Why I Keep Mohbad’s Parentage a Secret – Singer’s Mother Shares Her Story


Mrs. Promise Aloba, the mother of the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, has revealed that her late son had a deep fear of her being abducted.

This fear ultimately led him to dissuade her from residing in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, where he had rented an apartment and intended to establish a business for her.

Describing her final moments with Mohbad, Mrs. Aloba shared how her son and his wife had persuaded her to stay with them due to the emotional distress he was enduring.

Mohbad tragically passed away approximately two weeks ago, sparking controversy surrounding the circumstances of his death.

This controversy prompted authorities to exhume Mohbad’s remains.

Addressing a group of journalists at the singer’s residence, Mrs. Aloba expressed, “I don’t openly reveal that I’m Mohbad’s mother because he was genuinely concerned that I might be targeted for kidnapping.

He relocated me from Iyana to Ikorodu and had plans to establish a business for me there.

However, I can no longer stay in Ikorodu; I requested that they rent out the shop because I am filled with fear.”

She continued, “My child never truly enjoyed himself; he lived in constant fear whenever I visited, struggling to sleep and often experiencing anxiety.

They frequently had to report to the police about our safety concerns.

I spent ten days at his residence without any inkling that he would pass away.

I left on a Saturday, completely unaware of his impending demise on Monday.

He begged me not to go, but I convinced him to attend church.

Both he and his wife tried to persuade me to stay, and he withheld my financial support because he wanted me close.
