During an interview on Hitz FM’s “Daybreak Hitz” with Andy Dosty, Naira Marley spoke favorably about Lasmid’s music and expressed his eagerness to have Lasmid join his Marlian Music record label, alongside artists like Zinoleesky and Mohbad.

However, the much-anticipated signing never materialized, leading to speculation and curiosity about the reasons behind this change of plans. As the mystery surrounding Lasmid’s decision deepened, the music community faced an unexpected tragedy that added further complexity to the situation.
The unexpected and tragic death of MohBad, a former artist associated with Marlian Music, sent shockwaves throughout the music industry, triggering concerns and even accusations. Some speculated that his passing might have been connected to disputes over music rights that allegedly arose following his departure from the record label.
In the aftermath of MohBad’s untimely demise, the perspective on Lasmid’s decision not to sign with Marlian Music took on a new significance.
Many Ghanaians began to view Lasmid’s choice as a fortunate escape, speculating that had he signed with the label, he might have encountered similar challenges and disputes over his music rights, mirroring the alleged issues that MohBad faced during his tenure with Marlian Music.
Lasmid, in response to the tragic news, extended his condolences for MohBad’s passing and alluded to the existence of a collaboration between them that may never see the light of day.
This revelation sparked a surge of interest and emotions among fans. While some have called on Lasmid to release the unreleased collaboration as a tribute to MohBad, others recognize the complexity of the situation and respect Lasmid’s decision, understanding that it involves more than meets the eye.
