For Nashville’s Mokita, music is undoubtedly an honest and deeply personal form of expression. The experienced singer, songwriter, producer, and classically-trained musician has been crafting heavenly, electro-pop gems for the better part of the past decade, and is definitely blowing up in 2020, amassing millions of plays and almost 2.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Taken from Kivila, a language native to Papua New Guinea, the word Mokita roughly translates to “the truth we all know but don’t talk about”, something that defines Mokita’s relatable songwriting, and more so his latest solo single ‘Bad”. Out independently, “Bad” is an expertly-written ballad laced with tasteful and minimal production. Mokita’s stunning singing voice and harmonies are found in the forefront, while they are twisted and manipulated in the infectious chorus, resulting in a fresh pop vibe. Already having collaborations with massive names such as R3HAB and GOLDHOUSE under his belt, as well as over 20 million streams on Spotify with his original 2018 tune “Love Alone”, Mokita is definitely not slowing down anytime soon.
