The late Nigerian singer and rapper, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known Mohbad, has been featured in The Times Square’s billboard displayed on Broadway Times Square, in New York City.
This was after Mohbad died a week ago under mysterious circumstances.
Nigerian musicians, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido, Falz and Zlatan Ibile joined the candlelight procession in honour of late Afrobeats star Mohbad in the Victoria Island area of Lagos. The 27-year-old Ilerioluwa Aloba died in Lagos under mysterious circumstances.
Since his demise, Nigerians have been calling for a thorough probe into the circumstances surrounding it. They requested the authorities to do a deeper investigation.
While there have been protests in some parts of the country, Thursday’s procession is to further call for justice for the late singer.
The procession started around 7:18pm with hundreds of youths gathered in honour of the talented artiste.
A similar event is also taking place in Peckham Square, in Peckham, the UK. Participants were heard singing the late rapper’s songs in viral social media videos.
The procession comes just as police authorities in Lagos State exhumed the rapper’s body and completed autopsy on the remains.
In viral video, Davido was seen protecting his drink which was in a disposal cup. He also rejected an opened bottled handed to him by one of his aid.
