In a heart-wrenching revelation, Prince George, a prominent Canada-based show promoter, has announced the untimely demise of Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, on the very day his Canadian visa was approved. This shocking revelation was made during a candlelight procession organized by the Nigerian community in Toronto, Canada, on Saturday night.
Prince George, visibly shaken by the tragic turn of events, disclosed that he had intended to surprise Mohbad’s best friend, Bella Shmurda, during the latter’s upcoming show in Canada by bringing Mohbad as a special guest. He recounted how he had sent a message to Mohbad’s manager earlier on the fateful day to convey the good news of the visa approval, only to receive the heart-wrenching news of Mohbad’s mysterious passing.
“I had planned to surprise the late singer’s best friend, Bella Shmurda, during the latter’s show in Canada by bringing Mohbad to the show,” George lamented. “I sent a message to Mohbad’s manager in the morning of the day he died to inform him that his visa had been approved, only to be told that Mohbad had died mysteriously,” he continued.
The atmosphere during the candlelight procession was somber, with Bella Shmurda, Mohbad’s best friend, in attendance, visibly distraught by the loss of his close companion. Struggling to find the right words to convey his grief to the gathered audience, Bella Shmurda shared his shock and sorrow over Mohbad’s sudden passing.
“This person is my brother, my guy, my best friend, you know? It’s so sad. This is someone I saw before I left Nigeria, only to be called two, three days later that he had died. Everything was so funny. Even my mum had to call and tell me not to come home,” Bella Shmurda emotionally expressed.
The Nigerian music community in Canada and around the world mourns the loss of Mohbad, a rising star whose talent and potential had left an indelible mark on the music industry. The circumstances surrounding his sudden demise remain shrouded in mystery, and fans and colleagues alike are left grappling with the untimely loss of a promising talent.
