Mohbad’s Father Hurriedly Buried Him Before He Died, Mother Alleges

by Ohepo Ohepo

The late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, was buried before he passed away, according to Abosede, the singer’s mother.

In the exclusive interview “Uncensored: Mohbad’s mother opens up on late son, ex-husband, Naira Marley,” published on Saturday PUNCH, Abosede revealed this.

Despite spending ten days at Joseph’s house just before the late singer passed away, she claimed she was unaware of the day Mohbad passed away.

“I actually did not know when my child (Mohbad) died. His father did not tell me. I was in his house for 10 days, shortly before he died. I ran back there when I heard that he had died. I was the one who called his father and siblings to inform them. I brought them all together.

“I called their father to come and see me with all the children despite all he had done to me. I did not have the strength to fight with him because I found happiness in my children, and because they are grown-up, I brought them all together. But, their father separated us.

“I believe that my son was not dead as of the time he was buried. I actually told them not to bury him, but they refused. If they had not buried him at the time he did, I believe he would have lived. Joseph is actually my problem. I believe that he buried my son before he died,” she added.

Although, Aloba gave Yoruba culture as the reason for the quick burial, explaining that it is customary not to delay the burial of a deceased person when both parents are still alive.

He said they might have thought about storing Mohbad’s body at a mortuary till a later time if he had died at a later age.

The late singer’s father went on to say that Mohbad owned the land where his son was buried and that he had given it to him so that a chapel could be built on it.

He added that it was Yoruba culture that dictated the decision to bury him quickly.

“In Yoruba land, his corpse is not the kind to be kept when both of his parents are still alive,” he said.

“That land where Mohbad was buried is his only land, that is the only land I know him to have owned.

“Truly he gave me the land to build my church because we had both agreed to build the church there and since that’s the only land I knew him to have,” he added.

Mohbad passed away in Lagos State on September 12, 2023, at the age of 27.

Mohbad’s remains were dug up for an autopsy after the Lagos State Police Command conducted an inquiry to determine the reason behind his death.
