Popular Nigerian comedian, Oluwaseyitan Aletile, professionally known as Seyi Law, has warned record label owners in the country against endangering the lives and careers of signees who decide to exit their franchise.

The comic actor stated this following the death of former Marlian Music signee, Mohbad, who died on Tuesday, barely a year after his controversial split from the Naira Marley-owned record label.

“I remember when Ruggedman spoke about Naira Marley. Many celebrated the attack on him in London. Today, we are demanding accountability from Naira Marley. Police should do their work.
