This sad news comes a few days after singer, Bella Shmurda revealed how Mohbad, attempted suicide due to a feud with his old record label, Marlian Music.
Earlier last year, he had accused his former record label boss Naira Marley on social media of ordering his goons to beat him up.
Shortly after the incident, he left the record label.
In an interview with well-known media figure Chude Jideonwo, Bella Shmurda claimed Mohbad attempted suicide during his issues with his former record label but was stopped by friends.
In his words:
“There was a time, me and him were in an apartment and he was like he wanted to jump from the upstairs because of the issues he was having with his record label.
We held him by the window. Mohbad had almost jumped, it was his girlfriend that entered the room and saw him sitting down at the window.”
Bella Shmurda added that he went through therapy sessions and hospital for hypertension treatment before he could recover from the issues with Marlian music.
