In the wake of the enigmatic demise of Mohbad and the ongoing efforts to unravel the circumstances surrounding his passing, Splash FM 105.5, a radio station situated in Ibadan, Oyo State, has enacted a ban on the broadcast of songs by Azeez Fashola, widely recognized as Naira Marley.

Late ex-signee of Marlian Music artiste, Mohbad.


Aderonke Adesola, a presenter at the radio station, shared this development on X (formerly Twitter).

An internal memorandum from the management of Splash FM clarified that the ongoing police investigation into Mohbad's demise motivated this action.

Given the sensitive nature of Mohbad's passing and the concurrent criminal inquiry, the memo advised staff members to exercise discretion. It explicitly stated that Naira Marley's songs are now categorized as "Not to be Broadcast" on their station until further notice, effective immediately.

The post conveyed, "Good evening team. In view of the sensitive nature around the death of Mohbad and the criminal procedure, the police have commenced, I will urge us all to exercise discretion.

"To this effect, Naira Marley’s songs have become NTBB ( not to be broadcast) on our station till further notice. This is with immediate effect. Thank you.”

Naira Marley has found himself embroiled in controversy following the untimely death of Mohbad at the age of 27.

The talented singer met his demise a year after a contentious parting of ways with the record label owned by singer Naira Marley, stemming from internal disputes and allegations of assaults.
