MohBad: I Narrowly Escaped With My Life, Ex-Marlian Music Signee Recounts Ordeal




Nigerian dancer Idowu Smart Emmanuel, aka Lil Smart, has disclosed his ordeal in the hands of his former record label owner, Afeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, founder of Marlian Records.

In a live video shared on Tiktok Friday, Lil Smart, while answering a question from host Arowealth, alleged that the victimisation and assault rumours trailing Marlian Records were all true.

Speaking on the demise of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka MohBad, Lil Smart said MohBad’s silence played a role in his death.

According to Lil Smart, if the deceased had spoken up on the many attacks he was allegedly subjected to by Samson Eletu, aka Sam Larry, a close associate of Marlian Records boss Naira Marley, he probably would still be alive.

Speaking on rumours surrounding Eletu’s numerous assaults and attacks on former Marlian Records signees, Lil Smart recounted his ordeal in Eletu’s hands.

He disclosed that he narrowly escaped with his life after some masked men, believed to be Marlian boys, stormed his home.

Lil Smart also said he had tapes to prove this, adding that one of the boys who stormed his home was none other than a popular artiste known to be a friend to one of the Marlian Records boys, Zinoleesky.

Speaking in pidgin English, Lil Smart began, “It’s because MohBad did not speak up, but I did every time they attacked me.

“Some months ago, Marlian boys and some Abokis stormed my home in Agungi, Lagos state, masked up. Thankfully, I saw them beforehand and escaped that day.”

On how he could tell the masked men who stormed his home were Marlian boys, Lil Smart said, “These are people I have lived with. I knew the minute I saw them on the CCTV camera. I can present the CCTV tape.

“It was the period Seyi Vibez and Zinoleesky had some issues. (Zinoleesky accused Seyi Vibez of stealing his style. Seyi Vibez responded by calling Zinoleesky a ‘Marlian Record Slave’ who is not on his level).

“I had to leave my home and at some point even left the state to Abuja. I have since abandoned that house.

“When I returned to Lagos, Sam Larry arrested me for petitioning the police over his issue. He said I lied in my petition and had me arrested. I bailed myself with N500,000.

“They also threatened me with a lawsuit.

On how the arrest came about, Lil Smart said, “I had gone for a meeting at the beach with Magnito when I spotted Sam Larry. I tried to say hello, but he asked me not to.

“So I sat down and continued my meeting with Magnito. Not long after, I saw plain-clothes policemen who arrested me illegally.

“They took me to Ilaso police station, but because they had no evidence to detain me, I was then transferred to Lagos Island Police station where many of Sam Larry’s insider police are.

“They claimed that I lied against Sam Larry.

“I was threatened with jail time for the weekend or pay N500,000. I agreed to bail myself and gave them N500,000.

“I was also asked to pay N500,000 for a lawyer, which I refused. I have evidence to prove all of this,” Lil Smart said.

Why I Bear My Mother’s Name – Asake



Popular singer Ahmed Ololade, known professionally as Asake, has opened up on the reason he is using his mother’s name as his stage name.

He explained that while he was in a cultural group people used to refer to him as Omo Asake because his mother’s name is Asake.

He explained that later the ‘Omo’ was removed and he was simply called Asake.

The singer said he found it cool and decided to go by the name.

According to him, “My stage name is actually my mother’s. While I was in the cultural group, people used to call me ‘omo Asake,’ which means child of Asake in Yoruba. And after a while, it just stuck. People stopped adding the ‘omo’ and left ‘Asake.’ I thought it was cool and decided to go by it.”

Asake disclosed this in Pause Magazine’s Autium 2023 edition.

He also said he would continue to sing in Yoruba.

“It is very important to me, and I am not going to lose it. It is what has brought me this far, and I continue to keep it that way,” he said

How Bullying Affected My Social Skills – Kizz Daniel



Nigerian singer, Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe, popularly known as Kizz Daniel, has revealed how bullying suffered when he was a child affected his social skills.

The singer said that he was chubby while growing up, and other children would take advantage of his weight to bully and make fun of him.

The ‘Buga’ crooner made this known in the latest episode of the Afrobeats Podcast, hosted by Adesope Olajide.

He said, “I have built a world of my own in my head since I was little. Because growing up, I was a fat kid. I was chubby. So, I don’t go out because the kids in the area make fun of me. They called me orobo (someone who is fat). And they bullied me. So I always stay indoors.

“During that time that I always stayed indoors, I’d already built this fantasy world in my head. In the world that I have built in my head, I’m very comfortable in that space.

“So, I reintroduced myself to the world after I lost weight; I lost all forms of social skills. I don’t know how to communicate. I don’t know how to socialise with people.”
