We are calling out to musicians and artistes to seek redress by speaking out and taking advantage of the PMAN FCT..
We are poised to put the welfare and the lives of our artiste first and affirm that the death of one artiste affects us all.
“We continue to preach peace and ask that we accommodate each other and strengthen the collaborations with young and upcoming artistes by allowing them the freedom and reach to explore their potentials.
“This is sad yet we know that Mohbad inspired millions of lives through his music and his message of light and peace will continue to be a legacy in the history of nigerian music.
“His Passing is Painful and a huge loss to the entertainment industry, we acknowledge the solidarity of entertainers and well meaning Nigerians and plead for calm and to allow the police and other relevant authorities to conclude their investigations”, the statement read.
