Chike’s popular song “Egwu,” which featured the late street pop icon Mohbad, helped him accomplish this. The song has received commercial praise since it was released in December 2023, particularly on social media, where it has been used over 400,000 times on TikTok.

Since the song’s debut one month ago, Spotify has played it 5.9 million times. The interplay between Mohbad and Chike is what makes “Egwu” stand out. The melody of the song improves its enjoyment and demonstrates a deep comprehension of their respective roles. Their skillfully matched performances create a harmonious masterpiece.

The song also marks Chike’s highest charting entry on TurnTable Top 100 following the ‘Running’ remix. It’s Mohbad’s second No. 1 entry after “Ask About Me,” which topped the chart for a week.

With songs from his two EPs, “Light” and “Blessed,” skyrocketing on streaming services, Mohbad’s music has seen a tremendous commercial rebirth since his dying in September 2023.

His commercial acclaim grows as a result of his successful collaboration with Chike, and he keeps releasing hits from the vast beyond.
