Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, the fast-rising Nigerian singer better known as Mohbad, is dead.
Joey Ovie, the music executive, confirmed the singer’s demise in a post on X.
“Confirmed. Mohbad is dead. Sad, sad day, RIP,” he wrote, alongside a photo of Mohbad.
Olamide, the rapper and YBNL head honcho, also mourned Mohbad.
It was gathered that Mohbad passed away in the early hours of Tuesday.
The cause of the 27-year-old rapper’s death is, however, yet to be known.
Mohbad is a former artiste of Marlian Records, which is owned by Naira Marley.
But in October 2022, the singer alleged assault by the record label’s head honcho.
Mohbad also claimed members of Marley’s music label assaulted him for requesting a new manager.
In his reaction, Naira Marley alleged Mohbad was “high” when making the assault allegation.
The singer would later terminate his contract with Marlian Records.
Bella Shmurda, the Afropop singer, also revealed how Mohbad attempted to end his life during the rift with Naira Marley.
“At a point, Myself and Mohbad were in an apartment, and he said he wanted to jump from upstairs,” he had said.
“You can’t just keep going under and these people are just forming there’s nothing happening. Something is happening, and it is going to the extreme.”
