Crime Allegation

In the wake of Mohbad’s tragic demise on September 12th, 2023, Primeboy found himself at the center of a storm, as the public perceived him to be Mohbad’s closest confidant. Their friendship was the stuff of legends, characterized by an extraordinary chemistry that underlined their deep bond.

As the news of Mohbad’s untimely passing reverberated, suspicion shrouded Primeboy. People speculated that he held vital information about the circumstances leading to his friend’s demise, owing to their profound closeness. Law enforcement, recognizing the significance of Primeboy’s connection to Mohbad, repeatedly summoned him for questioning. Despite these official summons, Primeboy chose not to comply, declining to share any insights into the events surrounding his friend’s death.

In a bid to clear his name and assert his innocence, Primeboy took to his social media. He posted a video online vehemently denying any involvement in Mohbad’s demise.
