Famous Nigerian singer Rema is receiving severe criticism online for his way of mourning his colleague, Mohbad.
On September 17th, 2023, 23-year-old Rema joined other Nigerian celebrities in expressing sorrow on their social media platforms over the death of Mohbad, who passed away on September 12th, 2023, at the age of 27.
Rema, known for his hit song “Calm Down,” conveyed his deep sadness about Mohbad’s tragic death, emphasizing that nobody deserves to die in such a manner and that this was only the beginning of his success.
However, Rema faced backlash as he revealed that he had ignored a message from Mohbad on his Instagram page in 2020, where the late singer expressed how much he loved Rema’s song “Peace Of Mind.”
Rema admitted that he had only discovered the message after Mohbad’s demise, adding that it was now too late to reply.
Rema wrote; “No one deserves to go like this I’m hurt I never saw your DM You wrote ‘Peace of mind’ was your favorite song Now it’s too late to write vou back. God’s Angels be with you, Rest well King.”
