MOHBAD: Ekiti Fresh FM Bans Naira Marley Songs

A privately owned radio broadcast station, Fresh FM 106.9 FM, Ado in Ekiti State, announced on Tuesday morning that it has banned the playing of any songs by Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, from airing on the station till further notice.

The radio station made the announcement in a post shared on its Instagram handle @freshfm1069adoekiti and signed by its Head of production and Music Content, Oluwaseunfunmi Williams.

The ban was following the death of Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Oladimeji, better known as MohBad, and criticism surrounding Naira Marley and his friend, Sam Larry.

Another radio broadcast station, Splash FM 105.5 Ibadan, Oyo state, had also banned the playing of songs by Naira Marley, on Monday.

Recall that Mohbad, who was a former signee of Naira Marley at Marlian Records, died at the age of 27 last Tuesday.

“Following the public outcry from the general public trialing the death of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (Mohbad), the alleged victimisation from different videos going viral and the involvement of members of his previous record label (Marlian records), fresh 106.9 fm has suspended the airplay of all songs and contents under the banner of Marlian Records,” it said.

The Lagos State Police Command, on Monday, set up a special investigative team to probe the death of Mohbad and is expected to submit an interim report within two weeks.

A document signed by the spokesperson of Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, revealed the team consisting of 13 members, is “to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of the victim, identify witnesses, culprits if any and any person that will be helpful to the investigative process and deploy processes and other technological tools to aid the investigative course in line with the relevant provisions of the Nigeria Constitution and the State Laws,”.
