The management of the late Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, has debunked claims that the singer left behind a will.
The management noted that the artist died without writing a will on how his assets should be distributed.
Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, in a recent interview with TVC, claimed that he discovered his son had a will.
In the interview Joseph Aloba said, “I was so shocked when I heard that the 26 years had a will. As a father, I do not have something like that. I’ve never thought of writing my will.
26-year-old boy was writing a will. Which is capital no! So they had to collaborate with the lawyer to put his hands into many things that are not right.”
Aloba also claimed that the will had a thumbprint and not a signature, alleging that the thumbprints were done after the singer’s death.
He said, “Mohbad is the kind of person that will never think of using his hand to thumbprint. Instead of that, he will sign. Because he was dead, they had to call a lawyer to do their own mathematics inside.
“I did not believe that. He cannot thumbprint, he is supposed to sign. I as his father cannot even say I want to thumbprint. I have my signature, he has his signature too. Simply because they cannot trace him, they had to use his hand to thumbprint many things there.”\
However, reacting in a statement shared via the late singer’s Instagram page on Monday, his management debunked the claim describing it as “false and misleading”.
The statement partly read, “We would like to use this opportunity to share a few updates and highlight certain truths so that misconceptions and miscommunication do not persist.
The management said on Instagram
It’s been a couple of months, but the life and death of Imole still remain fresh in our minds.
We know that nothing can bring Imole back, but we have cooperated with the authorities to make sure that all parties involved get the clarity and closure that we need to be able to remember Moh and live as he lived in his last few months: drawing strength from his past, but happy, strong and looking forward to the future.
We would like to use this opportunity to share a few updates and highlight certain truths, so that misconceptions and miscommunication do not persist:
The Police Authorities have conducted an investigation and have communicated that the autopsy results from samples sent abroad will take a couple of months before they are shared.
No members of Mohbad’s management or his
Lawyer have communicated the existence of a will or any such thumb-printed document (as has recently been
FALSELY reported) to any member of the family or the public. We would like to state with certainty that if any such document did exist, it would have been duly registered with the Probate Registry. We therefore plead with everyone to refrain from sharing false and misleading statements like this.
3. All accounts owned and controlled by Imole during his lifetime were immediately put on a Post No Debit order on the 12th of September, 2023. This order remains valid till date. These accounts will be properly handed over to the family upon resolution of the internal dispute.
Once again, we thank the you all for your continued support of Imole. We urge you, in your pursuit of justice and closure, to seek, speak and promote only the truth.
May the light guide you always ?
