Mohbad, a gifted rapper and singer from Ikorodu, has firmly established himself as one of the well-known figures in the world of street-pop by releasing his sophomore project, “Blessed.” This is thanks to his distinctive baritone-tinged vocals, unconventional vocal nuances, and captivating narratives that chronicle triumph over adversity.
In his much awaited sophomore EP, properly titled Blessed, Mohbad fully embraces his position as one of street-pop’s leading ambassadors, showing appreciation to his devoted fans while issuing a caution to his skeptics.
Whether he is releasing the contagious energy of the scorching pop anthem “KPK” or delving into the complex worlds of heartbreak and betrayal on the Rexxie-produced “Peace,” MohBad effortlessly displays his vivid linguistic imagination and draws inspiration from a rich reservoir of personal experiences, track after track.
The adept musician skillfully departs from the mischievously humorous attitude he portrayed in his prior EP, Light, which was released back in 2020, spanning eight tracks. As might be expected from Mohbad’s discography, the EP’s excitement level keeps rising.
Together with fellow Ikorodu native Zlatan, they provide an exciting flex on “Account Balance,” and Bella Shmurda, a close friend and collaborator, adds a compelling layer to the “Pariwo” with konto infusion. With “Blessed,” Mohbad has created a body of work that skillfully combines artistic depth with street-pop aesthetics. So, give it a listen today, as it’s already available on all major streaming platforms.
