Mohbad Naira Marley rift and Marlian Music exit
Newsone recalls that late Mohbad’s management announced his exit from the record label on Tuesday, October 25, as his legal team released a statement asserting that Mohbad’s exit was as a result of the constant attacks he received, which were orchestrated by Naira Marley, and unpaid royalties since 2019.

“In contravention of the terms of the arrangement between our client and yourself, you have failed to pay any advances as mutually agreed by both parties since 2019 till date;
“You have also failed to pay all royalties due our client from all his intellectual property works monetized, released and utilised by you from 2019 till date,” the document read.
