MohBad, passed away in a Lagos hospital, and details surrounding the exact circumstances of his death have not been publicly disclosed. Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has promised a comprehensive investigation into the matter.

A special investigative team has been established, with plans to conduct an autopsy after exhuming the singer's body to shed light on the situation. The team will visit relevant locations, past records, and conduct a thorough examination to establish the facts surrounding the case.

In the wake of MohBad's passing, emotions are running high, with some tributes suggesting that the singer may have experienced bullying within the music industry.

Naira Marley himself has called for a thorough investigation into MohBad's death and has pledged support in uncovering any potential foul play or injustice. This incident has also led to a ban on Naira Marley's songs by a major radio station in southwest Nigeria, SplashFM, for the duration of the investigation.

As the public calls for justice escalate, Nigerian actress Iyabo Ojo has urged local stars to participate in the Wednesday demonstration. She emphasized the importance of a transparent investigation and called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ensure that those responsible for MohBad's death are held accountable.
