Nigerian street hop singer Mohbad has officially terminated his contract with Naira Marley’s Marlian Music record label.

The singer’s management announced his exit from the record label on Tuesday, October 25, as his legal team released a statement asserting that Mohbad’s exit was as a result of the constant attacks he received, which were orchestrated by Naira Marley, and unpaid royalties since 2019.

The “KPK” crooner’s exit comes weeks after he took to Twitter on October 5, to reveal bloodied bodies, claiming that it was as a result of being assaulted by the Marlian crew, because he requested to have his manager changed.

“Just because I want to change my manager who is their brother, see what they did to me at Marlian House,” he had tweeted, saying “World pls help me oo I’m dying inside.”

Revealing that he was at the hospital for a CT Scan for head impact and chest X-ray as a result of the assault, he added “I’m not high oo cos that is what dey always say just to die down everything.”

He accused Naira Marley of being present during the assault and doing nothing to stop it.

The artiste is also accusing Marlian Music record label of refusing to pay him his royalties from monetised intellectual content and advances as mutually agreed since 2019.

“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;

“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,” the document read.
