Nigerians Tackle Naira Marley Over Last Phone Conversation With Mohbad Before Death
Nigerians have slammed popular singer, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, over a video believed to be the last conversation between him and his late former record label signee, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji, popularly known as Mohbad.
Streetdope News recalls that Mohbad died on September 12 and was buried the next day in Ikorodu, Lagos State.
Following the death of the 27-year-old singer, some Nigerians have called out Naira Marley and some members of Marlian Records, including Sam Larry.
Naira Marley, on Tuesday, in a statement released on his Instagram account, distanced himself from Mohbad’s death.
However, on Wednesday, former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri shared a video of Naira Marley and Mohbad conversing.
During the purported phone conversation, the ‘Yahoo Boy’ crooner said that the late singer mentioned to him about feeling suicidal and had already done a video telling the world to blame Naira Marley and his team for his death.
The video has sparked mixed reactions online, with many questioning Naira Marley’s purpose in recording the conversation while others claimed it could be AI-generated to exonerate himself.
