Nigerian singer, Abiola Ahmed Akinbiyi better known as Bella Shmurda has reacted to Naira Marley’s recent statement debunking allegations that he assaulted the late singer, Mohbad.
Bella Shmurda who is a close friend of the late singer took to his microblogging platform, X to react to Naira Marley’s statement.
The singer asked the Marlian record label boss to go and report himself to the police instead of trying to clear his name.
Meanwhile, Naira Marley finally broke his silence on the circulating rumours that he assaulted his former signee, Mohbad.
The Marlian music record label boss released a statement on his Instagram page and revealed that he had never fought, attacked or bullied Mohbad.
He stated that the rurumoursf the label being a drug cartel are untrue as he isn’t a drug lord, and nor does he belong to any cult or fraternity.
Naira Marley stated that he is dedicated to proving his innocence and cooperating with the authorities to clear my name with sufficient evidence.
Read part of the statement; “In the last few days, there has been a lot of onslaught on my person and reputation globally over the death of my former signee. I have not only been in shock over the death of the deceased whom I considered to be my brother and member of our music family but over the various lies spread and threats against me.
Before I progress further, let me say that as it is traumatic for a lot of people to bear the nearly of Ilori’s death, so it is to me. May his gentle soul continue to rest in peace and may God grant his family the fortitude to bear the inseparable loss.
Permit me to categorically state that I have no hand in the death of Ileriouluwa, either directly or indirectly. It is not unusual in the industry, just like in several other industries to have family friction, even amongst blood relatives. Truly, we had our own share of misunderstandings whilst working together, but the disagreement between us was never to the extent being painted by some hirelings. It never degenerated to the extent of wishing each other death. Even at that, we were resolving our business disputes legally before he passed on”.
