I Mountain Black, the second half of the Danfo Drivers duo which Mad Melon, now deceased, was a part of, spoke on his partner’s death.

“He was neglected (by the music industry). We became popular in 2003, and we had been managing ourselves since then. I believe that with God, all things are possible. We believed in ourselves, and that is why we were still relevant in the industry till now. The industry is very wide; you can fix yourself anywhere and make your money. We were, also, both involved in transportation business.” he said.

When asked about the nature of his illness, Mountain Black stated that he is not a doctor and can therefore can’t speak to the nature of Mad Melon’s illness, but he did say he was told the singer wasn’t feeling well and when told to hurry over, he reached there only to find his partner dead.

He did thank the people of Ajegunle whom he said had been very supportive in this time of sadness.

Mountain Black said he would miss Mad Melon whom he called his ‘brother’. May his soul rest in peace.
