“The right thing should be done” – Mohbad’s father gives stance amid calls for grandson’s DNA test



In a recent interview with BBC Pidgin, Joseph Aloba, the father of the late Nigerian singer Mohbad, shared several insightful details about his son’s life, including his journey into music and the complexities of his family relationships.

He also addressed the ongoing debate surrounding the possibility of conducting a DNA test for Mohbad’s son, Liam.

Aloba described his relationship with his late son as more than just a typical father-son dynamic; they were close like friends, often relating to each other as equals.

He reminisced about how Mohbad had shown a keen interest in following in his father’s musical footsteps from a young age. Mohbad would frequently dance or serve as a backup singer at events where his father performed.

The interview also shed light on the family dynamics that shaped Mohbad’s upbringing. Aloba revealed that his son’s stepmother entered the picture after the singer’s mother left him.

Mohbad’s stepmother initially tried to adapt to the family, but she eventually felt marginalized and asked Aloba to choose between her and his son. Aloba, in his unwavering support for Mohbad, chose his son, leading to his separation from his second wife.

Regarding the ongoing paternity debate surrounding Mohbad’s son, Aloba acknowledged that the issue had garnered widespread attention and discussion across Nigeria. He emphasized the importance of doing the right thing at the appropriate time.

In his words:

“This thing has become a majority thing, not only Nigeria. So they should do the proper thing at the proper time.”
