During a conversation with renowned media personality Chude Jideonwo, Bella Shmurda, a fellow singer and close friend of the late Mohbad, disclosed that Mohbad had made a suicide attempt during his challenging times but was stopped by his friends.

He said, “There was a time, me and Mohbad were in an apartment and Mohbad was like he wanted to jump from the upstairs because of the issues he was having with his record label. We held him by the window. Mohbad had almost jumped, it was his girlfriend that entered the room and saw him sitting down at the window.”


Also recall that Mohbad’s journey to success was not without its challenges. He faced financial difficulties, industry politics, and personal setbacks. In 2022, he parted ways with Marlian Records after a public dispute with the label boss. The incident shed light on the exploitative practices that are prevalent in the Nigerian music industry.

Mohbad’s songs were known for their raw and emotional lyrics. He often sang about his personal struggles and experiences, such as poverty, heartbreak, and loss. His music was a reflection of his own vulnerabilities, and this made it relatable to many listeners.

One of the most striking aspects of Mohbad’s music was his use of metaphors and imagery to convey complex emotions. He would often draw on everyday experiences and observations to create vivid and evocative lyrics. For example, in the song “Feel Good,” he compares love to a drug that makes him feel high. In “Ponmo,” he uses the image of a piece of meat to symbolize the struggle for survival.

Mohbad’s songs were also characterized by their honesty and openness. He was not afraid to write about the darker aspects of life. His songs often dealt with themes of sadness, loneliness, and despair. However, there was always a glimmer of hope in his music. He believed that even in the darkest of times, there is always a way to find joy and happiness.

The struggles of youths in today’s world are numerous and complex. They face challenges in many aspects of their lives, including education, employment, healthcare, and mental health. These challenges can be compounded by factors such as poverty, discrimination, and violence.

One of the biggest struggles facing youths is the lack of access to quality education. In many parts of the world, youths are denied the opportunity to attend school or are forced to drop out due to financial hardship. This led to a cycle of poverty, as uneducated youths are less likely to find employment or earn a living wage.

Another major struggle facing youths is unemployment. The global youth unemployment rate is currently estimated to be 13.7%. This means that millions of young people around the world are unable to find jobs. The lack of employment opportunities leads to feelings of hopelessness and despair, and can also increase the risk of poverty, crime, and substance abuse.

Youths also face challenges in accessing affordable and quality healthcare. This includes a lack of access to reproductive health services, mental health services, and other essential healthcare services. The lack of access to healthcare has a significant impact on the health and well-being of youths.
