House of Reps Summons Naira Marley Over Mohbad Controversy

House of Reps Summons Naira Marley Over Mohbad Controversy

In a significant move aimed at addressing concerns related to the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, and ensuring the protection of his rights, the House of Representatives has taken action. They have done so through their Committee on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance, which has also extended an invitation to Jiggy Adeoye, Mohbad's manager. This invitation is for an interactive session scheduled for November 3.

This action is a strong step forward in seeking proper compensation and royalties for the late music sensation. Mohbad, a former artist signed under Naira Marley's record label, tragically passed away at the age of 27 under unclear circumstances on September 12.

The House's decision to get involved in this matter was prompted by a motion put forth by Rep. Babajimi Benson (APC-Lagos). Benson called for a review of the laws concerning the entertainment industry and copyright, expressing concerns about the contracts and agreements that artists are often compelled to sign.
