To establish his grandson’s paternity and to halt growing concerns, Joseph Aloba, the father of late rapper MohBad, has requested a DNA test.

Some Nigerians have demanded a DNA test to prove the paternity of MohBad’s five-month-old son the controversies surrounding the musician’s death.

In an interview with BBC Pidgin, MohBad’s dad addressed the massive controversy surrounding the paternity test for his grandson.

Mr Aloba insisted the right thing should be done as the matter was now a global concern.


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

Businessman Larry Omodia appeared in a video on September 24 encouraging Mohbad’s wife to conduct a DNA test on her son to confirm his paternity.

He offered to pay N10 million for an “all-expense paid” DNA test if the singer’s widow consented.

In light of the numerous controversies surrounding Mohbad’s death, he argued that a DNA test was necessary.

According to him, Omowunmi’s prime suspect status was determined by a leaked conversation between Mohbad and Omowunmi during a heated argument.

In the leaked clip, the ‘Peace’ singer made serious allegations against his wife, including conspiracy, and swearing that she would be held responsible if anything terrible happened to him.

Omodia said Omowunmi’s acceptance of a paternity test would put an end to every traumatic accusation she was facing and most importantly clear her name.

The social media influencer VeryDarkBlackMan had previously received a stern warning from Mohbad’s sister-in-law after suggesting a DNA test be conducted for the rapper’s 27-year-old son, Liam.

The Instagram activist was threatened with a N300 million lawsuit for defamation of character if he persisted with his DNA request.
