Tonto Dikeh Writes Open Letter To MohBad’s Dad

Published

on

Controversial Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has accused Joseph Aloba, father of late singer, Illerioluwa Aloba, otherwise known as Mohbad, of focusing on material things rather than mourning the passing of his son.

Tonto, who expressed displeasure at his actions since the death of his son, had a lot to say about him in an open letter. She posted a picture of Mohbad on her Instagram page and addressed his father, condemning the hasty burial of the singer which took place immediately after his death, an action which led to a public outcry in September 2023.

“I can empathise with the harsh realities of poor conditions, but when it involves your own flesh and blood, your son, it’s truly heartbreaking. How is it that material things or wealth seems to outweigh the love for your own child?

“The hurried and undignified burial of our dear MohBad within a mere 24 hours of his supposed passing, compounded by insufficient arrangements due to financial constraints after getting a whopping sum of N2 million, is deeply distressing considering his status. Need I remind you of the shameless, senseless and inhumane way MohBad’s neck was broken?”

She condemned Mr Aloba’s persistent cry for a DNA test to be conducted on Mohbad’s infant son, Liam, alleging that his interest in the boy’s paternity only grew after some funds were paid into the boy’s bank account. She reminded him that Wunmi was his son’s wife, his current widow and he ought to go to her with his DNA demands.

“The decision to exhume your son’s remains stemmed from a collective outcry of Nigerian youth – which is a testament to our shared concern. While we acknowledged that Mohad is indeed your son, please note, he was a married man, and the responsibility should extend to his wife regardless of any circumstances.

“In your quest for global assistance and DNA verification, it’s crucial to address the right of that woman personally, the one who holds the answers. By the way I totally agree with DNA, but why are you asking Nigerians for DNA and not Wunmi?” the actress added.

“Your immersion in social media, driven by trivialities and fleeting fame, is disheartening. I find solace in the knowledge that you are not a part of my family, sparing us the pain of witnessing your disregard for your son’s memory. It’s bewildering that your discontent only surfaced upon witnessing contributions to your grandson in custody of his mother, your late son’s wife.”

Finally Tonto alleged that Mohbad’s father had capitalised off his son’s death and charged N10,000 to N15,000 to grant interviews. She urged him to do better for the sake of his son.
