“His step mother asked me to choose between her and my son” – Mohbad’s father spills
Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, better known as Mohbad’s father, Mr Joseph Aloba, has revealed shocking details about the relationship Mohbad had with his wife.
Recall that there have been speculations that Mr. Joseph and Mohbad’s mother went their separate ways over 20 years ago, and Mr. Joseph went on to remarry someone else.
Speaking in an interview with BBC Pidgin, Mr Aloba stated that his wife asked him to choose between herself and his son.
The authorities are still investigating the reason for his death, but his father shared information about him and his late son’s stepmother.
“My name is Mr. Aloba Joseph Oluwabamiwo, and I am the father of the late Mohbad.”
Mohbad was a quiet person who didn’t talk much. Whatever you gave him would satisfy him. He was my friend, and we used to go out together.”
Whatever I was doing, he would always join me, and we were very close. We were like brothers.”
Ilerioluwa was someone who liked to do the things I did. He saw me as a bishop, and when I went out, he was ready to follow me.”
Sometimes, he would dance, and sometimes, he would support me. That’s how we started.”
I never thought he could even sing, but there was a time when we were at a Redeemed Church, and I promised him that after I finished building our house, I would buy him a talking drum. He was happy.”
After buying him that talking drum, within three days, he learned how to play it. I was so surprised.”
Speaking about marrying multiple wives, he said: “I can say Mohbad was the reason for having multiple wives because after his mother left me, I had to marry another person.”
“The second wife was understanding at first, but later, when Mohbad wanted to go to school, she started complaining, saying, ‘You don’t open up to me,’ ‘You do everything with your son.’ She even said, ‘It’s either you choose me or your son,’ and I told her I would choose my son.”
