Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely recognized as Mohbad, was a talented singer who passed away. According to Joseph Aloba, Mohbad’s father, his ex-wife once presented him with an ultimatum, asking him to choose between Mohbad and her.
This was Aloba’s clarification of a line from the song “Sorry” by Mohbad.
While explaining the lyrics further, Aloba revealed that his relationship with her was complex.
He claimed that because he had chosen Mohbad above her, she had left the family.
“The stepmother told me one day, ‘Choose me or your son.’ I chose my son (Mohbad) and she packed her loads and left. I and the lady were together for more than seven years. I married her around 2005. That stepmother did not want me to send Mohbad to school, and I chose my son. And she decided to leave,” Aloba said while speaking exclusively with Saturday PUNCH.
Famous9ja news reports that Mohbad died at the age of 27, on September 12 and was buried the next day.
Circumstances leading to his death have yet to be unravelled. However, the Lagos State Police Command has begun investigation into the case.
