Since it became known that the singer had a son whom he had kept private, numerous individuals have been offering financial support to his wife.
Just recently, Soso Soberekon, a business mogul and talent manager, donated N2 million to Mohbad’s son. Additionally, Almubee, a Nigerian businessman and Chairman of Almubee Group, gifted Omowunmi N2 million and pledged to sponsor their son’s education up to the university level.
Furthermore, singer Naira Marley, who has faced accusations from many, was reportedly raising funds for Mohbad’s son. This act of generosity was reported by media personality and artist Samklef.
When news of Mohbad’s passing circulated, his wife and the mother of his child expressed her concerns about shouldering the responsibility of caring for their child alone. On her Instagram page, she shared a series of posts contemplating where to begin, as the responsibilities of two have now become hers alone.
