Nigerian musician Naira Marley has refuted claim that that DJ Splash was one of the musicians on his record label, Marlian Music.
The claim that DJ Splash was also signed to Marlian Music surfaced amidst controversies trailing the death of Mohbad, a former artist signed to Marlian Music.
DJ Splash’s mother had also reportedly claimed that Naira Marley invited her son to live with him and promised to cover his educational expenses, but ultimately failed to do so, leading to alleged mental health issues for the boy.
She added that Naira Marley eventually failed DJ Splash and alleged that since leaving his house, her son has been “mentally unstable”.
In an interview with Reno Omokiri, Marley refuted claims that DJ Splash was his official DJ or signed to his music label.
He suggested that people had wrongly assumed DJ Splash’s that he had signed the artiste because they were seen together in a photograph.
He added that the DJ was not at his house when he started having challenges with his mental health. He also described the allegations as “lies”.
“DJ Splash was never signed to Marlian Music; I know him as a DJ, but he has never deejayed with me at shows or anything, it is not like he is my DJ. They just gave him the title because I have a picture with him,” he said.
“When whatever happened to him, he was not at my house, and I do not understand where all this is coming from.
“DJ Splash, DJ whatever, I do not understand where it is coming from, that is all lies, they are just bringing out people from nowhere to tell lies.”
