Davido, the Afrobeats star, says he will return to Nigeria for a candlelight rally organised in memory of Mohbad. 


The 27-year-old singer died last Tuesday and was laid to rest on Wednesday.

The circumstance surrounding his death has continued to stir up controversies on social media.

The Lagos state police command recently commenced an investigation into Mohbad’s death and mentioned the possibility of exhuming his corpse.


Music fans have also organised candlelight processions to honour Mohbad.

Reacting to one of the fliers on his Instastory, Davido, in a terse post, said “on the way” to Nigeria.

The ‘Timeless’ hitmaker, who is on a tour in the United Kingdom, accompanied the post with an aircraft emoji and a Nigerian flag.


According to the flier, the procession is set for Thursday, September 21, starting from Lekki Phase One through to Muri Okunola Park.

Shortly after Mohbad’s death, Davido paid tribute to the late singer during his concert in Manchester.

He also offered his condolences to the singer’s family.

Iyabo Ojo, the actress, organised a peaceful rally on Wednesday to demand justice over the death of Mohbad, a former Marlian Music signee.


More than 250,000 people have called for the ban of Marlian Music, the music label owned by Naira Marley.

This was due to the faceoff between Mohbad and the music label’s head honcho.
