Tiwa Savage’s estranged husband, Teebillz, has tendered a public apology for his controversial statements on singer Mohbad’s tragic death.
Naijahits reports that Mohbad, who was a former signee of the Marlian Record label owned by Naira Marley died on Tuesday September 12 2023.
Following the controversies surrounding the development, Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry, have been widely accused of having a hand in Mohbad’s sudden death.
Despite denying the allegations, songs by Marley and his record label artists have been taken off the playlists of many Nigerian broadcast stations and some international music channels like MTV Base.
Reacting to the development via his Instagram page, Teebillz defended Naira Marley and Zinoleesky, stating that “Marley believed and invested in Mohbad’s music career when none of the after death advocates of love did”.
Teebillz’s defense had sparked outrage among many Nigerians, who took to social media to express their disapproval.
However, it appears that the online backlash has prompted a change of heart by the talent manager as he expressed regret for any offense caused and clarified that he did not intend to undermine people’s feelings or opinions.
In another post on his Instagram page, he said: “I’m sincerely sorry for the insensitivity of my earlier post! I don’t mean to undermine anyone’s feelings or opinions.
“I just rather be of help to this young man than judging him based on association alongside being a product of his environment. MENTAL HEALTH played a major role in MOHBAD’s last days whether you agree with me or not! ZINO is definitely feeling the impact too mentally now!!! My heart also goes out to SOLID STAR.”
