Joseph Aloba, the father of the late Afrobeat musician, Ilerioluwa Promise Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, recently explained why he dresses in his son’s clothes.

Speaking during the now viral interview with blogger Kachiwire, Joseph referred to his late son as a “friend with whom he shared common interests.”

He said, “We are the same size. He is my son. I can wear his clothes. We are the same size. And anybody that has that kind of a son and cannot share with, that means that person does not love his son. So we are together.

“I could remember the day they wanted to go and do the introduction that led to his engagement. He bought me shoes and he said ‘Daddy this is what you are going to wear’ I said these shoes were bigger than mine and that I did not want this kind of bourgeois, he said ‘this is exactly what I want you to do’.

“So, he wanted to blend in with me. He is my son and a friend to me. So my focus now is justice for Mohbad. So all those rubbish questions, I do not want to answer questions like that. He is my son. People can say whatever they like.”

Allub Times reports that Mohbad passed away on September 12, 2023, and was buried the next day.
