A show promoter named Prince George from Canada’s Prince George city has revealed that the singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as Mohbad, passed away on the very day his Canadian visa got approved.
This revelation was made by George during the candlelight procession held by Nigerians residing in Toronto, Canada, on Saturday evening.
“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,” the singer and promoter said.
“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 said.
Bella Shurmda, who appeared visibly devastated, was also in attendance at the event.
He managed to utter a few words to the crowd, expressing his shock over the loss of his dear friend.
He said, “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.”
