Mohbad spreads the Street gospel with ‘Blessed’
It was Anne Frank who said that beauty remains even in misfortune, and for Mohbad, this statement resonates strongly.
After a bitter public split with Marlian Record under whose management he rocketed to fame, Mohbad had to rebuild the rubbles of his career and set forth on his own to reconnect with the listeners he had previously dazzled with an array of hit songs.
Mohbad efforts to find his voice after the infamous split from his former imprint has culminated in the release of two singles ‘Ask About Me’ where he reiterated his place in the scheme of things and ‘Pariwo’ with close associate Bella Shmurda where he reminded listeners of his hitmaking credentials.
Having found his voice, Mohbad puts out his sophomore EP ‘Blessed’ which captures his resilience, gratitude, and positive mindset as he forges into the future.
The underlining theme of the ‘Blessed’ is a celebration of triumph and a show of gratitude that comes together to make it a quintessential street gospel created to uplift, inspire, and delight listeners.
Mohbad is an artist with different influences which he fuses with music to create a pathway that reminds listeners of different stars. From 9ice to Naira Marley down to Gospel and Fuji influences, Mohbad fuses elements that capture different facets of the street.
Mohbad creates his EP from a reflective position where he leans into his religious roots to pull himself out of a dark hole and he celebrates his emergence from this career-trying experience by crafting a Street gospel.
He expresses his gratitude to a higher power in ‘Beast & Peace’ where he flows leisurely and reiterated this mindset in ‘Sabi’ where he effortlessly molds and celebrates his triumph while returning all glory to God.
In the Swing bounce ‘Blessing’, he crafts a gospel record as he reveals turning to God in his trying times while encouraging others of the enduring grace that saved.
