In a developing story that has captured widespread attention, the traditional institution faces a grave challenge following allegations linking Oba Elegusi of Ikateland to the paternity and demise of late singer Mohbad. The controversy has ignited a firestorm on social media platforms, with bloggers and associates of the deceased singer fueling the discourse.

According to reports circulating on various social media networks, late Mohbad's wife, Wunmi, is alleged to have had a romantic involvement with Oba Elegusi, resulting in the birth of their son, Liam. Speculations further suggest that Wunmi may have passed off Liam as Mohbad's child, leading to domestic discord between the couple.

The refusal of Wunmi to consent to a DNA test to ascertain Liam's paternity has intensified the public scrutiny surrounding Oba Elegusi. Despite mounting pressure and public outcry, Oba Elegusi has not addressed the allegations, leaving the traditional institution vulnerable to unprecedented ridicule and disgrace.

In response to the escalating crisis, prominent figures within the traditional and royal circles have called for urgent intervention. Erelu Oodua Mabel Tinuade Onaneye, among others, has urged Oba Ademola Elegusi to issue a categorical statement addressing the accusations to uphold the sanctity of the royal values in Yorubaland.

Furthermore, appeals have been made to influential traditional rulers, including the Lagos State Council of Obas and the Yoruba Heritage Forum under the leadership of Ooni of Ife Adeyeye Babatunde Ogunwusi, to swiftly intervene and mitigate the damage inflicted upon the esteemed traditional institution.

As the controversy continues to unfold, the integrity of the traditional institution hangs in the balance, underscoring the imperative for swift and decisive action to restore public trust and preserve the dignity of the royal heritage.
