Award-winning Ghanaian rapper Elorm Adablah, known well as EL has opined on bullying and gatekeeping in the entertainment industry.

The ‘Koko’ hitmaker said bullying does occur to some singers in the entertainment industry, noting that he has experienced it himself.

Speaking on Accra-based Asaase Radio’s ‘Between the Hours’ show on Tuesday, September 19, the one-time VGMAs’ Artist of the Year condemned the alleged mistreatment of late Nigerian singer Mohbad.

“It does happen to a lot of artistes— there’s this type of gatekeeping that goes on, there’s this type of bullying that goes on. I’ve experienced it but it was not as bad as Mohbad’s,” he said.

Mohbad was reported dead on Tuesday, September 12, at the age of 27 without any known cause.

Fans and music lovers have since been expecting a foul play, specifically blaming Marlian Records CEO Naira Marley who is alleged to have bullied the late artist when he was under his tutelage.

Some youths have taken to social media and on the streets protesting and demanding that the perpetrators be brought to book under the hashtag #Justice4Mohbad.
