A joint committee of the House of Representatives has summoned Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, to testify about the late Afrobeat artist, Ilerioluwa Aloba, alias Mohbad’s royalties.
The joint committee, which includes the committees on Youth, Justice, and Legislative Compliance, has requested Naira Marley and the late singer’s legal team to testify before it on October 31.
Yusuf Ibrahim, the Committee’s clerk, signed the letter of invitation on October 26.
Mohbad, a former signee of Naira Marley’s record company, died on September 12 at the age of 27 under mysterious circumstances.
Naira Marley has also been accused of bullying or ordering the late singer’s harassment; however, authorities have found additional individuals in connection with the late singer’s murder.
He handed himself into police earlier this month and was taken into jail for questioning and other investigation actions.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, the House agreed to investigate the singer’s death after a motion by Babajimi Benson (APC, Lagos).
The Committee’s mandate was to ensure that the late singer’s family received all of the rights to his works.
The MPs stated in the letter that the contact is to ensure that the family of the later singer receives what is owed to them.
“The House Committees on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance invite you and the legal team of MOHBAD for an interactive meeting session as regards a referral received being a resolution of the House of Representatives during their plenary session on Tuesday 26th September 2023 with respect to the circumstances surrounding the royalties and other benefits of Mohbad and to ascertain the level of your interaction with other relevant copyright organizations, such information will guide the committee on further legislative action.
“In view of the above, you are kindly invited for an interactive session with the chairman, Committee on Justice, Youth and legislative compliance scheduled as follows,” the letter reads.

She added that she like his tracks because of his extraordinary ability to convey properly the lyrics in his rhymes.
Piesie Esther named Sarkodie’s song “Countryside,” which featured Black Sherif, as one of her favourites.

Wendy Shay donates educational materials to Weija Presbyterian Primary School
Wendy Asiamah Addo, also known as Wendy Shay, provided teaching and learning materials to students at the Weija Presbyterian Primary and Junior High School in the Greater Accra Region on Monday, November 20, 2023, through her organisation Shay Foundation.
Branded exercise books, newly made school uniforms, detergents, and refreshing drinking water were among the kind donations.
This charitable deed, which honoured International Children’s Day, demonstrates Wendy Shay’s dedication to encouraging student access to critical educational resources.
Speaking to the students and staff of the school, the ‘Bedroom Commando’ crooner said, “Shay Foundation is a nonprofit organisation that is committed to seeing to the welfare of both young and old. The organisation aims to support the educational needs of the community. Our main mission is to provide equitable access to quality education for underserved communities. It’s sad to see people drop out of school because they do not have the proper materials. Education is the key to the future, and we must do everything possible to make sure that every child has access.”
The acclaimed singer welcomed kindred spirits with open arms, pushing them to band together and make a lasting influence on the foundation’s noble cause.
Wendy Shay ensured that, in addition to educational contributions, entertainment had a role in the donation ceremony, exciting students with live performances of some of her favourites.
For the past three years, the Shay Foundation has been pursuing these humanitarian activities with zeal.
