Iyabo Ojo, a Nollywood actress, has slammed those urging Omowunmi, the widow of late rapper Ilerioluwa Olademeji Aloba, aka Mohbad, to have a DNA test done on her kid to confirm his paternity.
According to reports, several Nigerians have continued to request that the rapper’s widow perform a DNA test on their five-month-old boy to establish that he is Mohbad’s child.
Larry Omodia, a businessman, recently donated N10 million to help Mohbad’s widow pay for a ‘all-expenses paid’ DNA test if she accepted.
However, reacting via a video message shared on her Instagram page, Iyabo Ojo said the calls for a DNA test were “insensitive.”
She said, “All these distractions of DNA test, you people should please allow Mohbad’s family to mourn. If Mohbad’s parents want a DNA test, they can request it. You and I don’t have the right to tell them to do a DNA test.
“Mohbad never told anyone that his son wasn’t his son. But if the officers investigating his death feel there is a need to conduct a DNA test, they will. We need to be very sensitive, please. Why are you guys bullying the poor lady [Mohbad’s wife]? Leave her alone.”
