Top Ten With Mohombi

I’m inspired by:


I realized I wanted to play music when:

- Christmas Eve, I was 5, my entire family had me get up on the table and sing a song. I sang Yesterday – Beatles! I haven’t stopped since

Four songs you might find on my iPod:

– Tinie Tempah, Pass out

Bruno Mars – The way you are

Quincy Jones ft. TI, BoB and Mohombi – Sanford and Son

Miguel – All I want is you

One word I would use to describe myself:

- Afro-Viking

The best part of being a musician is:

- The stage!

Right now, I’m most excited about:

- Shooting my next video with Akon!

Something most people don’t know about me is:

- I LOOOOOVE to sleep :)

One of my happiest moments was:

- Seeing the pride on my mothers face @ the Mobo (Music of Black Origin) Awards!

My music is:

- Colorblind

In ten years, I see myself:

– Still recruiting dance floor soldiers around the world

Check out the video for Mohombi’s first single, “Bumpy Ride”, above!

Mohombi’s debut album, Movemeant, will be released early next year – in the meantime, you can buy “Bumpy Ride” on iTunes and keep up with Mohombi on his official website.
