Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has taken a prominent stance in the wake of the controversial death of singer Mohbad, announcing plans for a protest in Lagos to demand justice for the late artist. During an Instagram live session on Monday, Iyabo Ojo revealed that her NGO, Pinkies Foundation, would be submitting a letter to the Lagos State government, with the protest scheduled for Tuesday or Wednesday.
In her impassioned plea for justice, Iyabo Ojo urged Governor Sanwo Olu to intervene and ensure a thorough investigation into Mohbad’s demise. She emphasized the need for transparency and accountability, stressing that the entertainment industry failed the singer while he was alive and that his death should not go unresolved.
“We parents are bringing the revolution to reality. The autopsy must be done,” Iyabo Ojo stated during her live session, adding that her foundation would be reaching out to various authorities and international organizations to seek support for their cause. She also called upon fellow entertainers in the industry to join the peaceful rally and make their voices heard.
The circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s death have raised significant questions and controversies online. The singer, who was 27 years old, had previously voiced concerns about threats to his life allegedly coming from Marlian Music Record, owned by Naira Marley. Following his untimely passing, the Lagos State Police Command launched a full-scale criminal investigation into the case, responding to public concerns and videos circulating online.
Additionally, Nigerians initiated a petition on change.org to ban Marlian Music, which has gained over 250,000 signatures as of now. The tragic incident has ignited a broader conversation about the well-being and safety of artists within the Nigerian music industry.
