Promise Aloba, the mother of Mohbad, the late singer, has pleaded with the federal government to help her “fish out” Naira Marley and also uncover the truth behind her son’s demise.


NAN reports that Aloba spoke on Thursday when Elisha Abbo, the chairman of the house committee on entertainment economy; Iyabo Ojo and Tonto Dikeh, the Nollywood actresses, paid the family a condolence visit in Lagos.

Mohbad’s mum, who spoke in Yoruba language, alleged that Naira Marley, the owner of Marlian Records, is connected to her son’s death.

Mohbad, the street pop singer, died on September 12 and was buried the next day.


He was formerly signed to Naira Marley’s Marlian Records but left the label in 2022.

Aloba alleged that her late son had always complained about serious threats to his life by Naira Marley and some other individuals.

“I know my son, he told me that Naira Marley usually threatened him. Please Nigerians help me to look for him; please have mercy on me; that is all you can do for me,” she said while breaking down in tears.


“I cannot singlehandedly fish him out. Also, he told me the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) gave him some water in a bottle to drink sometime ago. Help me, please.

“My son was always beaten. He mentioned Sam Larry, but I don’t know them. They enslaved my son.

“He was always telling me to guide him so he would not be killed, these were all he was saying until they finally killed him. Please help me.”

On his part, Abbo, a senator, assured Mohbad’s mother of protection and an investigation into the circumstances surrounding his demise.


He also pledged to spearhead the campaign for a creative economy commission.

He said the commission aims to address conflicts within the creative industry, including disputes related to record labels and artist contracts.

“It will also help in preventing situations where individuals resort to self-help,” Abbo said.

The police in Lagos on Thursday announced that it has completed the exhumation of the body of Mohbad to conduct an autopsy as part of further investigation into his death.
