Why Mohbad’s Father Dislikes Me – Widow Opens Up

Omowunmi Aloba, the widow of the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, revealed a strained relationship with her father-in-law, Joseph Aloba, during her testimony at a coroner’s inquest into her husband’s death.

The inquest, which began on October 13, is taking place at the Ikorodu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

Omowunmi disclosed that her relationship with Joseph Aloba deteriorated after she gave birth to their son, Liam. She explained that Joseph Aloba was upset that Mohbad chose not to hold Liam’s naming ceremony in Ikorodu, where he resided.

Furthermore, Omowunmi accused Joseph Aloba of bringing different women to their matrimonial home on several occasions. She recalled an incident where her mother caught Joseph Aloba with one of these women.

Omowunmi stated that Mohbad, who was often away from home, became aware of his father’s actions and instructed him to refrain from bringing women to their residence.

She believes that Joseph Aloba harboured resentment towards her, perceiving her as the cause of the rift between him and his son.

“I used to have a very good relationship with my father-in-law before the birth of my son Liam. In fact, I used to invite him to our house on many occasions.

“But because Mohbad was angry with him over some of the things he was doing and his (Mohbad’s) refusal to hold our son’s naming ceremony in Ikorodu, he became angry with me, thinking I was the one behind all.

“So he became my enemy and was not talking to me like before,” she said.

Omowunmi also revealed that her husband faced humiliation, harassment, and bullying from his friends and members of Malian Records, his record label, prior to his death.

At the commencement of the proceedings, Coroner Adedayo Shotobi expressed condolences to Omowunmi over her husband’s passing and assured her that justice would be served in the case.
