Mo Benjamin steps out with Sink or Swim
The track, which comes with a video, is gradually picking up on air. It reveals Mo’s artistry and creative intelligence, which is not always associated with a newcomer in the music scene.
His lyrics show the two multi-faceted choices life and its hurdles throws at us. With his critical music studies and consciousness, the talented singer understands what good music is and is here to contribute his style and knowledge to the rising scene of alternative musicians in Nigeria.
A graduate of the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, Mo, makes a bold appearance into the Afropop and alternative music scene with this heartfelt, thought-provoking song produced by the ace music producer, Mela. Filmmaker, Blessing Uzzi of Eccentric Media and the brain behind Cobhams Asoquo’s Starlight video directed the video.
With his emergence into the bustling music industry, it is hope that his good blend of acoustics, night gale voice, and amazing song writing skill will make a force to reckon with, as he come to stay.
Born on February 7, 1993, singer, songwriter, dancer and choreographer, describes his music as alternative Afro-Pop/Soul. He added that he discovered his love for performing at an early age, as he was raised in a musical family.
Growing up, he watched his uncle perform concerts in Nigeria, and that greatly impacted his pursuit for a career in music. He started performing in school musicals, and then decided to move to Los Angeles to hone his musical craft and follow his dream as a solo artist.
Armed with a degree in vocal performance and recognizing the growing music industry in Africa, Mo decided to move back to Nigeria and continue pursuing his musical dreams.
