observe that Zlatan got up trying to stop him from approaching Mohbad. And that video is a nine-second video, Daddy Freeze, it will interest you to know that there is a longer version of that video. I will send these materials to you. The longer version of that video shows these guys eating Amala together shortly after that incident, you won’t believe that. Zlatan was wearing the same shirt he was wearing at that video shoot, Sam Larry was wearing…(injected), I think Mohbad had changed his own cloth, but that same day, they went to eat Amala together.
“I don’t want to rant out Zlatan, but I expect that Zlatan would come out and clarify on this issue because we know what he said to people, including Davido, as it relates to the incident. He was specific about whether Sam Larry did anything to Mohbad on that day. But Daddy Freeze, don’t take my word for it!
