Nigerian Hip Hop artiste, Zoro has announced that he is shelving the posthumous release of a song he recorded with late musician, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba also known as Mohbad.
The rapper whose real name is Owoh Chimaobi Chrismathner revealed via Twitter on Friday evening that their single titled M.A.D (Medicine After Death) was supposed to drop today, September 22.
Zoro, who prayed for his colleague to ”rest in power”, said it still feels unreal that Mohbad, who passed away at 27, was actually gone.
He said the song will now be released at a later date while he resecheduled his forthcoming LP ”Sound Check” originally slated for hit streaming platforms on 6th of October.
The ‘O42’ hitmaker also shared a video of Mohbad in the studio when he was recording his verse for the song.
The artiste wrote: “Everything still feels unreal even till now, We were going to release our record M.A.D “Medicine after death” today 22nd September instead it’s rest in power and #justice4mohbad? It breaks my heart seeing part of the things we talked about creating this record happening to you, daaame numb broski.
I’ve been in shock and confused also wondering about the next move for this record. But whenever I remember how much work you put into making sure the record came out solid, what the record meant to us and how excited we were to release it.
I feel this is the right decision. I’ve decided to keep the record in the project and release it for a later date n have your son Liam get all the proceeds. Unfortunately my LP “Sound Check” which was meant to drop on the 6th of October will also now be moved to a further date.”
