In the wake of the untimely demise of Nigerian rapper and singer, Mohbad Ifeoluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, a groundswell of concern and grief has swept through Nigeria’s music industry. Tragically, the passing of this young talent has catalyzed a movement among Nigerians who are now petitioning for the ban of Marlian Music, the record label owned by Naira Marley.
Mohbad, 26, had been a rising star in the Nigerian music scene, known for his lyrical prowess and unique style. However, his promising career was marred by allegations of threats to his life, purportedly originating from Naira Marley, the influential figure behind Marlian Music.
Prior to his tragic death, Mohbad had publicly voiced concerns about his safety, claiming that he had received threats from Naira Marley and his associates. These allegations sent shockwaves through the music industry and left many fans deeply disturbed.
Now, in a bid to seek justice for the late artist and to shed light on the circumstances surrounding his death, concerned fans and supporters have initiated a petition aimed at banning Marlian Music. The online petition was launched on change.org by ardent fans of Mohbad and has gained significant traction in a short span of time.
As of the time of this report, the petition has garnered an impressive 200,000 signatures and continues to gather support from Nigerians and music enthusiasts around the world. The signatures represent a resounding call for authorities to investigate the allegations made by Mohbad before his tragic passing and to scrutinize the operations of Marlian Music.
The petitioners contend that banning Marlian Music would not only serve as a form of justice for the late artist but also send a strong message regarding the importance of maintaining ethical standards and safety within the Nigerian music industry.
Naira Marley, the owner of Marlian Music, has not issued an official statement regarding the allegations or the petition. However, as the petition gains momentum, it is clear that the public outcry surrounding Mohbad’s death and the safety concerns within the industry will continue to demand the attention of both music professionals and law enforcement agencies alike. The tragic loss of Mohbad serves as a stark reminder of the need for transparency and accountability within the Nigerian music scene.
