The House of Representatives summoned the controversial singer Azeez Fashola, Naira Marley, on Thursday in an attempt to gain the musical rights to the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, commonly known as Mohbad.

Jiggy Adeoye, the manager of Mohbad, has also been invited to testify before the House Committee on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance on October 31.

Mohbad, a former signee of Naira Marley’s record company, died on September 12, 2023, in an unexplained manner. The Lagos State Government ordered a coroner’s investigation into the singer’s death, who was 27 years old.

Congressman Babajimi Benson, who represents the Ikorodu Federal Constituency in Lagos State, presented a motion that resulted in the House resolution being passed on Thursday.

Benson emphasized that, in order to protect artists’ copyrights and royalties, the laws governing the entertainment sector need to be reviewed.
