The House of Representatives, through its Committee on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance, has invited singer  Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley and Jiggy Adeoye, Mohbad’s manager to appear before it on 31 October, over the royalties of late Afrobeat singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba (a.k.a Mohbad).

The letter of invitation was dated 26 October and signed by the clerk of the Committee, Yusuf Ibrahim.

Mohbad, was an ex-signee of Naira Marley’s record label, who died at 27 under unclear circumstances on 12 September.

The House’s decision to intervene in the matter was prompted by a motion sponsored by Rep. Babajimi Benson (APC-Lagos).

Benson urged a review of the laws pertaining to the entertainment industry and copyright, expressing concerns about the contracts and agreements that artistes were often compelled to sign.

During the debate on the matter at the plenary session on Sept 26, the lawmakers had expressed their commitment to ensuring proper compensation and royalties for Mohbad’s musical works.

The lawmakers also pledged to monitor the ongoing investigation into his death and the royalties accruing to him.

This was to provide insights into the situation and guide the committee on potential legislative action.

The letter was routed through the President of the Performing Musicians Associations of Nigeria.(www.naija247news.com).
