Mohnad’s musical success after his death is bittersweet for fans who are both grieving his loss and celebrating his musical legacy.
Adding a twist to this is the fact that the artist had somewhat predicted it.
Recently, an unreleased song featuring Mohbad surfaced.
In the song, the late artist appeared to hint at his death and the aftermath.
“When I’m there no more, people will love me more. Talk about the things I’ve done, discuss my right and wrongs,”Mohbad sang.

Mohbad had filed a petition months before his death, seeking justice and protection for himself before his demise.
The petition was filed by the late artist against Sam Larry, an aide to Naira Marley.
The petition, dated June 2023, details an incident in which Mohbad was allegedly harassed and assaulted on the set of a music video shoot with Zlatan Ibile.
This revelation has made netizens question the Nigerian police response to such incidents and the need for accountability and justice.
Samklef shared the petition with the public. He has been vocal about the situation surrounding Mohbad’s passing.
