The internet has been bustling with conversations in the aftermath of Mohbad’s untimely death, and emotions are running high. Rasz, a singer, has took it upon himself to call out celebrities who continue to publish things irrelevant to Mohbad’s death.
Rasz believes that it is disrespectful for prominent personalities to act as if nothing has happened as people across the country want answers and justice for Mohbad.
One of Rasz’s famous targets is the power couple Adekunle Gold and Simi. Netizens have pointed fingers at them for continuing to share content that appears to be unconcerned about the current situation.
Simi, for instance, recently used her Instagram platform to promote her upcoming tour and music. She even posted adorable moments featuring her daughter Deja on her Instagram story, all without any acknowledgment of Mohbad’s tragic demise.
This isn’t the first instance of celebrities facing backlash for their actions during this trying time. Just yesterday, Burna Boy found himself under fire when he hinted at the release of a new music video for his song “City Boy.” Netizens swiftly condemned him for what they perceived as insensitivity, criticizing him for promoting a song when the nation is mourning.
On the flip side, some celebrities are taking a different approach. Bella Shmurda, a close friend of Mohbad, has canceled all his tour plans. Instead, he has dedicated his time and energy to seeking justice for Mohbad’s passing. His decision to stand with the grieving community is commendable and has garnered support from many who appreciate his commitment to the cause.
In times of tragedy and grief, the role of celebrities and public figures are important. This is because they’re role models that are looked upon. Their actions and words can either unite or divide a nation in mourning.
