A viral video shows Nigerian musician Naira Marley and his late trainee Mohbad engaging in drug use.
Mohbad, a former Marlian Music signee, and Marley were in a room with drugs, weapons, and cash on the table.
The music label’s founder was smoking a blunt while speaking with the ‘Ko Por Ke’ singer, after which he handed him the substance to smoke.
Although the video appeared to be a behind-the-scenes view at a music video, it prompted doubts about Naira Marley’s influence over the musician, who died last Tuesday at the age of 27.
Fans have expressed concern about Mohbad’s plight and the troubles he cried about before and after quitting Marlian Music in 2022, and the new video has sparked speculation that Naira Marley was a bad influence.
@OurDaddy_; Naira Marley is the one spoiling him.. He didn’t want the smoke, he was forced to
@DiianaD_; I’m sure without naira marley, mohbad won’t even have tried smoking at all, I’ve never seen smoke in his hands before
@DiianaD_; Naira marley is a bad influence 🤷♀️
