The American hip-hop icon, Kodak Black added his name to the increasing list of famous people expressing their sorrow at the passing of this promising star. During one of Kodak Black’s Instagram live sessions, a follower remarked that Mohbad was their local hero up until his tragic death.

In a similar vein, popular Chicago rapper, Lil Durk also paid tribute to the late Mohbad. He sent his condolences on Twitter on September 19, 2023, writing “RIP Mohbad AKA Imole.” The rapper paid honour to Mohbad further by sharing the image on his Instagram story. Although Lil Durk’s tribute may surprise some Nigerians, it highlights the music of Mohbad’s influence and global appeal. Notably, Lil Durk is well-liked among Nigerian music fans as evidenced by the fact that his song “All My Life,” which features J Cole, debuted at the top of both the Apple Music and Spotify Nigeria charts.

Tragically, public outcry over Mohbad’s death has prompted demands for a thorough police inquiry into the potential of foul involvement. Online videos that show instances of harassment involving the deceased musician have surfaced, raising concerns about the circumstances of his passing.
