Korede Bello, the Nigerian singer, says he will not open up about his pain on social media.
The hitmaker was reacting to concerns from a curious fan who inquired about his well-being amid the death of Mohbad, another singer.
The circumstance surrounding the 27-year-old’s death has continued to spark controversies on social media.
Prior to his demise, Mohbad had a heated rift with Naira Marley, his former record label boss.
Responding to the inquisitive fan on X, Bello said he is well but would not divulge his pain online so it is not “consumed as entertainment”.
“I am well, but even if I am not, I will not be on the Internet talking about it because I wouldn’t want people to consume my pain as entertainment.
Beauty & Bliss, Thank you,” he wrote.

In a follow-up post, Bello revealed that it is difficult to “stay sane and clean in the music industry”.
“People don’t understand how hard it is to stay sane in a seemingly crazy industry. It’s even harder when you choose to stay clean,” he said.
“So if you want to help an artiste stay alive, contribute to their mental health, support them while they’re still here with whatever you have.
“Even if all you have are your kind words. You may not love their art, but you can choose to love the soul of the artist in the human being.”
Bello left Marvins Records, his former label, in 2017.
In a recent interview with TheCable Lifestyle, the singer said he is on good terms with Don Jazzy, his ex-label boss.
