Two radio stations, namely Splash FM 105.5 in Ibadan, Oyo State, and Divine FM 101.3 in Enugu State, have implemented a ban on the airing of songs by Azeez Fashola, also known as Naira Marley, until further notice.
This decision comes in response to the controversy surrounding Naira Marley following the death of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji, popularly known as MohBad.
A presenter at the radio station, Aderonke Adesola, shared this information in a post on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) on Monday.
According to the post, the radio station’s management has designated Naira Marley’s songs as “Not to Be Broadcast” on their station’s frequency.
The post stated, “Good evening team. Given the sensitive nature of Mohbad’s death and the ongoing police investigation, I encourage all of us to exercise discretion.
“As a result, Naira Marley’s songs are now designated as NTBB (not to be broadcast) on our station until further notice. This is effective immediately. Thank you.”
Additionally, Crystal Jane Ogechi, the General Manager of Divine FM in Enugu State, announced the radio station’s decision on Tuesday.
She stated, “Until Mohbad receives the justice he deserves, DIVINE 101.3 FM has joined other radio and TV stations in banning the airing of songs from Marlian Records and Naira Marley songs on DIVINE FM 101.3 Radio.”
