Mohbad: Singer Khaid gives N2m, 100% royalties from tribute song to son

Sulaimon Solomon, better known by his stage as Khaid, a Nigerian rapper and singer, has contributed N2 million to help Liam Aloba, the son of the late Mohbad and Ilerioluwa Aloba.

Last Tuesday, Mohbad, who passed away at the age of 27, was signed to Naira Marley’s Marlian Record but departed the company in February 2022.

Khaid commented on Tuesday, “It’s with great pain that I pen this, the past few days have been a rollercoaster of emotions for each and every one of us,” explaining this via his X handle. We lost a friend named “Imole” who had a unique ability, a wonderful personality, and all three.

 “In my own little way, I’ll love to support the family by giving N2 Million to the wife of our late brother and covey 100 royalties of the newly released tribute song “Forever” to Liam Aloba Eyinimofeoluwa. Rest On IMOLE,” he posted.

The Department of Security Services was previously invited to participate in the investigation into the late artist by Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, according to GISTLOVER.

This was said in a statement released on Tuesday and signed by Gbenga Omotoso, the commissioner for information and strategy for the state of Lagos.

Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has urged the DSS to join the inquiry and broaden the dragnet with interagency cooperation and the deployment of best-in-class technology to uncover the truth, in addition to the police special investigative team in Lagos looking into Mohbad’s death.

 “Mr. Sanwo-Olu has directed that all those who may have played any role whatsoever in any event leading to the death of MohBad be made to face the law after a thorough investigation.

“Consequently DSS has also joined the investigation so as to get justice for the youngster, his family and teeming fans,” part of the statement read.

The state government pleaded with all those who may have vital information that may assist the investigation process to avail the investigating team of such.

“Government also appeals to the investigating team to guarantee the confidentiality and protection of all witnesses who may come forward with vital information or indicative evidence that may assist the process,” it added

Meanwhile, the management of Mohbad, on Monday night, announced a candlelight procession and tribute night for the late artiste.
