Naira Marley, Sam Larry frustrated singer to death – Abosede




Abosede, the mother of late Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly called Mohbad, has alleged that Samson Balogun, popularly called Sam Larry, and Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, frustrated her son to death.

Abosede stated this in an interview with Saturday PUNCH titled, “Uncensored: Mohbad’s mother opens up on her late son, ex-husband, Naira Marley.”

According to her, the late musician never had serenity in his life because Naira Marley and Sam Larry were always getting him into trouble.

“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 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 detailed how the singer showed her a chat with Naira Marley in the middle of the night because he wanted to replace 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.”

However, both Naira Marley and Sam Larry have denied involvement in the singer’s death.

In a statement shared on his Instagram handle on September 26, 2023, Naira Marley said he was “ready to assist the police in unraveling 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,” Marley said.

“It is not unusual in the industry, just like in several other industries, to have family friction, even among 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 that “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 requested that the police should invite her, his father, his wife, Naira Marley, Sam Larry, and Prime Boy to establish who is guilty for the singer’s death.

The ‘Omo ghetto’ crooner passed away on September 12 at the age of 27 in Lagos State.

Following an inquiry by the Lagos State Police Command to determine the cause of his death, Mohbad’s remains were exhumed for examination.

The autopsy results have yet to be revealed, but Naira Marley claims he has been the subject of “all manner of stories” since Mohbad’s death.
