Pastor Tunde Bakare has attracted criticism from some Nigerians on social media for his comments over the passing of Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as Mohbad, a prominent Nigerian artist.
On Sunday, the Citadel Global Community Church’s Serving Overseer made a comment about the late singer’s identity and lifestyle, claiming that he “reaped the reward of his unpleasant lifestyle while alive.”
Speaking at the second anniversary of the UK-based church The Envoy Nation, Tunde Bakare said this and said that the late proprietor of the Imolenisation record company had connections to bad people while he was alive.
He claimed the former Marlian Music record label signee had engaged in an “unpleasant lifestyle” while asking the congregation if “Mohbad is a good name.”
“My wife and I listened to a tape last night on MohBad. How many of you know Mohbad? The Nigerian artiste who died at 27? Mohbad,” he asked.
“When he was drinking and smoking and associating with evil men, he did not know that the harvest would come so soon and that he would soon be cut down at the prime of youth.
“I am not blaming him, I am just telling you. Is Mohbad a good name? Moh Bad,” Bakare disclosed.
Taking to social media, netizens on Monday, blasted Bakare for the comment.
Pastor Tunde Bakare who contested election as VP with the coup plotter said Mohad died because of bad company.
Well, he's right.

Pastor Tunde Bakare keeps bad company with looters and corrupt politicians in APC.
If anything happens to him, we will remind him of the bad company he kept instead of focusing on what happened to him https://t.co/PLHKvJrYsD
