The late Street Hop sensation, whose music has experienced a renaissance in the Nigerian streaming platforms, has received accolades from musicians and personalities from Nigeria and beyond, including Kodak Black, Lil Durk, and Meek Mill.
As a result of the internet footage showing the musician being tormented by a man identified as Sammy Larry, Mohbad’s death has raised a great deal of public concern regarding claims of foul play and bullying.
