Mohbad’s Management to battle Marlian Music for his Unpaid Royalties

The management team of the late Nigerian rapper and songwriter, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as “Mohbad,” has pledged to continue the battle for the retrieval of the singer’s music catalog and the royalties that were not paid by his former record label, Martian Music. This commitment was conveyed in a statement posted on Mohbad’s verified Instagram account, @iammohbad, on Saturday.

The statement emphasized their current focus on ensuring that Mohbad’s legacy endures, portraying him as he was in his final months: free, resilient, and determined about his future. It was mentioned that prior to his passing, Mohbad had taken legal action to regain ownership of the majority of his songs and the royalties that were withheld by Marlian Music.

The management team affirmed their dedication to carrying on the pursuit for the return of Mohbad’s music catalog and unpaid royalties. This endeavor is intended to provide for those he left behind, particularly his son, Liam Imole. They called for support in achieving #JusticeforMohbad, asserting that this was the justice Mohbad was striving for.

The statement also expressed gratitude for the overwhelming love and support received from the public in the wake of Mohbad’s passing. Fans took to the comments section to pay their respects and express their grief, with many echoing the call for justice for Mohbad. The late singer’s departure from Marlian Music in 2022 was attributed to unpaid royalties dating back to 2019. Mohbad passed away on Tuesday, September 12, at the age of 27.
