Joseph Aloba, the father of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba popularly known as Mohbad, has provided an insight into the swift burial of the late artiste, who passed away at the age of 27 on September 12, with the burial taking place the following day.
In a recent interview shared by Temilola Sobola (@TemilolaSobola) via Instagram on Tuesday, Aloba gave Yoruba culture as the reason for the quick burial, explaining that it is customary not to delay the burial of a deceased person when both parents are still alive.
He mentioned that if Mohbad had passed away at an older age, the option of keeping his body in a mortuary for a later date might have been considered.
Aloba further revealed that the land where his son was laid to rest belonged to Mohbad and that he had given it to him to build a church. He clarified that the decision to bury him swiftly was in accordance with Yoruba customs.
Mohbad, a former record label signee of Marlian Music owned by Naira Marley, left the label in February 2022.
The management of Mohbad, on Monday, announced a candlelight procession and tribute night for the late artiste Thursday (tomorrow) while the Lagos State Governor, on Wednesday, invited the Department of Security Services to join the probe of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
