Street pop artiste, Naira Marley, born Azeez Fashola, has lost half of a million followers on photo and video sharing app, Instagram, one week after the mysterious death of former signee Promise ‘Mohbad’ Aloba.

As of Tuesday morning, the day of the passing of Mohbad, Naira Marley had 7.5 million followers on Instagram but the number began to drop after footages documented the series of harassment and maltreatment the deceased suffered at his hands and that of his allies, including Sammy Larry.

More than 500,000 people have unfollowed the ‘Issa Goal’ crooner as of press time on Monday, bringing the number of followers down to seven million in what seemed like a coordinated action by the aggrieved netizens.

No evidence yet has directly placed Naira Marley as the killer of Mohbad but clips which have been trending on social media after the latter died last week Tuesday have done little to spare the singer from the wrath of the majority of grieving music fans, who are requesting for an investigation.

However, police on Monday officially began an official investigation into the circumstances surrounding the singer’s death. The deceased’s father, family members and witnesses were with the Lagos state commissioner of police for the commencement of inquiry.
