Mohbad’s Death: Naira Marley’s Legal Team Threatens to Sue Producer K-Solo for Defamation of Character



By Uche Amunike

Weeks after the death of 27yr old  Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, the legal team of popular artiste and songwriter, Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley has made threats to sue successful record producer, Solomon Oyeniyi, also known as K-Solo, over what they described as the unfounded and malicious accusations made against Naira Marley.

Recall that in a recent interview held on Channels TV’s program, Rubbin Minds,  K-Solo had accused Naira Marley of being involved in the death of Mohbad, who was his former signee and who died on September 12, 2023 at the age of 27.

His words: ‘Naira Marley is involved [in Mohbad’s death]. He cannot tell me he is not involved. He has a hand in his death.’

‘Somebody can’t be under your label, and he is being bullied every day, and you never came out to say anything. And you said you don’t know anything about it.’

‘You’re putting up a statement? Everybody can put up a statement. Naira Marley has an involvement in. He can’t tell me no. Let him come out and wash himself clean and say, ‘I, Naira Marley, I’m not involved in this.’ Then let the police do their due diligence like the English they used’, he stated.

In reaction, the legal team of Naira Marley released a statement titled: ‘Legal Action will Be Initiated Against K-Solo for Defamation of Naira Marley’s Character.’ In the statement, which was signed by the Media Head of the Label, Olamide Akinrimade, the team threatened legal action in order to make it clear that there was a consequence for making unfounded allegations on Marley over Mohbad’s death.

The statement partly read: ‘The legal team representing Naira Marley will be initiating legal action against K-Solo for defamation of character. It is essential to emphasise that making unfounded allegations and false statements can have far-reaching consequences.’

‘Accusations of this nature not only tarnish the image of the accused but also perpetuate baseless claims that have spread like wildfire because elements like K-Solo and others (especially two known actresses) have speared head the campaign of calumny against the person of Naira for reasons best known to them.’

‘In times past, we kept quiet because we wanted to honour the memory of the dead and honour the relationship with him, but we realised many people are setting negative agendas and spreading negative narratives against Naira Marley. We will no longer fold our hands and watch people with negative agendas drag Naira Marley, and neither would we allow them to achieve their aim of declaring him guilty of an offence he did not commit, at all cost’, it stated.

According to the team, anyone who henceforth accuses Naira Marley of being the reason for Mohbad’s death must show concrete proof, not only on social media  but also in the court of law, adding that every lie and rumor against Naira Marley will from now on, be met with severity and the full weight of law.

In the statement, the team maintained that Naira Marley has continuously denied any involvement in Mohbad’s painful demise. The have also denied allegations made by K-Solo, stating that they would however, give him the opportunity to provide evidence and prove his accusation, even though he has not given Naira Marley fair hearing.

The statement also urged every concerned party to keep away from spreading unverified information because, they not only destroy people’s reputations, they also obstruct the truth from emerging.
