Mohbads death: Radio Stations ban Naira Marley songs
Two popular radio stations in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, Splash 105.5 FM and Agidigbo 88.7 FM, have both reportedly banned all songs from Afeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, on all their platforms.
In separate statements on Monday, the radio stations said the move became expedient following the mysterious death of a Lagos-based musician, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad and the investigation the police have commenced on it.
Splash FM, in its statement, noted that the decision was taken in view of the sensitive nature of the death of the musician.
“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 stations until further notice. This is with immediate effect,” the statement said.
Agidigbo FM, in its own declaration, announced that it has ceased to air all songs from Marlian Records, owned by Naira Marley.
Disclosing this on Monday, Agidigbo FM founder, Dr. Oriyomi Hamzat, said: “From today, all songs from Marlian music are forbidden at Agidigbo.
“We did not say they were the ones who killed him (Mohbad), but all songs from their music label have been henceforth cancelled,” he said.
