Mohbad Terminates Contract With Naira Marley’s Marlian Records
Recently, his legal team served Marlian Record Company with a letter of termination alleging assault and battery.
The termination notice, issued on Tuesday, accuses the Marlian boss of orchestrating constant attacks against Mohbad.
Furthermore, the documents claim that Mohbad is owed advances and royalties from 2019.
The letter titled “Termination Notice” read:
“We are solicitors to Promise Alba Oladimeji professionally known as Mohbad, hereinafter referred to as our client. Our Client has reliably informed us of the following facts;
“2. That you, Azeez Fashola professionally known as Nara Marley entered into an arrangement with our client as ‘Marlians Entertainment Limited’ sometime in 2019, wherein you released and monetized songs made by our client from the time of the arrangement till date;
“3. During the period of this arrangement you orchestrated and carried out violent physical attacks on our client, causing grievous bodily harm and threat to the life of our client.
“4. In contravention of the terms of the arrangement between our client and yourself, you have failed to pay any advances as mutually agreed by both parties since 2019 till date;
“5. You have also failed to pay all royalties due our client from all his intellectual property works monetized, released and utilised by you from 2019 till date.
“6. That due to the direct contravention of the terms of agreement, as well as the criminal acts of assault and battery against our client, he has decided to terminate the arrangement effective from the 7 of October, 2022
“7. Sequel to this termination we therefore demand the following:
The logs and records of the digital sales of all songs by our client released and utilized during this period (2019 – till date) and payment of the monetary valve in respect thereof due to our client within 7 (seven) days of your receipt of this letter.
The immediate handover of our client’s entire catalogue of songs released prior and during the arrangement with you.
“Please accept the assurances of our professional regards as we anticipate your immediate cooperation.”
As of the filing of this report, no statement has been issued by Naira Marley or the Marlian Music Record Label.
On October 6, the singer took to his Twitter account to recount how he was allegedly assaulted by his record label owners.
A series of tweets by @mohbad sheds some light on the attack that had occurred, in which Mohbad and his followers were assaulted right inside the Marlian house.
He clarified that while they were being assaulted, Naira Marley was present. In fact, Mohbad said he “coordinated some of the attack” and instructed the boys to beat them up.
