A Lagos-based hospital, Perez Medcare Hospital, where late Afrobeats singer Mohbad was allegedly taken to has released statement clarifying his death.
The hospital released the statement via its official Instagram page on Monday.
In their statement, it was revealed that contrary to widespread rumours the singer was brought in dead at their facility at 4:30 pm on the 12th of September.
