Harrysong, a singer under the alias Harrison Tare Okiri, claims that his previous record label tormented and abused him to the point of death.

The claim was made by the ‘Reggae/Blues’ crooner who was a former signee of E Money’s Five Star Music via an insta story post on Monday, September 18, while offering his condolences on the demise of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba aka Mohbad.

His remark follows almost a week-long of public fury and a torrent of condolences as well as call for justice for Mohbad, who passed away on Tuesday at the age of 27.

Recounting his experience with his former record label, Harrysong said: “If not for the grace of God with the help of some very few good men I would have also died in the hands of my former label.

“The torment, attacks, abuses and operations back to back, just because I have served and wanted to move out and grow a little for myself.

“It was hell for me, the general public believed everything they said about me then, fans, supporters show promoters bullying me everywhere.

“In fact, one of my friends said he will buy drinks, celebrate if I die of hunger and depression.”

However, he admitted his life was preserved courtesy a few individuals that supported him and refused to be dissuaded by the falsehood being propagated against him during those difficult moments.

He stated: “I’m alive today just for the few that stood by me because they know the true story and refused to be influenced by lies just to kill an innocent man.”

The 42-year-old singer warned record label owners to desist from involvement in contentious practices likely to resort to the killing and destruction of young talents.

He added: “Record labels should stop this do or die thingy. Killing and destroying young talents just because they want to prove label power and supremacy. #justiceformohbad.”
