Reports claiming that the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known by his stage name Mohbad, left a will have been refuted by the singer’s management.

The explanation followed Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, claiming in a recent interview that his son had written a will prior to his passing.

However, the late singer’s management responded, calling the assertion “false and misleading,” in a statement posted on Monday via the singer’s Instagram page.

A portion of the statement said, “No one from Mohbad’s administration or his lawyer has informed any member of the family or the public that there is a will or any other type of thumb-printed document, despite recent false reports to the contrary.

We want to be clear that, in the event that such a document existed, it would have been properly filed with the Probate Registry. Therefore, we humbly ask that people not spread such inaccurate and deceptive statements.

The management reported that on September 12, 2023, “all accounts owned and controlled by Imole during his entire life were immediately put on a Post No Debit order.” To this day, this order is still in effect.

The funds “will be appropriately transferred over to the family upon settlement of the internal dispute,” it continued.

The Late Nigerian Singer released his debut album, Light in 2020 and received five nominations for the 2021 Beatz Awards. Earlier he had released single “ponmo” which he featured Naira Marley and Lil Kesh, the song was accepted by his fans and was making waves in Nigeria for some time.

MohBad was featured as one of the best 21 Afrobeat artists of 2021 on Audiomack. Under Rexxie’s production, he published Peace in 2022. It reached its pinnacle in 2021 and 2022 on TurnTable’s top 50 and top 100 lists. Following the news of his passing, “Peace” shot to the top of Apple Music in Nigeria and was backed by his single “Ask About Me,” which peaked at number two. 

“Beast & Peace,” the first song on Blessed, was at number four as of September 15, while “Feel Good” was at number five. From 990,000 to 8.02 million, his streams grew by 702% between September 12 and 14. “Peace” made its debut at number two on Billboard’s Hot Trending Songs chart for the week of September 23, 2023.

On September 18, 2023, the Nigerian Official Top 50 Albums chart saw Blessed hit a new peak at number four and Light makde its chart debut at number 20. Streams of Blessed rose by more than 530% on September 21. On September 23, he surpassed global musicians including Nicki Minaj, Eminem, 21 Savage, Lady Gaga, and Chris Brown to become the 46th best-selling digital artist.

Mohbad signed a deal with Marlian Records World in 2019 and parted ways with them after three years. On October 5, 2022, MohBad made allegations of violence against singer Naira Marley, his manager. He said that after he declared his plan to get a new manager to oversee his business and musical endeavours, his previous boss gave orders for individuals to beat him up.

Following his passing, MohBad reportedly submitted a police report in June 2023 claiming that he had been injured and some of his stuff destroyed by Samson Erinfolami Balogun, a music promoter known by the moniker “Sam Larry” and a known acquaintance of Marley’s. According to MohBad’s testimony, Larry broke up a film shoot by escorting a group of fifteen men who claimed to be employees of monarch Oba Elegushi and were armed with pistols and cutlasses.

Following up on the allegations, police said that when MohBad failed to show up for a scheduled follow-up meeting, Balogun and other people accused in the assault had launched a defamation lawsuit. Elegushi dissociated himself from Balogun in a statement and expressed his condolences for MohBad’s loss.

An April 2023 baby boy was born to MohBad and Omawunmi.At the age of 27, MohBad passed away on September 12, 2023, following treatment for an infection by an unlicensed nurse who was subsequently taken into custody. Following the singer’s body’s exhumation on September 21, 2023, police later declared they will look into the circumstances surrounding his death.

Mohbad’s death caused a lot of controversies in Nigeria following his misunderstanding between his former manager Naira Marley and Sam George. Most people believe they had something to do with his death after deciding to leave the record label and further misunderstanding.

His fans and other Nigerian artists like Davido and Zlatan joined a massive candle night for the late Mohbad which some claimed justice for him. May His Soul Rest In Peace.
