MHD has rocketed to fame in France as one of the most innovative and exciting acts to emerge in a decade, revolutionising the previously-ghettoised afro scene and bringing global attention both to the afrobeat sound and to himself.
His debut album in 2016, simply named MHD, has since gone double platinum in France and gold at international. He has over 650 million plays on Youtube and 388 million streams worldwide. An icon of both music and life-style, MHD, born Mohamed Sylla, is proclaimed as the ‘prince’ of the newly coined ‘afro trap’ scene. By 2017 and only in his early 20s, MHD is selling out at 2 000 capacity venues across Europe, stadiums in Africa, big festivals such as Eurosonic, Meltdown, Dour, Lowlands, Francofolies Montréal, Rhur Reggae Summer…
He is Puma’s new face with an Afrotrap self-designed collection.
Still in his early 20s, MHD has revolutionized the French music scene and is one of the most innovative and exciting new acts from France this decade.
After a US tour and Coachella’s announcement for April 2018, MHD will be back in March with a new album, before starting a French tour.
