The father of the late Nigerian musician Mohbad, Joseph Aloba, has stirred up controversy online at the coroner’s inquest into his son’s death. He said that his late son’s wife, Omowunmi, had been unfaithful to him during his lifetime.
On Wednesday, October 25, 2023, reports stated that the late singer Mohbad’s parents, wife, and other family members appeared in a Lagos coroner’s court to make an official inquiry into the singer Oladimeji Aloba’s death. Mohbad’s father spoke during the coroner’s inquest, saying:
“Mohbad and I lived together for 18 good years. He has never fallen sick. I only took him to a chemist when he was 16 to treat rashes. He left the house at the age of consent and began to assist Naira Marley while embarking on his own career in music. When he started making it, he talked to me about reconciling with his mum which I did. He was happy and he bought me a car for this. When issues happened between him and Naira, he told me he would handle it.
Wunmi was a very unfaithful wife to my son. My son told me that she used to put sleeping pills in noodles for him and she would go and sleep with a signee in another room in the same house they were living. I don’t trust wunmi one bit. He told me that all the documents of his landed property were in the possession of wunmi’s mother till today. He came to visit me three days to his death. Concerning his neck that was bent in the casket, I didn’t know about it because I was not at the burial. It was later I saw the pictures”
Netizens are invested into the outcome of this inquiry as events leading up to the death of the budding sensation is being unravelled in court.
