- Tonto expressed her disappointment with Mohbad’s father’s actions and she accused him of letting his son down again
Popular Nigerian actress, Tonto Dikeh, who has been at the forefront of seeking justice for Mohbad, has penned down an open letter to the late singer’s father, Joseph Aloba.
Taking to her official Instagram page, the movie star reacted to allegations that Aloba was collecting money for interviews among other things.
In the lengthy note, the movie star expressed her deep disappointment with Mohbad’s father’s actions as she accused him of gravely letting down his son’s memory.
Tonto started out the letter by apologising to the late Mohbad and noting that he deserves so much more than his present circumstances.
She then went ahead to tell Mohbad’s dad that his love for material things outweighing his love for his son is very heartbreaking.
Tonto also pointed out the undignified way Mohbad was hurriedly buried with his neck broken in his casket even though he had gotten a N2 million donation for the burial.
“Papa Mohbad, I can empathize with the harsh realities of poor condition, but when it involves your own flesh and blood, your son, it’s truly heartbreaking. How is it that material things or wealth seems to outweigh the love for your own child?
The hurried and undignified burial of our dear Mohbad within a mere 24 hours of his supposed passing, compounded by insufficient arrangements due to financial constraints after getting a whooping sum of 2 million Naira,is deeply distressing considering his status.
Need I remind you of the shameless, senseless and inhumane way mob’s neck was broken?” she wrote.
According to Tonto, Mohbad’s body was only exhumed due to the outcry from concerned Nigerians.
The actress also noted that despite the late singer being his son, he was also a married man and his wife, Wunmi, should also be responsible for things concerning Mohbad.
In another part of the letter, Tonto Dikeh described Mohbad’s dad’s social media actions as disheartening.
The actress then pointed out that the old man only started to show his dissatisfaction after seeing the way people contributed money to Mohbad’s wife for their son, Liam, and how he now charges between 10k to 15k to grant interviews.
In her words:
“It’s bewildering that your discontent only surfaced upon witnessing contributions to your grandson in custody of his mother “Your late son’s wife”, BUT YOU NOW CHARGE 10k/15K to be interviewed♀️

My heart aches for the pain you are causing and the deep wounds left unhealed. But I’ll leave you with these words, DO RIGHT BY YOUR SON.”
