The House of Representatives has summoned controversial singer Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley to appear before it as part of moves to secure compensation and royalties for late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba (Mohbad) for his musical works.

Through its Committee on Justice, Youth, and Legislative Compliance, the House also invited the manager of the late singer Jiggy Adeoye to an interactive session slated to be held on Tuesday, October 31.

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

The House had resolved to wade into the matter following the adoption of a motion moved by Babajimi Benson (APC, Lagos).

Benson had called for a review of relevant laws guiding the entertainment industry as well as copyright laws while expressing concerns about the contracts and agreements that entertainers are compelled to sign.

During the debate on the matter at the plenary session on Thursday, the lawmakers also assured Mohbad’s family of its commitment to secure proper compensation and royalties from his musical works.
