“I would probably say Olamide is the one Nigerian I wish I had signed with. To be honest, I wish I had signed Olamide because he would have signed a slew of new musicians regardless.

‘Before reinventing himself as a music executive, Olamide was my favourite artist. I told him he was my favourite artist the first time we met,’ Akon said.

In another report, the Lagos State Police Command says it has commenced a full investigation into the death of singer Ilerioluwa Aloba aka Mohbad, indicating the possibility of exhuming the singer’s remains.

The 27-year-old’s death on Tuesday evening sparked public outcry for the authorities to unravel what many have described as suspicious circumstances.

The objective of the investigation, it said, is to establish facts, “clearing all doubts and ensuring that justice is manifestly served through a meticulous process that will deploy all requisite protocols (which may include exhumation), as well as technical and scientific tools that are vital to the detailed investigation of homicide allegations of this nature.”

The police boss reportedly constituted a Special Investigation Team within the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) to coordinate the investigation.

The team, which reportedly comprises seasoned homicide detectives, is tasked with aggregating all allegations, suspicions and insinuations from various sources on the death of the singer and undertaking a professional, diligent and timely investigation.
