The family’s legal team had earlier, on the instruction of their client, petitioned the police that Boluwatife Adeyemo, the personal assistant to the late Mohbad, had embalmed the body of the late singer which violates Section 16 and 48 of the Coroner’s System Law, 2007, which addresses the offences and penalties of tampering with a dead body.

The police upon interrogating Darosha have asked all those mentioned in his statement to be brought in for further interrogation.

Shortly after Mohbad’s death, his cousin, Darosha, on his social media handle, daroshagram, wrote “…About the salt, when my father died, a salt was placed on his chest till we arrived and was told it was local embalming to keep him fresh till the whole family arrived, and I did the same thing (on Mohbad) because a lot of people were still coming to see him before leaving to Ikorodu that night.”

The post sparked controversy in social media and legal circles that led to the need to discover who embalmed the late singer without regard to extant laws.

The legal team further stated that they were awaiting the police report as soon as the police got the legal advice from their legal department. It is then they will be properly informed the recommended persons will face prosecution.

“Why haven’t I had kids yet? Bro, because I don’t want to have kids yet,” Burna boy said.

“Have you seen my mum the way she loves me? Have you seen my dad the way he loves me?I know I can’t give that to anyone right now with the life I’m living. So until I’m settled and I can be there for my children everyday, I’m not having no kid.

“I feel like my kids deserved better than I got. And I got both my mum and dad so you understand?”

On the allegations that he is impotent, Burna Boy said, “When I see the bants and the things people say [about me not being able to have kids], I said this is unimportant. Let’s assume that it is true that I couldn’t even have kids, you know that there’s something called IVF? But that is not even true.”
