Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Rema has come under heavy criticism and backlash after he shared the last message he received from the late singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
It would be recalled that the late singer unfortunately lost his life on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at the early age of 27.
Taking to his Instagram page on Sunday, September 17, Rema mourned Mohbad’s untimely date.
Expressing utmost displeasure following the tragic death, he said no one deserved to die like that and that was just the beginning.
He, however, revealed how he ignored Mohbad’s message on his Instagram page in 2020 where the late singer stated how much he really likes his song “Peace Of Mind.”
His statement has generated backlash and criticisms online for ignoring the late singer until his death.

Rema wrote; “No one deserves to go like this I’m hurt I never saw your DM You wrote ‘Peace of mind’ was your favorite song Now it’s too late to write you back. God’s Angels be with you, Rest well King.”
