The management of the late singer Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, known as MohBad, has issued an official statement confirming his unfortunate passing.
The talented artist, aged 27, passed away on Tuesday, reportedly due to complications arising from an ear infection.
The brief statement, shared on both his Instagram and Twitter profiles, reads: “With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Promise Oladimeji Aloba PK/A Mohbad (Imole) on September 12, 2023.
Mohbad’s light shone brightly until the very end, and as we grieve the loss of this radiant talent, the family expresses gratitude for your love and prayers.
They kindly request that you respect their privacy during this challenging period. Imole has found peace.”
It’s worth noting that MohBad had parted ways with Naira Marley’s label in 2022, amid concerns about his mental well-being.
In a candid interview with Chude Jideonwo, his close friend and colleague, Bella Shmurda, detailed MohBad’s battle with depression and a near-suicidal experience.
