Mohbad has released his sophomore play project, “Blessed,” via Imolenization and ONErpm.
The extended play project “Blessed” boosts guest appearances from Zlatan and Bella Shmurda. With a collection of songs from various genres.
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 album, 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-born Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba deftly steps away from the jocularly mischievous persona that his Light EP (2020) presented.
