Pastor Tunde Bakare, the General Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, shared his thoughts on the late singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad. Pastor Bakare expressed concerns about Mohbad’s choices in life.

Pastor Bakare questioned Mohbad’s life choices and even raised doubts about whether “Mohbad” was a suitable name. He referred to a tape he and his wife had listened to, discussing the artist’s life choices and his untimely demise at the age of 27.
He said; “My wife and I listened to a tape last night on MohBad. How many of you know Mohbad? The Nigerian artiste who died at 27? Mohbad,” Bakare asked.
“When he was drinking and smoking and associating with evil men, he did not know that the harvest would come so soon and that he would soon be cut down at the prime of youth.
“I am not blaming him, I am just telling you. Is Mohbad a good name? Mohbad.”
