Joseph Aloba, the father of Mohbad, has addressed the calls for a DNA test to be done to determine the paternity of Liam, the son of the late singer.


The 27-year-old artiste died on September 12 and was buried the next day.

The circumstances surrounding his death have stirred up controversies on social media.

Liam is believed to be Mohbad’s child with Omowunmi, his lover.


Shortly after Mohbad’s demise, well-meaning Nigerians launched a fundraiser for the five-month-old baby.

Last month, Samklef, the singer-turned-producer, said over N30 million had been raised to support Liam.

Jeremiah Fufeyin, a pastor in Delta state, also gifted the sum of N10 million to Mohbad’s son.


In the wake of the donations, there were calls for DNA tests to determine the paternity of the child.

Reacting in a recent interview with BBC Pidgin, Aloba said calls for DNA test to be conducted on Liam have become “a global concern”.

Mohbad’s father added that although he is in support of the DNA test to ascertain Liam’s “true” paternity, it should be done “at the proper time”.

“This thing has become a majority thing, not only Nigeria. So they should do the proper thing at the proper time,” he said.


On September 21, the police exhumed Mohbad’s corpse for autopsy and are awaiting the results.
