Street hop singer Mohbad has officially terminated his contract with Naira Marley’s Marlian Music record label, alleging unpaid royalties over the period of three years as well as physical assault.
The singer’s management announced his exit from the record label on Tuesday, October 25, in a legal statement.
According to the letter, Naira Marley had through Marlian Music, failed to pay Mohbad all royalties for music he made throughout his time with the record label since he joined the label in 2019.
The letter also cited cases of physical assault against Mohbad which had “caused grievous bodily harm” and was a threat to Mohbad’s life.
The notice further demanded a total account of digital sales of Mohbad’s catalogue as well as payment of the monetary value.
It also issued the label seven days to hand over the singer‘s catalogue of songs under the label.
This comes a few weeks after Mohbad alleged that he was beaten up at the Marlian House after he went there to request that his manager be changed.
He shared photos of his injured body as a result of the assault and also a video of how he was beaten up.
In a live video, Naira Marley claimed that Mohbad has a history of getting intoxicated, which affects his emotions and actions.
He also added that all problems would be resolved amicably.
However, Mohbad disclosed that the record label is fond of accusing him of being under the influence whenever there is a dispute.
