Mohbad’s 28 posthumous birthday: His Life after death
The life of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly referred to as Mohbad or Imole (Light), serves as evidence for the proverb that states that death is not the end but rather the start of a new life.
In a way, his untimely death on September 12, 2023, marked a comeback for his music career and notoriety. Mohbad’s biography has a slight detour despite the appearance that it follows the pattern of rappers who rose to fame and economic success following untimely deaths.
Mohbad was not known to be a gangster, in contrast to other rappers who rose to fame after passing away.
The “revelations” that followed Mohbad’s passing and the ensuing hatred and indignation nearly brought about societal unrest in Nigeria.
His passing became contentious after Online footage showed well-known socialite and Marlian Music CEO Naira Marley’s accomplice Samson Balogun, also known as Sam Larry, and others interfering with the late rapper’s video shoot in Lagos.
