The Chairman of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos State Council, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (aka MC Oluomo), has donated N5 million to the family of the late Afrobeats artiste, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as MohBad.
Thus was confirmed from one of his aides, Jimoh Buhari, when the screenshot of the debit alerts surfaced on social media.
The alerts showed a transfer of N3 million for Mohbad’s son, Liam Eyinimofeoluwa Aloba; N1 million for the deceased father, Joseph Oluwabamiwo Aloba and another N1 million for mother of the deceased, Abosede Adeola Olumiyi.
Buhari said it was one of Akinsanya’s ways of reaching out to the people at their period of need, wondering how the “silent gesture” got to the social media.
Akinsanya, who recently returned to the NURTW from the Lagos State Parks and Garages (LASPG), Buhari said, didn’t want to make noise about the donation.
He said the NURTW Lagos boss was pained about the death of the musician.
“No one prays to loss a young lad who is doing well for himself and trying to uplift his family. The late Mohbad had struggled to get to where he was. Death took him at a point where he was about enjoying years of his hard labour. It is painful but we can’t query God,” he said.
Buhari added that the Lagos State transport chief sympathised with Aloba’s immediate family, close associates, friends and the musical industry.
