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.

The House further resolved to monitor the investigation surrounding his death and royalties accruing to him.

In a letter dated October 26, 2023, and signed by the Committee’s Clark Barr. Yusuf Ibrahim, the House said both Naira Marley and Mohbad’s manager were needed to guide the committee on further legislative action.

The letter was routed through the President, Performing Musicians Associations of Nigeria (PMAN).
