Azeez Adeshina Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has declared his intention to come back to Nigeria and cooperate with the police in their ongoing investigation into the death of his former protege, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, also known as Mohbad.

After the death of Mohbad, Naira Marley faced intense public scrutiny for several weeks. On the evening of September 26, 2023, he took to his Instagram account to release an official statement. In this statement, he emphasized that he is not evading authorities and pledged to provide his own account of the events once he returns.

Within his statement, Naira Marley acknowledged the negative portrayal of his character following Mohbad’s death and emphasized that he played no role in the death of the singer. He also mentioned that he had been out of the country for over a week before Mohbad’s tragic passing.

Naira Marley’s statement read,

“I have been out of the country since the 31st of August 2023 and I’m here to return in light of the police investigation I am making arrangements to return to the country to assist the investigation and give my version of events, I am fully cooperating with the police team and I certainly have no reason to be a fugitive when I have no hand in his death.”

In addition, he reaffirmed his unwavering commitment to the truth, emphasizing that he is wholeheartedly collaborating with the authorities to solve the case. He substantiated his cooperation with compelling evidence aimed at vindicating his reputation.

In his statement, Naira Marley further stated that he bore no responsibility for the singer’s tragic death in any manner, shape, or form.

He said,

“My lawyers are already in touch with the police and government agencies and will support you in every way necessary without a doubt I will honour his memory and I promise to do right by him and his family. I am dedicated to proving my innocence and I am cooperating with the authorities to clear my name with sufficient evidence.”

Naira Marley went on to clarify that he had never engaged in any confrontations or harassment directed towards Mohbad during the artist’s tenure with his label, nor did he do so afterwards. He emphatically emphasized that he had never authorized or instructed anyone to intimidate or cause harm to the late singer while he was alive.

Mohbad had been a part of Naira Marley’s record label until September 2022. Following his unfortunate passing on September 12, 2023, there were speculations and allegations connecting Naira Marley, his associate, Sammy Larry, and his label to the reported harassment and death of Mohbad. But now, Naira Marley has distanced himself from these claims.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were seen together in Los Angeles, displaying affection for each other. This comes shortly after returning from a quick trip to Japan with her children.

Pictures captured by photographers show the couple holding hands and sharing a passionate kiss during a lunch date in the Venice Beach area on Sunday. Ms. Lopez was dressed casually. She wore a beige long-sleeved top, a cream-coloured puffer vest, and loose-fitting jeans.

To stay warm, she bundled up in a light brown scarf. She then finished her casual yet stylish outfit with tinted shades, platform Uggs, silver hoop earrings, and a dark brown handbag slung over her shoulder.

Mr. Affleck, 51, opted for a relaxed look, sporting a black button-down shirt paired with a navy blue jacket and jeans. Completing his casual attire, the Academy Award-winning actor from “Good Will Hunting” added Nike sneakers and Aviator sunglasses. As they waited for their car, Ms. Lopez leaned against a wall, her arms affectionately wrapped around her beau.

With eyes full of admiration, he looked deeply into her eyes before gently leaning in to share a kiss. This tender moment came just a few days after the dedicated mother of twins, Max and Emme, whisked them away on a delightful adventure to Tokyo to celebrate their sweet sixteenth birthdays.

The 54-year-old Jennifer Lopez, her highlighted hair sleeked back in a ponytail, stood beside her partner. She was beaming with a radiant smile as they entered their black BMW and drove off.

The “Maid in Manhattan” actress, who co-parents her children with her former husband, Marc Anthony, with whom she was married from 2004 to 2014, offered her fans a glimpse into the heartwarming getaway through a charming video montage on Instagram.

She captioned the post, “16 🥥🥥 Birthday trip 2024 🤍🤍,” “Happy Birthday to my coconuts I love you.”

Jennifer Lopez also shares parenting duties for Ben Affleck’s children, Violet (18), Seraphina ( 15), and Samuel (11). Affleck shares these children with his former wife, Jennifer Garner.

This adds to what has already been a busy year for Lopez, who recently released her successful ninth studio album, “This Is Me… Now,” earlier this month.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck first crossed paths on the set of the movie “Gigli” in 2001. Just one year later, he presented her with a stunning 6.1-carat pink diamond engagement ring from Harry Winston. While they originally planned to walk down the aisle in 2003, they ultimately chose to postpone their wedding celebration. Their paths diverged as they both went on to marry other people.

However, after nearly two decades, love found its way back to them. They rekindled their romance and officially said “I do” in 2022.

Bella Shmurda Opens Up On Being A Father Again | Fab.ng

Nigerian singer Bella Shmurda recently participated in a documentary by WeTalk Sound. In the documentary, Shmurda spoke candidly about how fatherhood has significantly impacted his life and music career.

He revealed that the birth of his son has motivated him to become a better person and pursue personal growth. Additionally, Shmurda shared his aspirations to build a lasting legacy—one that would make his child proud to have him as a father.

“I think fatherhood inspired me. What’s in my head is ‘Wetin’ this boy go see in the next 10 years?’ I don’t want him to see my old videos, I want him to see the new Bella who is still doing things. I don’t want him to hear ‘history’ like his daddy used to sing. I want to be the type of father that when he turns on the TV, he’d see and then say ‘That’s my daddy’, that’s what I want to be to my child. He’s an inspiration to me,” he said.

In July 2023, Bella Shmurda shared the joyful news of his son’s arrival on his official social media platform. The post, which included a heartfelt message and a photo of his newborn baby, was met with an outpouring of love and congratulations from fans, followers, and fellow celebrities.

However, the announcement also revealed a painful experience Shmurda had endured in 2022. He shared that he had suffered the heartbreaking loss of a child, expressing the emotional toll it had taken on him.

He wrote,

“A few days to the drop of my album last year, I was an emotional and mental wreck. I’d just gotten to the UK where I was scheduled to do some promotional activities when I heard the news that I’d lost the child I was expecting at birth. I got the news that my little boy is here. I’m happy and blessed. What’s lost can never be replaced, but I have another chance, a new lease on life. A new purpose. I’m a new Daddy; DO NOT DISTURB.”

In November 2023, Bella Shmurda was eager to share more about his growing family. He took to his social media platform to post new pictures of his son. Two of the heartwarming photos showcased the adorable child, giving fans a glimpse into Shmurda’s life as a father.

This update followed the initial announcement of his son’s birth in July, which was accompanied by a heartfelt message and well-wishes from many.
