The House of Representatives has summoned Azeez Fashola, a.k.a. Naira Marley, to appear before it for the musical rights of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba (Mohbad).
The House Committee on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance also invited Mohbad’s manager, Jiggy Adeoye, to appear on October 31.
The House resolution followed the adoption of a motion moved by Babajimi Benson, the lawmaker representing Ikorodu Federal Constituency, Lagos State, on Thursday, October 26.
Benson had called for a review of relevant laws guiding the entertainment industry as well as copyright laws while expressing concerns about the contracts and agreements that entertainers are compelled to sign.
In a letter signed by the committee’s clerk, Yusuf Ibrahim, on October 26 the House said both Naira Marley and Mohbad’s manager were needed to guide the committee on further legislative action.
The former Marlian Music signee, whose real name was Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba aka Mohbad, died on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, in controversial circumstances.
