In October, in celebration of Nigeria’s Independence Day, Mohbad was honored in New York with an Independence Day event
The Consul General of Nigeria in New York, Ambassador Lot Egogipa, made this known during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in New York, where he admonished Nigerians living in the U.S. to be hopeful about the future of the country and its leadership.
The news didn’t sit well with many as they noted how no one paid attention to the singer when he cried for help before his untimely demise.
Since his death, Mohbad’s fame has soared higher, with American rapper, Meek Mill even reacting to his death by appreciating the way Nigerians are fighting for him.
3 of the rapper’s song has been ranked in the Billboard Top 10 and he has become the first African artist without an album to do it.
This achievement has brought renewed attention to his music and legacy, and it’s worth noting that securing a place on the Billboard Hot 100 is no small feat. This chart represents the most popular songs in the United States, and it is highly competitive. For Mohbad to achieve this milestone without even releasing a full album is a huge milestone.

The examination question posed to the students delves into the dynamics of employer-employee relationships, using the backdrop of Mohbad’s signing to Marian’s Record Label, led by Naira Marley.
