Oma Mahmud’s catalogue including; an album, three EPs and a handful of singles makes him one of the more accessible emerging rappers in Nigeria. Though previous projects have not been as extended, it allowed him to experiment with his music and redefine his sound while also building a community of fans with features from some of the more renowned acts in today’s pop scene. The trend for innovation in music is for artists to come along and break genre expectations, as well as redefine what’s possible with music.
Just recently, Oma Mahmud leads with his affinity for experimental acoustics on his latest Fela leaning single, Money Problems. Returning from a music scarce year, the singer, led by fusion of disparate but somehow harmonious influences features his best on the Afrobeat Acoustic hybrid that alludes to the volatile nature of money.
Joined by a band consisting of friends and family, Oma Mahmud puts together a tuneful allusion to a common subject; money and the causes of its lack thereof, that parallels the norm and spotlights his incredible talent among other things like the age-old gospel he preaches.
