Mohbad shares his sophomore EP- “Blessed“, Today June 30, 2023, After the successful release of the singles; ‘Ask About Me‘ and ‘Pariwo‘. The Feel Good crooner embraces equanimity on this new project which consist of 8 tracks featuring Zlatan & Bella Shmurda.
BLESSED EP– With his signature baritone-tinged vocals, off-kilter vocal tics and immersive stories of beating the odds, Ikorodu-born rapper/singer MohBad has emerged as one of the leading exponents of street-pop. Whether it’s on the scorching pop anthem “KPK” or exploring the intricacies of heartbreak and betrayal on the Rexxie-produced “Peace” MohBad flexes his rich linguistic imagination and calls on a deep trove of lived experiences for inspiration from track to track.
On his sophomore EP, Blessed, MohBad wholeheartedly settles into his role as one of street-pop’s foremost emissaries, praising his ardent supporters and delivering a warning to his naysayers. Across eight tracks, the singer deftly steps away from the jocularly mischievous persona that his Light EP (2020) presented.
On “Beast & Peace‘”, the singer gently rides over a scenic piano-led instrumental to deliver a statement about his resolve to be successful and provides a glimpse into that vision on “Sabi“. As with all things MohBad, the energy ascends: fellow ikorodu native Zlatan joins for a startling flex on “Account Balance” while close friend and creative partner Bella Shmurda adds a new dimension to the konto-inflected “Pariwo“. Still, the undisputed highlight of Blessed remains “Ask About Me” where Mohbad channels mob flick mysticism while remaining achingly poetic enough to stir the heart.
Listen and Enjoy!
