Mohbad was signed to Marley’s record label, Marlian Music. However, he left the label after less than two years. During his time at the label, Mohbad suffered all forms of abuse which eventually led to his exit last year.
In October 2022, Mohbad accused his former boss and one Sam Larry who is said to be a close confidant of Marley, of assaulting him and destroying some properties belonging to him. The allegations drew a lot of condemnation to Marley, making him and his group furious. He also denied his former signee’s claims, saying he [Mohbad] was intoxicated. Surprisingly, Naira Marley was not arrested.
Furthermore, associates of the Marley had always harassed and threatened Moh. It was reported some time ago that Sam Larry and a few others stormed a location where the late musician and Zlatan Ibile were shooting a music video. According to sources, it was the intervention of Zlatan that prevented the “would-be” attackers from harming the late musician.
Moh himself had once petitioned the Lagos Police Command, telling them of the daily threats he faced from Marley, Sam Larry and the rest of their team, since he left his label. The police, however, did there quota to address the issues.
