How We Could Have Prevented Mohbad’s Death
Patoranking, a popular reggae and dance-hall artist, has stated that the death of the late teenage musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as Mohbad, may have been avoided.
Remember that the death of Afrobeat sensation MohBad sparked several disputes and rallies around the country, with youngsters seeking justice for the singer, whose death was thought to have been staged.
The murder of Mohbad, who was signed to Naira Marley’s Marlian Music record company, rocked the music industry and its admirers.
Patoranking suggested the late singer’s death may have been avoided if people had paid attention to his songs during an interview on Afrobeats Podcast.
He went on to say that Mohbad did not deserve what happened to him and that it is critical to seek justice for him.
He said, ”It’s so sad when you open your phone and you see Mohbad’s pictures and you come to the realization that he is not coming back again. It’s still hard to believe that he is gone.
”I sent him a DM in April just to commend his work and he replied me. He didn’t deserve what happened to him. Seeking Justice for him is very important and I stand by it.
”It is very good to pay attention to lyrics. If we had paid attention to lyrics we would have seen signs from Mohbad.”
