Naira Marley, Sam Larry Frustrated Mohbad Till He Died – Late Singer’s Mother


March 23, (THEWILL)- The mother of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, Abosede, has alleged that Samson Balogun, aka Sam Larry, and Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, frustrated her son to death.

Naira Marley was MohBad’s record label boss until they fell out and MohBad decided to leave the label.

According to her, the late singer did not experience peace throughout his lifetime because the duo of Naira Marley and Sam Larry always got him into one problem or another.


“Mohbad did not know peace throughout his lifetime. He was always going from one problem to another in the hands of Naira Marley and Sam Larry. His manager was Naira Marley’s brother, and I did not like him.

“Every time I went there, I always told Mohbad to stay away from him, yet he was always sleeping on Mohbad’s bed. I told Mohbad to keep away from everyone associated with Naira Marley and should not work with them anymore. I had always been involved in my son’s life. Every curse that Naira Marley rains on me will return to him,” she said.

Speaking further, she narrated how Mohbad told her of a conversation with Naira Marley in the middle of the night because he wanted to change his manager and how his ex-signee boss brought out something he wanted him to take, adding, “At that moment, Mohbad was scared, and he ran to the bathroom, from where he called me. I then called my pastor, who asked us to pray.

“Sam Larry beat Mohbad, complaining that he owed him money, but that is not true. My son confided in me. Naira Marley beat him up one time and he ended up in the hospital. We had to use hot water to massage his body and he could not talk for two days because he was seriously beaten. He even developed hypertension.

“When Mohbad recovered from the sickness, Naira did not want him back in Marlian Music. He said he was spoiling their name, and Mohbad also did not want to go back. I went with the father to plead with Naira. That was the first time I went to the house. It was Joseph who was always going there. I want justice for my son.”

Meanwhile, both Naira Marley and Sam Larry have denied involvement in Mohbad’s death.

Naira Marley, in a statement shared on his Instagram handle on September 26, 2023, said he was ready to assist the police in unravelling the circumstances surrounding the death of his former signee.

“Permit me to categorically state that I have no hand in the death of Ilerioluwa, either directly or indirectly.

“It is not unusual in the industry, just like in several other industries, to have family friction, even amongst blood relatives.

“In light of the police invitation, I am making arrangements to return to the country to assist the investigation and give my version of the events,” Marley said, adding: “I am fully cooperating with the Police team and I certainly have no reason to be a fugitive when I have no hand in his death.”

However, the late singer’s mother called on the police to invite her, Mohbad’s father, his wife, Naira Marley, Sam Larry, and Prime Boy to question them to determine who is guilty among them.

Mohbad died on September 12 at the age of 27 in Lagos State.

Following an investigation by the Lagos State Police Command to unravel the cause of his death, Mohbad’s remains were exhumed for an autopsy.

The autopsy results have not yet been released but Naira Marley said he has been the target of stories since Mohbad’s death.
