Nigerian music sensation Mohbad, whose real name is Promise Oladimeji Aloba popularly known as Mohbad (Imole), tragically passed away on Tuesday, September 12, 2023. The news of his untimely death sent shockwaves across the music industry and his fan base, as he was only 27 years old.



According to a source from Mohbad's team, the young singer had visited the hospital for treatment due to an infection resulting from an injury. During his hospital stay, he received an injection, after which he unexpectedly lost consciousness and did not regain consciousness.



A statement confirming Mohbad's passing was posted on his official Twitter account, expressing deep sorrow over the loss. The statement 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."



Mohbad rose to fame in 2020 with his hit song Ko Po Ke and was signed to Marlian Records in 2019, under the leadership of Naira Marley. However, in 2022, he left the label amid disputes over his royalties. His legal team claimed that his departure was due to constant attacks allegedly orchestrated by Naira Marley.



Earlier in 2023, reports emerged that Mohbad had attempted suicide as a result of the issues he faced with Marlian Records. Bella Shmurda, a friend and fellow musician, revealed during an interview that he had witnessed Mohbad attempting to jump off a balcony.



Mohbad's passing has left the music industry and his fans in mourning. Despite his brief career, his impact on the Nigerian music scene was significant and his music resonated with many.
