Social media was rocked by the news of Mohbad’s passing as coworkers and admirers expressed their sorrow over the passing of the musician, whose most recent EP was published in June 2023.

On Tuesday night, the singer’s Twitter account sent a statement that formally announced the news.

It read, “It is with great sadness that we confirm the passing of Promise Oladimeji Aloba PK/A Mohbad (Imole) today, the 12th of September, 2023. Mohbad was a light until the very end, and as we mourn the loss of the brightness he carried, the family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time. Imole is finally at peace.”

After the release of his iconic song Ko Po Ke in 2020, Mohbad aka Imole experienced tremendous success.

The rapidly growing singer was signed by Naira Marley’s Marlian Records in 2019. Sadly, he had problems with his royalties and left the label in 2022.

In a statement issued on his behalf, his legal team claimed that Mohbad’s departure was due to the persistent attacks he endured, which were reportedly coordinated by Naira Marley.

It is important to remember that the singer allegedly made an attempt on his life earlier in 2023 as a result of problems with Marley’s record label.

Bella Shmurda revealed this in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo. He claimed that they were in an apartment when Mohbad left, and that shortly after, his girlfriend frantically came into the room because he was attempting to jump to his death from the balcony.

His followers and famous people have used social media to pay respects to the budding star since the world was made aware of his passing.
