It will be recall that Mohbad called out his former record label boss, Naira Marley on social media last year, accusing him of ordering his boys to beat him up.
He left the record label shortly after the incident. In a chat with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Bella Shmurda said Mohbad attempted to commit suicide during his ordeal but was prevented by friends.
According to 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 said Mohbad went through therapy sessions and hospital for hypertension treatment before he recovered from the issues with his former record label,” Bella Shmurda stated.

Recalls that fast rising Nigerian rapper, Mohbad died on Tuesday 12th September 2023 in a controversial manner.
The police on Thursday said they have launched an investigation into the singer’s demise. The law enforcement agency had also called for individuals with useful information, especially friends and family members of the late rapper to come forward.
However, controversial self-styled investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, on Saturday gave Bella Shmurda 48 hours ultimatum to go to the police and speak up. On her X handle, she wrote; “Bella Shmurda I am giving you 48 hrs to go to Nigerian Police and speak to Prince Moye or force CID Ikoyi.” Police spokesperson, Adejobi quoted her post with the caption; “I am waiting to hear from him.”
Bella Shmurda had in an interview revealed that Mohbad attempted suicide after his fallout with Naira Marley-owned record label, Marlian Music. He also stated that the late rapper was receiving threats until his untimely death.
However, Nigerian singer and rapper, Naira Marley has spoken for the first time since Mohbad died on Tuesday. Mohbad passed away under controversial circumstances and was buried on Wednesday in Ikorodu, Lagos State. In a statement posted on his Instagram page on Friday, Naira Marley said he is heartbroken by Mohbad’s death, adding that he will be truly missed.
The Marlian Record label boss admitted that although they had disagreements, no harm whatsoever was wished on Mohbad. Naira Marley also condoled with Mohbad’s family, while demanding a thorough investigation into the death of 27-year-old talented rapper.
Meanwhile, Lagos socialite and show promoter, Samson Erinfolabi Balogun, popularly known as Sam Larry, who was accused of having a hand in the death of singer and rapper Mohbad, has finally broken his silence. According to information from our reliable source, 27-year-old Mohbad died on Tuesday 12th September 2023 in a controversial manner.
Sam Larry, an associate of Naira Marley, the owner of Marlian Music that formerly signed Mohbad came under heavy fire on the internet after a video of him and his men disrupting Mohbad’s video shoot with Zlatan Ibile surfaced on social media.
It was also alleged that the music promoter and his associates subjected Mohbad to relentless bullying and influenced promoters to deprive him of opportunities, making his life increasingly challenging after leaving Marlian Record.
The late singer had, three months ago, petitioned the Nigeria Police, alleging his life was being threatened by Sam Larry and Naira Marley. Addressing the allegations in a trending video on social media, Larry denied having a hand in Mohbad’s death, describing him as his beloved brother.
According to his words; “Mohbad is my brother. When he was signed to Marlian Records, he knew I loved him so much. Even his wife and everyone else know that I love Mohbad. Everywhere I go, whether it is Kenya or Dubai, I will call him so that we can go together. I will pay Marlian Records for a show, and we will go together. The videos going viral happened last year when I was not in the country. So, I can’t kill Mohbad, God sees my heart, and I love him so much. I don’t know anything about his death,” he stated.
Meanwhile, Mr Aloba, the father of late Nigerian singer and rapper, Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, aka Mohbad, has broken his silence on his son’s death. He said he had a terrible dream about the singer two days before his demise. The bereaved father who spoke on Wednesday shortly after his son was buried, recounted his visit to the singer days before the sad incident.
The interview clip has now gone viral on social media. Mr. Aloba said; “Mohbad is my friend. I named him Olademeji which means my second because I am the only son of my parents. We are very close. Whenever he sees me, he rejoices with me. I could even remember the last time we met before his death, which was last week Saturday.
“I went to his house, we played together. He gave me food. He was even the one who served me. He joined me, and we ate it together. And when I was leaving, he gave me money as usual. The only thing I observed is that I dreamt concerning him maybe two days before the incident. In my dream, I saw someone who was holding a gun to shoot me. In the dream, I was even thinking that maybe I escaped the bullet not knowing that something like this would happen to me.”
He said despite the allegations on social media, he isn’t suspecting anyone. He, however, said he was a little concerned about the auxiliary nurse who injected Mohbad before he died, stressing that he wasn’t too sure of her qualifications. Mr Aloba said he suspects that the injection might have complicated his son’s health.
However, the family of late Nigerian singer, Ifeoluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad has confirmed the news of his death. They posted a statement on his official Instagram page on Tuesday night. Although the cause of his death was not disclosed, Mohbad’s family begged for privacy at this difficult time.
It read: “It is with great sadness that we confirm the passing of Promise Oladimeji Aloba AKA Mohbad (Imole) today, the 12th of September, 2023. “Mohbad was Light until the very end, and as we mourn the loss of the brightness he carried, the family thank you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time. “Imole is finally at Peace.” Mohbad passed away on Tuesday 12th September 2023 at the age 27, with varying accounts of how he died circulating on social media.
