Controversy lingers over paternity of Mohbad’s son

…Monarch speaks


CITIZENS COMPASS– The controversy surrounding the paternity of Liam, the son of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, populaly known as Mohbad, has continued to linger as the Elegushi of the Ikate-Elegushi Kingdom, Lagos State, Oba Saheed Elegushi, said the paternity should not be linked to him as he knew nothing about the scenario.

The monarch refuted the rumours accusing him of being the father of the late singer’s son, Liam Aloba.

He disclosed this in a statement through his media consultant, Deyemi Saka, on Thursday, describing the insinuations by some social media users that he could have fathered Liam.

Recall that Mohbad passed away at the age of 27 in September 2023.

His death sparked controversy which is being investigated.

 The paternity of Mohbad’s son has been subject to scrutiny, particularly after Mohbad’s father, Joseph Aloba, insisted on a paternity test to ascertain if the late singer was indeed the father of his grandson.

Among the reactions to the paternity dispute was the allegation that Oba Elegushi could have fathered Mohbad’s son.

A TikToker, Oloriebimusicproduction2, made several posts on his TikTok page, which were seen by our correspondent, alleging that the monarch might be implicated in the death of the late Mohbad.

It was also alleged that the monarch was leveraging his influence to obstruct justice for the late singer.

Responding to these various allegations, the monarch clarified that they were baseless accusations aimed at besmirching his character.

Oba Elegushi also disclosed that a petition has been filed against individuals propagating these allegations.

The statement read, “We would like to respond to a new desperate attempt at dragging His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Elegushi, into the needless paternity dispute over the son of Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

“The widely syndicated falsehood was promoted by some persons with the underlisted profile on the social media app TikTok, namely: Oloriebimusicproduction2, PEKINS RULES, and WESTO4LIVE. Also, the same falsehood is being promoted by Auto Success Ola, Olubukola Jesse, Teni Ologo, and Tolani Ilesanmi.

“This is to inform the public that the allegation is false and a figment of the wicked imaginations of these persons.

“HRM Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, through his lawyers, has filed a petition against these persons with the Nigeria Police and other relevant security agencies in a bid to enforce his fundamental human rights and protect him from cyber bullies, while he is hopeful the Nigeria Police will collaborate with relevant international security organisations in this quest for redress.”
