Following the unexpected and contentious death of emerging star Mohbad, the Nigerian entertainment industry has shifted its focus to Naira Marley, a Nigerian street artist.
Amidst the flood of accusations and speculations linking Naira Marley to Mohbad’s untimely demise, Nigerian actress Esther Nwachukwu has come forward to defend him.
Esther Nwachukwu has voiced her defense of Naira Marley, emphasizing that his only wrongdoing was providing assistance and support to Mohbad when he was an up-and-coming artist.
She boldly asserted that Naira Marley did not cause Mohbad’s death and criticized Nigerians for taking things to the extreme.
Esther expressed that Naira Marley, like any human being, had regular human issues with Mohbad prior to his death, but it did not imply his involvement in the tragedy.
While Naira Marley has faced significant criticism from both celebrities and the general public, Esther’s vocal support has sparked surprising conversations within the entertainment community.
The controversy surrounding Mohbad’s death has given rise to various theories and allegations. Initial reports suggested that Mohbad passed away due to complications from an ear infection, but subsequent evidence and videos have raised suspicions of foul play.
One video depicted Sam Larry, Naira Marley’s aide, physically assaulting Mohbad, leading to questions about the circumstances surrounding his death.
Prior to his demise, Mohbad openly discussed his strained relationship with Marlian Records, the record label founded by Naira Marley.
This revelation further fueled speculation surrounding his death.
In response to these allegations and controversies, Naira Marley issued a statement expressing his intention to uncover the truth behind Mohbad’s passing. He referred to Mohbad as a brother and expressed being “shattered and heartbroken” over his loss.
However, a recent statement from Mohbad’s team contradicts Naira Marley’s claims of a friendly relationship. They released a statement revealing unpaid royalties owed to Mohbad by Marlian Records, as well as Mohbad’s initiation of legal action against the label before his tragic demise.
