Renowned Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti, has expressed his disapproval of people who are blaming the father of the late Nigerian singer, Mohbad, for the untimely death of his son.
Mohbad's death on September 12 and his subsequent burial the next day sparked controversy on social media, with many people faulting the singer's father for the alleged hasty burial of his son without any proper preparations or investigations.
He said, “Poverty is playing a big role in this whole Mohbad issue. People are saying Mohbad’s father killed him because he buried him early. Who will be looking at his son’s dead body for two to three days?”
“If na Otedola pikin die and he bury am overnight, wetin anybody go talk here? No be sey una go dey give am condolences visit for a house?
“Instead of us to be consoling the man, we are making him evil that can kill his son. Somebody that just lost his child. You like the boy pass am na hin dem dey bully the boy all these days and you no talk anything.”
