The late rapper, singer, songwriter, ‘Mohbad’

Nigerian street hop singer and former rapper under Naira Marley’s Marlian Music record label, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad is dead.

Mohbad died in the early hours of today, Tuesday, September 12, 2023.

According to PulseNG, the rapper sadly passed away from an ear infection.

Sources from the singer’s team told the news platform that he took a trip to the hospital in the early hours of Tuesday, September 12, for treatment, after which he was administered an injection.

In a chat with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, another singer and friend to the late Mohbad, Bella Shmurda said Mohbad had once attempted to commit suicide during his ordeal but was prevented by friends.

He said, “There was a time, me and Mohbad were in an apartment and Mohbad was like he wanted to jump from the upstairs because of the issues he was having with his record label.

“We held him by the window. Mohbad had almost jumped. It was his girlfriend that entered the room and saw him sitting down at the window.”

Mohbad had been a rising star in the Nigerian music scene, known for his distinctive blend of pop, Afrobeat, and hip-hop. He also gained recognition for his talent as a songwriter and lyricist.

Mohbad released his debut album entitled “Imole,” which achieved considerable commercial success in 2022.

The album featured hit tracks like “See My Benz,” “Kimi,” and “Ronaldo,” solidifying his position in the industry.

Newsone recalls that the late Mohbad’s management announced his exit from the record label on Tuesday, October 25, as his legal team released a statement asserting that Mohbad’s exit was as a result of the constant attacks he received, which were orchestrated by Naira Marley, and unpaid royalties since 2019.

The “KPK” crooner’s exit comes weeks after he took to Twitter on October 5, to reveal bloodied bodies, claiming that it was as a result of being assaulted by the Marlian crew, because he requested to have his manager changed.

“Just because I want to change my manager who is their brother, see what they did to me at Marlian House,” he had tweeted, saying “World pls help me oo I’m dying inside.”

Revealing that he was at the hospital for a CT Scan for head impact and chest X-ray as a result of the assault, he added “I’m not high oo cos that is what dey always say just to die down everything.”

Mohbad accused Naira Marley of being present during the assault and doing nothing to stop it.

The artiste also accused Marlian Music record label of refusing to pay him his royalties from monetised intellectual content and advances as mutually agreed since 2019.

“In contravention of the terms of the arrangement between our client and yourself, you have failed to pay any advances as mutually agreed by both parties since 2019 till date;

“You have also failed to pay all royalties due our client from all his intellectual property works monetized, released and utilised by you from 2019 till date,” the document read.

Meanwhile, Newsone Nigeria reports Mohbad death is an immense loss to the Nigerian music landscape, leaving a void that will be deeply felt by fans and peers alike.
