Remember that two days after Mohbad died under questionable circumstances, Primeboy issued a video in which he denied any participation in his death.
In the video, he stated that Mohbad was a boyhood friend of his and that he had no cause to harm him. He claimed that on the Sunday before Mohbad died, September 10, the singer called him to arrange a meeting. He stated that he was in Ikorodu when he received the phone call from Mohbad in Lekki.
‘’I keep seeing a lot of rumours out there saying something happened on Sunday and maybe that led to the death of Mohbad. Nothing happened on Sunday. There is nothing that happened between me and my friend. Mohbad sent me a text on Saturday saying I should come to the Island. I was at Ikorodu when he called me. He said come, that he was back from Nairobi. I have a screenshot of the video. He always calls me. I gained a lot from Mohbad. So tell me, who will I gain from now. They are now saying I killed my friend. Why would I do that? I did not even fight with Mohbad. Do you know who Mohbad is to me? Mohbad is my childhood friend, my close friend.”
He said Mohbad made him meet so many people in the music industry including Bella Schmurda who he said gave him a gold necklace worth N700, 000.
‘’Mohbad gave me free access to be around people. So tell me, who will be like my friend? And you are now saying I killed him. Anyone who said I killed my friend, God will judge that person except I have a hand in it”.
On what transpired between him and Mohbad on Sunday, September 10, Ibrahim said;
‘’Me and Mohbad were on stage together. Mohbad was F*cking high that day and I knew my friend was drunk…..so he sat down in the car after we came down from the stage. Mohbad sat down and his wife was in our middle. I don’t know anything that happened. He was just angry and saying he wanted to get down from the car.”
