Prominent musician, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, better known as Mohbad, has tragically passed away.

Reports from entertainment journalist Ovie on X (formerly Twitter) indicate that the 27-year-old Nigerian rapper, singer, and songwriter, passed away on Tuesday, September 12, 2023. However, the exact cause of his demise remains undisclosed at this time.

It’s worth noting that Mohbad was formerly signed to Naira Marley’s “Marlian Records” but departed from the label in 2022. He had gained widespread recognition for his hit singles such as “Ponmo,” “Feel Good,” and “KPK (Ko Por Ke)” in collaboration with Rexxie

The passing of Mohbad is a profound loss to the Nigerian music industry and has left fans in mourning.

This sad news comes a few days after singer, Bella Shmurda revealed how Mohbad, attempted suicide due to a feud with his old record label, Marlian Music.

Earlier last year, Mohbad had accused his former record label boss Naira Marley on social media of ordering his goons to beat him up.

Shortly after the incident, he left the record label.

In an interview with well-known media figure Chude Jideonwo, Bella Shmurda claimed Mohbad attempted suicide during his issues with his former record label but was stopped by friends.

In his words:

“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.”

Bella Shmurda added that Mohbad went through therapy sessions and hospital for hypertension treatment before he could recover from the issues with Marlian music.
