The House of Representatives has summoned singer Azeez Fashola, known popularly as Naira Marley, to appear before them to address issues regarding the works of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad and ensure that his rights are upheld.

The House, through its Committee on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance, also invited Jiggy Adeoye, Mohbad’s manager.

The purpose of inviting Mohbad’s manager is to make it possible for the lawmakers to participate in an interactive session on October 3.

This is a brave move in the right direction to get the late music sensation the right kind of payment and royalties.

On September 12, Mohbad, a previous signee of Naira Marley’s record label, unfortunately died at the age of 27 in mysterious circumstances.

The House took action on the issue as a result of a motion that Rep. Babajimi Benson (APC-Lagos) sponsored.

Benson expressed concerns regarding the contracts and agreements that artists were frequently forced to sign and called for a revision of the rules governing copyright and the entertainment industry.

Legislators pledged to guarantee fair recompense and royalties for Mohbad’s musical compositions during the topic’s discussion in the plenary on September 26.

The legislators also promised to keep an eye on the current inquiry regarding his passing and the royalties that are being paid to him.
