Some radio stations in Ibadan, Oyo State’s capital, have banned all songs by Afeez Fashola, commonly known as Naira Marley, from playing on their platforms.
According to the radio stations, the decision was made because of the ongoing investigation into the strange death of a Lagos-based artist, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad.
According to the report, the musician died last Tuesday at the age of 27.
Splash 105.5 FM and Agidigbo 88.7 FM were among the radio stations that announced their decision.
Splash FM stated in an internal memo addressed to its workers on Monday that the decision was made due to the delicate nature of the situation.
“In view of the sensitive nature around the death of Mohbad and the criminal procedure the police have commenced, I will urge us all to exercise discretion.
“To this effect, Naira Marley’s songs have become NTBB (Not to be Broadcast) on our stations until further notice. This is with immediate effect,” the statement said.
Agidigbo FM, in its own declaration, announced that it has ceased to air all songs from Marlian Records, owned by Naira Marley.
Agidigbo FM founder Dr. Oriyomi Hamzat made this announcement Monday night.
“From today, all songs from Marlian music are forbidden at Agidigbo.
“We did not say they were the ones who killed him (Mohbad), but all songs from their music label have been henceforth cancelled,” he said.
