"I saved Mohbad from himself" -- Naira Marley

Azeez Fashola, better known as Naira Marley and the head of Marlian Label, has revealed the role he played in keeping Mohbad alive prior to his death a few weeks back.

In an interview with political influencer and rights activist, Reno Omokri, the leader of the Marlian music crew, discussed a range of topics, where he opened up on his willingness to return to Nigeria to clear his name from the murder allegations pinned on him.

The artist asserted that he is determined to confront the accusations against him, maintaining that numerous individuals have been influenced by negative media portrayals of his character.

He emphasized that his return to Nigeria hinged on the assurance of his safety by law enforcement authorities.

When asked if he would consider returning to Nigeria under the condition of police-provided security, Naira Marley responded, “100 per cent, if they can guarantee my safety, I will be there.”

In the same interview, Naira Marley also disclosed troubling information about Mohbad’s mental health struggles prior to the artiste’s death.

He revealed an incident where he received a distress call from Mohbad’s girlfriend while he was in the United States.

According to Naira Marley, Mohbad had locked himself in a restroom and expressed suicidal thoughts.

Naira Marley recounted his efforts to console and support Mohbad during this distressing episode.

He stated,

“There was another time when I was in America, and his girl called me to say he locked himself in the toilet and he wanted to kill himself or something like that.

“So, I called him from there and recorded the conversation, asking him:

“‘Why did you want to kill yourself? You are a king, if your family is stressing you out (because this time, he was with his family and all his family was around him), just tell them to chill, you can do what you want to do, do not stress yourself, if you kill yourself now, what do you want people to say?'”
