The mother of the late rising Nigerian musician, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, known as Mohbad, has broken her silence regarding her son’s tragic passing. In a video circulating on the internet, she expressed her belief that her son’s death was not a result of divine fate but rather a deliberate act.
Speaking passionately in Yoruba, Mohbad’s mother accused someone of taking her son’s life, shedding light on the torment he endured since his association with the famous singer and rapper, Azeez Adeshina Fashola, better known as Naira Marley, the owner of Marlian Music, the record label that once signed Mohbad.
She vehemently dismissed claims that her son was mentally ill, stating that there was no evidence to support such allegations. She further clarified that Mohbad had been in good health before his untimely demise, contrary to some reports.
With tears in her eyes, she pleaded for justice, warning of dire consequences for those responsible for her son’s suffering and ultimate death. Her heartfelt plea extended to their families, wishing them the same pain they had caused her.
She shared poignant details about her son’s last days, highlighting the fear and distress he experienced due to alleged threats and violence. She revealed that her son often canceled show appearances because of the constant fear of confrontations with Naira Marley and his crew.
These emotional revelations from Mohbad’s grieving mother have intensified the public’s interest in the circumstances surrounding his death and raised questions about the responsibilities of those involved.
The tragic death of Mohbad has brought to light disturbing allegations of violence and abuse. Mohbad had previously aired his grievances on social media, citing issues within the Marlian Music family. He claimed threats to his life and made allegations of assault against him, involving Naira Marley and his associates.
These allegations gained attention, including a reported petition to the Nigeria Police Force, which went unanswered. The untimely passing of Mohbad has renewed concerns about the impact of such allegations within the Nigerian music industry.
In addition to Mohbad’s case, former Marlian Music Record label dancer, Lil Smart, has also expressed fears for his safety, revealing that two former colleagues allegedly suffered mental health issues as a result of their association with Naira Marley. These revelations have brought attention to the need for transparency and accountability within the Nigerian music industry.
