I wasn’t relating well with my son before 2019 – Mohbad’s mother tells court

Mrs Promise Aloba, the mother of late musician, Ilerioluwa Aloba alias Mohbad, has revealed her relationship with him was not cordial for a long time.

The singer’s death has been generating controversies, prompting the Lagos State Government to direct a coroner’s inquest into the death.


Abosede told the coroner’s court the reason she and Mohbad have a sour relationship is because her husband took him away and instructed him not to contact her. She, however, added that she began to relate better with him in 2019.

Mrs Aloba testified before Magistrate Adedayo Shotobia during the Coroner’s inquest into the death of Mohbad.

She further revealed that when her son fell out with his former boss, Naira Marley, she and her husband visited the Marlian Music CEO’s residence to ask him why they were having dispute.

“I asked Mohbad to call Pasuma to report Naira Marley because of the consistent beating, and Pasuma said he would intervene. Mohbad kept on cautioning me not to talk.

“I only got to know about the injury four days after, and the only person he had issues with is Naira Marley. The only complaint from the wife about him was infidelity,” she explained.
