Nigerian music artiste, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has said that late rising star, Mohbad apologised to him after making a video alleging that he [Naira Marley] was after his life.
In a viral footage, Mohbad had told the world that Naira Marley and his Malian group should be held responsible if by any means he died.
And following his mysterious death recently, accusing fingers have been directed at the Malian Record boss.
However, in an interview with Reno Omokri, Naira Marley said he met the young musician after he made the video and has evidence of his apology to him.
“Till today I don’t understand. I tried to get him help when he went out like that. I wasn’t even in the country when he made that video,” Naira Marley said.
“I was out of the country. I’m sure it was during the NDLEA [arrest that he made the video]. Looking at the video again, I was getting information from everybody that was there because like I said, I wasn’t in the country.
“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.
“I didn’t bail Mohbad out anyway. It’s only Zino. So it was that paranoia…Zino was still in the NDLEA when he [Mohbad] made that video. I wasn’t around.
“I was outside Nigeria when he made that video saying if he dies they should hold Naira Marley and the Malians. So when I got back I asked him. When I got back, I met him.
“I spoke to 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.”
