Fans react as U.S. church reportedly honors Mohbad with unique christmas tribute


Fans of the late Nigerian singer Ilerioluwa Aloba, widely known as Mohbad, have poured out their emotions in response to a reportedly touching tribute by an American church three months after his untimely demise.

As the Christmas season unfolded, the church honored Mohbad's memory with a heartwarming display that swiftly gained attention online.

A photo that circulated today depicted an elaborate Santa Claus set-up, a customary festive symbol. However, the distinctive feature of this display was the substitution of the traditional bearded figure with Mohbad's visage adorning Santa's body.
