In the wake of the late singer Mohbad’s passing, his father, Mr. Joseph Aloba, has come forward to address various aspects of their family life and the ongoing discussions surrounding his grandson, Liam. In two separate interviews with BBC News and BBC Pidgin, Aloba shed light on his personal decisions and the DNA controversy that has become a topic of national interest.
Mohbad’s father revealed a significant decision he made in the past concerning his second wife and his son. Aloba disclosed that he was faced with a challenging choice when his wife demanded he pick between her and Mohbad. The contention arose from her reluctance to have Mohbad attend school and apparent jealousy towards the bond Mohbad shared with his mother. Choosing his son over his spouse, Aloba parted ways with his wife, emphasizing that he made this decision to safeguard Mohbad’s well-being. Reflecting on this pivotal moment, Aloba expressed no regrets, highlighting the lengths a parent would go to ensure their child’s safety and happiness.
On a separate note, the recent discussions about a DNA test for Mohbad’s son, Liam, have garnered widespread attention. Addressing this matter, Aloba acknowledged the magnitude of the issue, noting that it has transcended beyond just their family and has become a topic of national discourse. While he recognized the public’s interest and the calls for clarity, he emphasized the importance of timing. Aloba stated, “This thing has become a majority thing, not only in Nigeria. So they should do the proper thing at the proper time.”
As the entertainment industry and fans continue to mourn Mohbad’s loss, these revelations provide a deeper understanding of the personal challenges and decisions faced by his family. Amidst the grief, the Aloba family remains at the center of public attention, navigating complex emotions and societal expectations.
