Personal Life

Mohbad was born on June 8, 1996 in Ketu area of Lagos State.


In December 2019, Mohbad achieved success when he was signed to the newly established record label, Marlian Music Records, owned by Naira Marley.

Since then, he has collaborated with a diverse range of artists including Oladips, Rexxie, Micee, Bella Shmurda, Lil Frosh, C Blvck, Zinoleesky, and Naira Marley.

One of his notable collaborations was in 2020 with award-winning producer Rexxie, where they released the street anthem single, ‘KPK (Ko Po Ke)’.

The song was a chart-topping hit for several weeks on Street Pop and Afrobeats charts, contributing to Mohbad's growing fame and fanbase, and introducing him to the international music community.


In February 2022, Mohbad and Zinoleesky were arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at their residence in Lekki.

Reacting to the arrest, Naira Marley, who has a case with the NDLEA, condemned the action, adding that it is starting to look like a pattern.

Soon after, he disclosed that Mohbad have been released after the anti-drug agency physically assaulted him.

However, Mohbad asked the public to hold Naira Marley and the crew of Marlian music responsible if anything happens to him.

On his Instagram Live, the singer called for help, saying he does not want to die. Mohbad also mentioned names of the Marlian crew asking the public to hold them responsible if he dies.

In October 2022, Mohbad alleged that his life was being threatened on the order of Naira Marley by members of Marlian Music.

Naira Marley alleged that all Mohbad had said had been under the influence; this was later debunked by Mohbad himself, who later issued a notice of contract termination to the head of Marlian music.
