A Nigerian prophet has claimed he can resurrect the late Afrobeats star Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, known as MohBad.
The singer died on September 12, 2023.
Nigerian Prophet Offers To Ressurect Mohbad
Prophet Oba Ewulomi made the controversial statement in a video that has gone viral on social media, where he demanded access to the singer’s corpse and promised to bring him back to life.
“Promise Imole MohBad can still live again. Give me access to his corpse, and I will wake him up. Yes,” the prophet said in the video in a mixture of English and Yoruba.
The prophet also alleged that some insiders, including his father, his friend, a nurse, and a third party killed MohBad at the hospital where he was admitted.

Prophet Ewulomi’s claim has sparked mixed reactions on social media from MohBad’s fans and Nigerians. Some have expressed disbelief and anger at the prophet for making such a statement.
“In a sane society, this man would be arrested immediately.”
“People are just using this Mohbad’s death to chase clout.”
“Why do some Pastors always want to make headlines? I am sure his family member or extended family died. Did he wake them up?”
“Am sure more people are looking for new and creative ways to associate with the unfortunate incident. And to the number of people that jumped on this ‘Mohbad trend’, there will be no end!”
Promising Life Tragically Cut Short
MohBad, formerly signed to Naira Marley’s Marlian Records, died on the 12th and his family buried him the next day. Nigerian police exhumed his body on 21 September for an autopsy after suspicions of foul play.
Meanwhile, MohBad was one of Nigeria’s rising musicians, known for his hit songs such as “Ponmo”, “Feel Good”, and “KPK (Ko Por Ke)” with Rexxie, nominated for The Headies Awards in 2022. His songs have been topping the charts and streaming platforms since his death, as fans continue to mourn and celebrate his legacy.
