Autopsy reveals drug reaction as possible cause of Mohbad’s death

The autopsy conducted on the body of late singer Mohbad has revealed the possible cause of his death.

The result of the autopsy conducted at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) was obtained by TheCable Lifestyle on Thursday.

According to the report, samples of the gastric content, blood, bone marrow, liver, kidney, and lung of the late singer were retrieved for a toxicology test.

The anatomical and pathological findings revealed that Mohbad had an injury on his right forearm and his body was exhumed with moderate to severe decomposition.

The autopsy also showed that “no significant gross finding” could be attributed to the singer’s death.

The toxicology “revealed the positive finding of Diphenhydramine, an anti-histamine; however, this concentration was not in a fatal or lethal range”.

Anti-histamines are medicines used to treat symptoms of allergies. They are also used to treat a variety of other conditions such as stomach problems, colds, and anxiety, among others.

The report said the cause of death could not be ascertained. It, however, added that there is a possibility of drug reaction in view of any significant post-mortem and toxicology findings.

“It is noteworthy that the body neither had an autopsy nor embalmed prior to interment on the second day,” the report states.

“Following the Order for Exhumation, the body was exhumed on 21/09/2023 (8 days after the burial).

“Autopsy revealed moderate to marked decomposition of organs. Apart from the superficial injury on the right forearm, no significant gross finding could be attributed to death.

“Against this background, samples were taken for toxicology. This is to determine if there was any anaphylactic reaction, substances of abuse, overdosage or common household poisoning.

“Toxicology revealed positive findings of Diphenhydramine, an anti-histamine; however, this concentration was not in a fatal or lethal range. The other analytics were unremarkable.

“In determining fatal anaphylactic shock, blood sample needs to be taken as quickly as possible.

“Unfortunately, this was prevented or made impossible by the burial of the deceased on the second day. In the light of the foregoing, cause of death could not be ascertained.

“However, the possibility of a fatal anaphylactic shock (drug reaction) could be considered in view of the absence of any significant post mortem and toxicology findings.”

There have been speculations that the ‘Man Down’ hitmaker was pregnant for the third time in three years for A$AP Rocky, her partner.

She said she wants to have as many kids as God wants, adding that she is hoping for a daughter.

“As many as God wants me to have. I do not know what God wants, but I would go for more than two. I would try for my girl. But of course if it is another boy, it is another boy,” she said.

DJ Cuppy, the Nigerian disc jockey, says she is applying to study for another academic degree.

The celebrity DJ, the daughter of billionaire businessman Femi Otedola, recently took to Instagram to reveal that she “loves learning”.

Cuppy said after performing at a show, it dawned on her to pursue another academic degree.

“So, I am at home at the moment. I finished a DJ gig and I started working on an application for something pretty important. And I have decided to go back to school. I already have three degrees but I love learning,” she said.

“The university I am applying to, obviously is very academically and their application is pretty rigorous. And I just felt quite discouraged. I am 31 now. My brain does not work like it needs to. I was looking at the prerequisite readings and I was like how am I going to do this. And I realised I have done it before I can do it again.”

Born Florence Otedola, the entertainer also shared a copy of her certificate on social media.

In October 2021, the singer commenced her master’s degree programme in African Studies at Oxford University.

Cuppy completed her thesis which is the required academic research work the following year. She said although she did not get merit or distinction, she is glad to have passed the thesis.

Last year, Cuppy bagged her third degree and second master’s (MSc) from the University of Oxford, England.
