Over the weekend, a post on Mohbad’s official Instagram page read, “Before his passing Mohbad was in court to retrieve the majority of his songs and unpaid royalties which were wrongfully held by Marlian Music.

“We will continue the fight to retrieve his catalogue and unpaid royalties so that through these, those he left behind, especially his son; Liam Imole, will be provided for.

“We want #Justicefor Mohbad, and We will appreciate all the support we can get in this fight to retrieve his catalog from Marian Music, as this is the justice that Mohbad was working towards.”
