A recently circulated throwback video has ignited controversy, featuring Nigerian rapper Naira Marley alongside his late former signee, Mohbad, engaged in smoking in a room.
The video, seemingly captured during the filming of a music video, exposes the two artists in a room where illicit substances, firearms, and cash are conspicuously displayed.
In the video, Naira Marley can be seen smoking a blunt and engaging in conversation with the late 'Ko Por Ke' artist, eventually offering the substance to Mohbad.
This video, surfacing shortly after Mohbad's tragic passing at the age of 27, has raised questions among fans and the public about the extent of Naira Marley's influence on the young artist.
Mohbad, formerly signed to Marlian Music, parted ways with the label in 2022 and had been open about the challenges he faced during and after his association with Naira Marley's camp.
The emergence of this video has heightened concerns about Mohbad's well-being and choices, as well as the potential impact of Naira Marley's influence on him.
Reactions to the video on social media have been mixed, with some attributing Mohbad's actions to Naira Marley's influence, while others express understanding of youthful mistakes.
