Who Was Mohbad & Who Killed Him? As news of his death hit as far as Saudi Arabia's largest news paper. With photos of the thousands of youth who planned and walked in a march to gain the attention of the government. The youth were upset by a series of videos that had been shared on various social media platforms.

One was a Live video of the artist popularly known as Mohbad (or Mabad), who's real name was, Ilerioluwa Aloba, a 27-year young, husband & father. Details are unconfirmed if he was legally married or if they were just in a relationship that resulted in the birth of their infant son.

Mobad was said to have went to a local clinic to be treated for an ear infection. There something was done to him, others also say he was injured from a prior attack, possibly stabbed.

Fans and Nigerian claim he was targeted for murder for some time before his death, sadly some roads are leading to his own father.

Hours after his (so-called) death, he was buried by family member with videos showing his neck bent unnaturally to fit into the coffin. His wife and baby weren’t at the funeral.

There were videos of an attack from another musician, Naira Marley whose label Marlian Records, the late Mohbab was signed to until last year. I watched footage of the videos, people were asking Mohbad to share his location. Social media users were asking where he was located, as some wanted to come to his assistance.

Just recently the Nigerian government started listening to the youth who took to the streets in several protests, asking for the answers behind his death. With news of Naira Marley being located in Kenya.

Nigerian Artist Mobhad died in unclear circumstances, raising allegations for pre-meditated murder through poïsoning by his so called close friends..

In a circulating video that was recorded some time back, Mohbad is seen on a hospital bed crying and telling his people that he was given something to drink, by some friends who he trusted, and suddenly he noticed nobody drunk from it afterwards..

After His death, Mobhad was allegedly buried less than 24 hours after he was announced dead.

In circulating pictures, he was buried in a coffin so small that it they had to bend his neck so he could fit in.

2 days ago his body was exhumed for autopsy and it was discovered his body had no foul smell as that of a decaying body.

Also in his coffin fresh blood was seen, which has raised even further allegations that he might have been buried alive while unconscious,

Investigations have begun as multiple fans and Nigeria celebrities have demanded JUSTICE.

RIP Mobad

On the 21st of September 2023, an artist and promoter known locally as Big Fish, his real name is Foday Alieu. He’s known to have a controversial history with the police and violence. Once getting into an altercation with another artist, which caused a car accident, someone to get their ear bitten off, as well as one death, among other things.

Of course the police and media called him a “thug” and “armed robber” as well.

He was said to have approaced a random woman police officer, she was stationed near the United Bank for Africa (UBA). Located on Charlotte Street and forcibly snatched her rifle, she reported that he fired the weapon into the air.

There is video of Foday Alieu, he’s walking through the streets as people scattered for cover, police say he continued to fire the weapon. Which is probably why someone from a high level building started to record the video of his last movements. There in the video you can see one officer moved towards Big Fish, where he fired the fatal wound, which ended the life of Alieu, (Big Fish).

He was buried yesterday in Sierra Leone.
