More troubles for Naira Marley as two major music stations, Soundcity and MTV Base, have removed Naira Marley’s songs from their playlists.
This decision follows the artist’s suspected involvement in Mohbad’s terrible death.
Those who have been following Naira Marley and Mohbad’s relationship may not be surprised by the news.
Mohbad, who had previously worked with Naira Marley’s Marlian Records label, left the label in 2022. Tensions between the two artists have since risen, resulting in public spats.
Soundcity and MTV Base’s decision to pull Naira Marley’s songs from their playlists is a solidarity move in response to the ongoing controversies.
While they haven’t explicitly stated the reasons behind the decision, it’s clear that the controversy surrounding the artist played a role in their choice
Recall that TheNewsGuru.com had reported that a private radio station Fresh FM Ekiti has also joined the ranks in discontinuing the play of Naira Marley’s songs. They’ve taken a stand, urging other stations to follow suit.
For the past week, Naira Marley has also experienced a noticeable drop in his social media followers. His followers count, which stood at 7.5 million at the time of the news of Mohbad’s passing, has since decreased to 6.9 million.
