THE father of late Nigerian artist, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba (Mohbad), Mr Joseph Aloba, has revealed the upsetting dream he had two days before the death of his son.
Recall that the Ko Por Ke singer died on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, and was laid to rest in Ikorodu the following day amidst tears from family, friends, and sympathisers.
The grieving father, speaking to an online blogger @og_baba1 in an interview on Wednesday, described his relationship with the late artiste as more of friendship than father-to-son.
In his words: “Mohbad is my friend. I called him Oladimeji (meaning my second) because I’m the only son of my parents. We were close.
“The last day we met, which was last Saturday, I went there (Mohbad’s house), and we dined together. When I was leaving, he also gave me some money like he always did.”
Narrating the terrible dream, he said, “I had a dream about him two days before the incident. In the dream, I saw someone trying to shoot me. I thought I escaped the bullet, not knowing something like this would happen to me.”
On what led to his son’s death, he said: “According to what I heard from people, though I don’t believe was that an auxiliary nurse administered him an injection, and that could have led to anything.”
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police Force has commenced an investigation into his death.
