Popular Nollywood actors, Femi Adebayo and Toyin Abraham have reacted to the death of Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, professionally known as Mohbad.
The top actors reacted to Mohbad’s demise in separate posts on social media.
Recall that Mohbad died last Tuesday and was buried on Wednesday at Ikorodu, Lagos, amid controversies surrounding his death.
Taking to her Instagram page to pay her last respects to the singer, Toyin Abraham on Sunday wrote, “I was in denial, I couldn’t use the ‘was’ for you Imole. I really want to wake up from the dream. I can’t forget the memories on my movie set ‘Ghost and the Tout’ and how you showed a level of humility that is lacking in some of your peers.
“Just as your name, Your light shone so brightly I can’t really believe it’s gone. Your death has opened a lot of shocking, complex, and unbelievable underlying stories that sound so hard to let go.
“Though we can’t have you back but total justice for you may start the healing process. The necessary government parastatals need to do their job.”
Also, paying tribute, Femi Adebayo on his official X, noted that the late singer lived up to his name ‘Imole’ by shining brightly briefly before his exit.
“In memory of Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba Mohbad, a star whose musical brilliance graced the world. Though your life was tragically cut short, your music remains a testament to your resilience and artistry. “Imole,” meaning “Light” in Yoruba, was your name, and you lived up to it by illuminating the lives of many.
“Rest in power, Imole.”
