Nigerian singer Naira Marley has stated that he will return to Nigeria for the ongoing investigation into the death of his former signee, Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, if the police can guarantee his safety.
The Marlian Music boss made this statement during a recent interview with Reno Omokri, who inquired whether he is willing to come back to Nigeria.
“100% if they can guarantee my safety. There are a lot of angry men that don’t want me there. They know the truth but they have been poisoned by the media. If they can guarantee my safety, I will be there”.
Speaking on the videos of Mohbad being assaulted and claims that he had a hand in the attacks, Naira Marley said,
“There is no truth whatsoever. Even if you look at his police statement, he never mentioned Naira Marley involved. I do not have any issue whatsoever with him. I have never instructed anybody to touch him. I have never touched him. You will never see a video of me touching him. I have never sent anybody to touch him. That is just lies.”
He further stated that Mohbad was very paranoid and that he paid for the late singer to undergo brain scans, but Mohbad refused to go through with the process, stating that his parents understood his condition better and will treat him.
“I did pay for a lot of scans and he that that is what he wanted to do, get scanned and I paid for a lot of them. Like I said he is a little bit paranoid. I was trying to take it easy, trying to find out what’s wrong because remember, he had already made a video to sif anything happened to him, it’s Naira Marley. So I was just trying to find the best help for him. He did scan. I also spoke about if he can travel out to check properly. Then he said it is his mum and dad that will understand what was wrong and then his mum and dad said they wanted to take him for treatment, they want to take him to go look after him,” he said.
The controversial singer also denied claims that ailing disc jockey, DJ Splash, was signed to his label.
“DJ Splash was never signed to Marlian music. He is a DJ. He has never DJ’d with me on a show. They just gave him a title because I have a picture with him. When whatever happened to him happened to him, he was not at my house.”
