Mohbad: ‘I’m not the father’ – Oba Elegushi clears air on late singer’s son


The Elegushi of IkateElegushi Kingdom, Oba Saheed Elegushi, has denied claims of fathering Liam, son of late singer, IleriOluwa Aloba aka Mohbad.

Elegushi said the rumours were a desperate attempt to tarnish his reputation.

Since Mohbad died, the issue of paternity has been at the forefront with the late singer’s father calling for a DNA test to ascertain if Liam is his grandson.

A TikToker, Oloriebimusicproduction2, made several posts on his TikTok page, 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.

Reacting, the monarch described the allegations as baseless accusations aimed at besmirching his character.

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

A statement by his media consultant, Deyemi Saka 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.”

Oba Elegushi, while extending condolences to the family of the late singer, implored members of the public not to entangle the traditional institution in the paternity dispute.

“It must be stated emphatically that Oba Elegushi, just like many Nigerians, is saddened by the sudden demise of Mohbad, and demands a thorough investigation and a quick dispensation of justice.

“While we pray to Almighty God to grant the Alobas the immense strength to bear this painful loss, we urge people to refrain from dragging the integrity of His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Elegushi, and the revered traditional institution he represents into public disrepute,” the statement noted.
