What my son told me about Naira Marley — Mohbad’s father testifies in court


Mr Joseph Aloba, the father of deceased singer Ilerioluwa Aloba (aka Mohbad), told a coroner’s court on Wednesday that the deceased had been living with singer Azeez Fashola (aka Naira Marley) since December 2019.

Joseph testified during a coroner’s inquest into the death of his son.

The musician died on Sept. 12 and was buried the following day. He was 27 years old.

His death has generated controversy, prompting the Lagos State Government to direct a coroner’s inquest.

The inquest began on Oct. 13 and is taking place at the Ikorodu Magistrate’s Court in Lagos State.

Joseph told the coroner, Magistrate Adedayo Shotobi, that he and his son lived together for 18 years.

He said he did not know the exact house where his late son lived with Marley.

He testified that his son left his house at the age of consent and began to assist Marley while embarking on his own career in music.

Joseph said that he saw the deceased three days before his death.

He added that he saw the deceased’s casket only in a picture.

According to him, his son assured him that he would be able to handle his dispute with Marley.

Joseph testified that the deceased’s landed property was in the custody of his mother-in-law, adding that the deceased often told him about his possessions held by his wife and her family.

He claimed that Mohbad’s wife put sleeping pills into his food when they lived with Marley.
