MohBad’s death: I Know A Lot, says widow

Widow of late Nigerian hip-hop star, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba popularly known as Mohbad, Omowunmi, says she knows a lot of things about her husband’s death.

She, however, said that her life would be in danger if she reveals all that she knows about Mohbad as his bullies would not let her.

Mohbad’s wife made this known in is recent post on social media, as she expressed sadness over her plight and that of her child, Liam, since the death of her husband.

Recall that Mohbad who was a protege to musician Azeez Fashola with the popular name Naira Marley met his demise on September 12, 2023, under mysterious circumstances.

Despite the intervention of the Lagos police on the death of the 27-year-old, there are still controversies surrounding his death.

According to Omowunmi, the music industry bullies falsely accused her husband of using drugs to silence him into death.

She claimed that he was helpless and did not receive help until he died, adding that the DNA and legitimacy issue about Liam was troubling.

Omowunmi wrote, “They silenced my husband by spreading rumours that he was on drugs. Now they’ve been targeting me by releasing a voice note I recorded a few years ago for medical purposes

“They’re attacking our only child by labelling him as illegitimate. My husband was messed up mentally. If he had continued speaking about his challenges, perhaps he would still be alive today.

“The last time they attacked him, I begged him to speak out. But he felt powerless against the influence of the industry gods.

“Mohbad would have sought medical treatment after his injury if he didn’t live in constant fear. He believed the medical system could be compromised, and doctors bribed to harm him. I know a lot, but they won’t allow me to speak my truth. If they eventually kill me too, like they did Mohbad, just know I said it.

“So many things have happened since I lost my husband, yet I can’t speak. I am helpless. I want the world to know that I tried to speak up, just as my husband always wanted to, but they bullied him to silence as they are currently doing to me.

“The DNA issue has brought tears to my eyes and pain to my heart. There has never been any doubt or discussion about Liam’s paternity until my husband’s demise. My husband never for once questioned the paternity of our son during his lifetime, neither did my father-in-law or his families.

“The first time I heard about his doubt was on social media. He never spoke to me personally about the DNA till this very day. Since November, I have been waiting for a court order to proceed with the DNA testing. However, I am now being asked to take Liam to my father-in-law so the test can be done.

“Which of you will take your son to such a man in this circumstance? Liam is the only precious gift llerioluwa left me with. I will protect him until my last breath.”
