Naira Marley Summoned by House of Representatives Over Mohbad’s Royalties

Controversial musician Azeez Fashola, widely recognized as Naira Marley, has been called upon by the House of Representatives to address the matter of the late singer Mohbad’s musical rights.

The House Committee on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance has also extended an invitation to Jiggy Adeoye, Mohbad’s manager, to attend a session scheduled for October 31.

This decision to summon Naira Marley and Mohbad’s manager was made following a motion presented by Babajimi Benson, the representative for Ikorodu Federal Constituency in Lagos State.

Benson emphasized the significance of reevaluating the current legislation governing the entertainment industry and copyright regulations. He expressed reservations about the contractual agreements that artists are frequently required to enter into.

In a letter dated October 26, signed by the committee’s clerk, Yusuf Ibrahim, the House stated that both Naira Marley and Mohbad’s manager were required to guide further legislative action.

Mohbad, whose real name was Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, tragically passed away under controversial circumstances on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.

The former Marlian Music signee departed from the record label in 2022 following internal disputes and allegations of assaults.

The summoning of Naira Marley and Mohbad’s manager has sparked intrigue within the music industry and among fans.

As the House of Representatives seeks to address the issue of Mohbad’s royalties, the outcome of the upcoming hearing could have significant implications for the legal and financial aspects of the entertainment world.
