Late singer, Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba has asked Nigerians to forgive him.
This is as he revealed more details about his son’s death in an interview with BBC Yoruba.
He pleaded with Nigerians to forgive him for burying his son quickly, adding that no one loves his son like he does.
Mr Aloba further stated that his son before his death confided in him that Naira Marley had an evil side.
He revealed that his son had been subjected to physical abuse multiple times, adding that the first time Mohbad was beaten, he reported it to the police, but no action was taken.
Mohbad’s father, who is a pastor, expressed his inability to take traditional measures due to his religious beliefs.
He said, “My son died at about 3 p.m. and nobody called me. By the time I got to his house, it was 10 pm and I saw a lot of crowds. We were denied a police report at the station, We tried to take him to the mortuary but there was no space, and I couldn’t be watching him in the house. I had to bury him. Nigerians should forgive me if I offended them. Nobody loves him like me.
“I have never seen Samlarry before in my life. The first day I went to Naira Marley’s house, Mohbad was eating and Naira picked a spoon and was eating with him.
“This really touched me that he loved him so much but my son told me Naira was evil. When I went to Naira’s room to beg him to forgive my son whatever he might have done, I didn’t know he was recording me.
“The first time Samlarry ever beat him, he told me not to say anything, he reported at the police station but nothing was done.
“Since then he had always been living with fear. He was beaten again during his video shoot with Zlatan.
“I need justice for him. As a Pastor, I can’t fight this traditionally because of my religion. If they want to do the DNA test, let them do it.”
