"Mohbad Passed Neco In One Sitting, But I Don't Know Why He Joined Naira Marley" Mohbad's Ex-principal

Abidemi Faboye, the proprietor and principal of Abifab College in Ikorodu, Lagos, the secondary school where Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad, attended, recently shared his memories of the late singer in an interview with Punch.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

How would you describe Mohbad? I knew him when he enrolled in my school in 2013. He was a quiet boy, tall and slim. He added weight years after secondary school.

Did you know he was a member of the Marlian group? When I heard that he was a member of the Marlian group, I was surprised. I doubted if he could cope with such a group. I felt he must have mixed with others who joined the record label. I prayed that God would be with him because after he left school, we did not communicate regularly.

Did he show any sign of his musical talent while he was in school? Many of us, including the teachers who taught him, were surprised. We didn't know he had musical talent. He was active in the school's music club and would lead with songs during quiz competitions.

When he became famous, how did he balance school and music? He was busy with his music, and he told me that when he had inspirations, he would write down the lyrics in a jotter and later develop them. He became a star in the afrobeats music scene.

How do you feel about his passing? He was a star we lost too early. People now ask how I coped with him when they learn he passed through our school. I receive condolences from his seniors and juniors from different places, including the United Kingdom. He was a child of promise and a real imole (light) of afrobeats music.

Abidemi Faboye shared his fond memories of Mohbad and the pride he felt in the late singer's success in the music industry, emphasizing that he was a talented and promising star.
