Nigerian singer Shallipopi recently shared an email he received from an unidentified individual impersonating the late Nigerian singer Mohbad.
Mohbad, a former artist signed to Marlian Music, tragically passed away on September 12. While rumors circulated about the cause of his death, including a reported ear infection, concrete evidence is yet to confirm the cause, as his body was recently exhumed for an autopsy.
Several days after the incident, Shallipopi posted a screenshot on Snapchat, revealing the email he received from someone claiming to be Mohbad. The email content stated, “Good evening Shali, this is Mohbad, but remain calm.”
Shallipopi’s post of this screenshot has sparked discussions online, with many individuals sharing their thoughts and opinions in the comments section
