Nigerian music sensation, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, famously known as Naira Marley, has revealed that late singer, Mohbad, extended an apology to him after releasing a video in which he alleged that Naira Marley was a threat to his life.
In a widely circulated video, Mohbad publicly expressed his concerns, insinuating that Naira Marley and his Malian group could be held accountable if anything unfortunate were to happen to him.
Following the tragic and untimely demise of Mohbad, speculations began to grow, with some pointing accusatory fingers at the head of Malian Records.
However, in an interview with Reno Omokri, Naira Marley disclosed that he had a personal meeting with the young musician shortly after the video’s release.
He asserted that he possesses concrete evidence of Mohbad’s sincere apology to him.
“Till today I don’t understand. I tried to get him help when he went out like that. I wasn’t even in the country when he made that video,” Naira Marley said.
“I was out of the country. I’m sure it was during the NDLEA [arrest that he made the video]. Looking at the video again, I was getting information from everybody that was there because like I said, I wasn’t in the country.
“I kind of sent someone to the NDLEA before I got back. When I got back the next day, they said Mohbad was not there. They said Mohbad wasn’t among the people arrested.
“I didn’t bail Mohbad out anyway. It’s only Zino. So it was that paranoia…Zino was still in the NDLEA when he [Mohbad] made that video. I wasn’t around.
“I was outside Nigeria when he made that video saying if he dies they should hold Naira Marley and the Malians. So when I got back I asked him. When I got back, I met him.
“I spoke to trying to find out what was wrong but he said he didn’t understand and apologised. Yes. He apologised. I have a video on that.”
