By Our Correspondent

Popular British-Nigerian singer and songwriter, Azeez Fashola known professionally as Naira Marley has sent a condolence message to the families, fans and friends of Promise Oladimeji Aloba, aka Mohbad, who recently passed away. 

The message which was released on the Instagram page of Naira Marley called on concerned authorities to thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of the 27 year old hip hop artiste.

The statement reads, "With heavy hearts, we mourn the loss of an exceptional talent. Someone who was more than an artist or signee but a brother and dear friend Promise "Mohbad" Oladimeji Aloba. We send our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones, we are all heartbroken by his tragic loss and will be truly missed."

"From inception we recognised Mohbad was a force to be reckoned with. His music gave so many people love and light. Mohbad touched us all with his heartfelt lyrics, storytelling, infectious smile and energy. The news of his passing has left us with a permanent hole in our hearts."

"Mohbad is an incredible street pop star who contributed to the foundation of the Marlian Music. Despite his departure last year, we continually championed his talent. No family is perfect, families have disagreements but no harm whatsoever was wished on Mohbad. So many things left unsaid but the love was always there. This tragedy is not only a loss for us but to everyone you touched musically around the world."

"As we share our condolences to the late Mohbad, we would like to echo a call for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death. We 're unhappy and unsettled with everything we have witnessed since Tuesday , the 12th September. We owe it to Mohbad to assist with uncovering any foul play or injustice. Our brother deserved a better send off, it saddens us that we couldn't assist with providing a befitting burial. We will continue our efforts to reach out to the family."

"We urge our colleagues in the media to treat this matter with the uttermost sensitivity, respect and care. We publicly appeal to the authorities to do due diligence and we will work closely to support those handling the matter. Finally urge the online community to refrain from circulating damaging accusations that could compromise the investigation. Rest well Imole, forever in our hearts" the Marlian boss said in the statement.

Naira Marley also shared a video showing the life and times of Mohbad while he was with the team as part of his tributes.
