Popular Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, professionally known as Oxlade, has revealed that he has been receiving death threats for restricting the account of the late Nigerian singer, Mohbad.
Although the ‘Kulosa’ crooner deleted the screenshot, Nigerians have continued to attack and criticize him harshly.
Addressing the issues on his Instagram page on Friday, he revealed that the goal of restricting Mohbad’s account was not to chastise or ignore him, but rather to allow him to adequately respond to his chat.
He further lamented that he had been receiving death threats over the development but maintained that he didn’t take those threats personally.
He wrote, “Note: I only restrict accounts I have a personal relationship with because my label runs my account in order not to miss important bookings and business conversations.
“So the restricted account is a way of pointing out to my label that the messages from these accounts are private and come from my close friends.
“I have been getting death threats ever since the event was unveiled but I don’t take anything personal because everything happens for a reason.
“You can silence me with a scandal but you can never dim my light. Imole season for a reason. Love; Gaza.”
