On Wednesday, a Spanish club, Cadiz CF, joined the list of global fans to pay tribute to Nigerian singer Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, with a customised Jersey.
The deceased singer died on 12th September at the age of 27. He was buried on 19th September amid controversies.
Announcing the tribute gesture via their X account, the Spanish club said Mohbad’s Jersey would be on their substitute bench during their game against Rayo Vallecano today to give them strength.
“ This tribute at Wednesday’s match is the least we can do to honour and remember @iammohbad_. ⚽️ Let’s hope that his jersey will bring us luck and strength to beat our rival and serve to give voice to his story. Á ”

“Let’s hope that his jersey will bring us luck and strength to beat our rival and serve to give voice to his story,”
Cadiz CF hopes the tribute to Mohbad will help them return to winning ways. The club has failed to win their last two games, securing a loss and a draw.
The club occupy ninth place with eight points in the league table.
Notably, Saturday Erimuya is the only Nigerian and the central defender in the Spanish club.
Since Mohbad’s sudden death, the Nigerian entertainment industry has buzzed with tributes and condolences.
On Monday, Nigerian controversial street artiste Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, paid his last respect to Mohbad in his recent anticipated song.
Portable announced the song, dedicated to the late singer, via his official Instagram page.
Aside from Portable’s new track, Nigerian Afrobeat singer Khaid also dropped a gripping new song named “Forever Let There Be Light (Mohbad),”
Khaid expressed how Mohbad’s death hit him badly. He also noted how the late singer is topping charts after his death.
Khaid, in the one-minute tribute, also talked about how Mohbad spoke about his struggles, but people never paid attention.
Also, Nigerian singer Oritse Femi dished out a new single to pay his respect to the late Mohbad, titled “Tribute To Mohbad.”
The track celebrates the late singer’s legacy and how he left impressive tracks worth listening to.
Saint Haywhy also released a tribute song titled “Voice of the Ghost,” expressing what Mohbad would say as a ghost.
Many of Mohbad’s fans have reacted to the gesture by Cadiz CF. While many find it a fantastic move, others are amazed at how the late singer has attained international acclaim posthumously.
