According to Joseph Aloba, Mohbad’s father, Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, narrates how he met his wife Wunmi at Naira Marley’s Marlian Music label.
Considering the circumstances of his passing, Mohbad’s death has generated debate for more than two weeks.
The pair had known each other since they were very young in Oke-Iletu, Ikorodu, Lagos, according to him, who described Mohbad as a simple and modest person. They later reconnected at Naira Marley’s label. Before they reconnected, there was no string holding them together, though.

Aloba elaborated on this by recalling a line from the song “Komajensun” that Mohbad sang in 2020. The line, “Naira lo gbe omo fun mi, I’m not a womaniser,” refers to how Mohbad reconnected with Wunmi at Marlian Record.
“He (Mohbad) met the lady (Wunmi) there (at Marlian Music) but they had known each other from Oke-Iletu, even though the lady was a student then,” Aloba disclosed to this reporter.
The Lagos State Police Command has commenced an investigation to unravel the circumstances leading to the artiste’s death.
Meanwhile, the Coroner’s inquest into the death of Mohbad has fixed October 13, 2023, for witnesses to appear before it.
Attorney Funmi Falana, who represented Mohbad’s family, alongside other lawyers, had closed-door proceedings to discuss the modalities for hearing of evidence.
Speaking to the journalist after the proceedings, Falana said, “What we did today was to decide how and when the procedures would help get justice. The date has been fixed and will be bringing our witnesses.
