In a surprising turn of events, Nigerian music artiste Azeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has disclosed that the late rising star, Mohbad, extended an apology to him.
This revelation comes in the wake of a viral video where Mohbad expressed concerns about his safety and suggested that Naira Marley and his Malian group could be held accountable in the event of his demise.
The video raised speculations and triggered a wave of accusations aimed at the Malian Record boss following Mohbad’s untimely passing.
In an interview with Reno Omokri, Naira Marley provided insights into the situation, asserting that he was out of the country when Mohbad made the video.
He emphasized that upon his return, he sought to address the concerns raised by the young musician.
“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,” Naira Marley recounted.
The artiste clarified that he did not facilitate Mohbad’s release, as it was solely handled for another individual known as Zino.
Naira Marley highlighted the context surrounding the video, explaining that it was during Mohbad’s interaction with the NDLEA that he expressed his apprehensions.
Upon meeting Mohbad and engaging in a conversation, Naira Marley recounted the artiste’s response, “I spoke to [him] 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.”
