Why “I don’t tell people I am his mother because he was scared I would be kidnapped” Mohbad’s mother opens up on his fears, recounts last encounter with him (Video)

The mother of late promising and talented singer, Mohbad has finally opened up about her son’s fears before his death.

The mother of two, in a interview with TVC, revealed that she never told anyone she was the mother of the singer because he was afraid she would be kidnapped or killed.

Contrary to report that she never had a relationship with her son, she disclosed that Mohbad had bought her a new house in Ikorodu, which he often visited; bought her a shop, gave her money to buy freezers and a generator, and had promised to gift her N5 million before he met his death.

She expressed her fears about returning to her house in Ikorodu and revealed her plans to rent the shop.

Speaking on Mohbad, she disclosed that the singer lived in fear and never enjoyed his life. At some point, she thought the attacks on him had stopped, till he dropped his EP and was given the beaten of his life.

She recounted how she accompanied him to the police station twice where he laid complaints, but nothing was done on it.

Two days before his death, he had begged her to stay with him, but she refused because she wanted to attend church service, which she had missed for two weeks.

“Mohbad’s mother ;

I don’t tell people I’m Mohbad’s mother, because he was scared I might get kidn@pped or k#lled. I’ve used just five months in the new house he rented for me, he even visited me 3 times. He took me out of where I was living before to Ikorodu, he said he wanted to be visiting me from time to time.

He just rented a huge shop (3 shops) for me, I’m yet to open it, he gave me money that I used to buy 2 big freezers and a big generator. The day he di£d, he promised to send N5 million so I could buy goods to stock up…

His wife said she’ll come and meet me, that I should get someone that will support me because we cannot buy the goods at once, and that it will take us 3 days to buy all the goods.

But now I’m scared, I can’t go back to Ikorodu, I called someone to help me rent the shop out and give me the money. My son did not enjoy himself, he lived in fear. He did not enjoy himself.

Whenever I visit him here, he sits right there and I’ll sit with him, then take him upstairs to sleep but he’ll be shaking his head. I even thought all those problems and att@cks had stopped, but when they b£at him again recently after he dropped his EP, I said these people haven’t left you, and he always goes to the police station to report, because I witnessed it twice .

I spent 10 days with him, I did not know he was going to di£, I left on Saturday and he di£d on Monday. And the reason I left on Saturday was because he had a show, he begged, begged, and begged me not to leave. So I told him that wouldn’t he allow me to go to church on Sunday, that I’ve missed church for two weeks and I needed to go and pray because I’m losing myself. It was the church that I mentioned that made him let me go.

Because he and his wife were pranking me, I told him that I was going but because he didn’t want me to go, he delayed giving me my feeding money because he knew I’ll leave if he gives me the money. Normally, he gives me feeding allowance every month.
