The family members of the late Nigerian artist, Mohbad, were recorded in a discussion about the procedure for retrieving his possessions from his wife, Wunmi, at the location of his burial. It’s important to remember that the singer tragically passed away on Tuesday, September 12, and was buried in Ikorodu, Lagos state, adhering to Islamic traditions, just within a day.
When his grave was being dug, some of his relatives were captured plotting how to claim his properties from his 24-year-old widow.
During their discussion, one of the men asked for the whereabout of Mohbad’s wife and said she must ‘drop everything’. In response, a man asserted that she should not come for the funeral because they will collect everything belonging to the singer in her possession.
An elderly man present at the scene added that there are children who earn millions of naira but fails to send money back home. He also warned the men gathered at the gravesite not to put their faith in women.
Another man was heard bemoaning where the singer was being buried, stating that the singer who has mansions is getting laid to rest in a village.
It’s worth noting that Mohbad’s marriage to his wife was not made public until his untimely death. The musician was apparently married to his 10-year partner, with whom he has a 5-month-old son.
Meanwhile, this has sparked outrage on social media, with many condemning the family for discussing about the singer’s properties barely 24 hours after his death.

Not even the 5 months old baby is a concern for them, not how to get justice for the person that died, just greed”
