MUSIC: Mehanim – Addiction | @mehanim


Port Harcourt, NIG — Here is a brand new track from a 17 year old rapper Mehanim titled “Addiction”. He raps with the wisdom of a sage way beyond his age. He also raps with such mastery and impeccable delivery that clearly defies his age.

People struggle with addictions everyday. Ever struggled with one? Are you still struggling with some?

There’s good news. You can break free from it all.


Mehanim is not new to music. He’s been recording songs as far back as when he was 14years old. One remarkable thing about him is that he puts money together on his own to go to the studio to record the songs he has released so far.

Mehanim is passionate about Christ – it shows in his music. He is passionate about reaching teens and older people with the gospel. His uncanny delivery and dedication to recording songs that are above average has earned him a place in the hearts of those who listen to him and yes, it has gotten him invited to minister on several platforms and courted by some platforms that want to sign him up.

Going further with the gospel is what’s on this young rapper’s mind. He is currently with the ministry managerial imprint of one of gospel music’s visibility experts.

He previously released a song called SUICIDE and today, we officially unveil Mehanim’s brand new and very much awaited single, ADDICTIONS. We have the lyrics here too…. Let’s get free from addictions!


(Mehanim – Verse 1)

Men I’m not as pure as the Vatican
But is sin only for Africans?
I thought Holiness is non-partisan
I’m tryna get to God, but I’m a manikin.

Getting high on Heineken
Girl in room, eyes frolicking
My mind dirty, my eyes dirty
She’s feeling cold, she need a cardigan

Not Again! Not Again!

Men who can make me whole again?
I was holy, now I’m a holigan
A holigan?!

Flesh in control again

And I’m tryna find ways to comfort me

Cos whenever I quit one consciously,

Some others grab spears and they come for me!

(Mehanim – Chorus)

We’ve got struggles, we’ve got pain

If we behold the lamb slain

And the promises He made

I swear He’ll wipe every stain

He’ll break every chain:

There’s remedy in the scriptures

All these are but light afflictions

God can deal with Addictions!

(Mehanim – Verse 2)

Sin is a trending topic

I’m tryna find ways to top it

#‎YOLO (You Only Live Once)’s a harshtag (hashtag)

Cos I’m freaking scared of the trumpet

So I’m tryna find ways to stop it

Found salvation, so I thumbprint

I found Romans 5:17:

I quit tryna Donald Trump it

‘Cos it’s FREE-ly given!

All i got to do was unlock the ribbon

By believing, I’m forgiven

And I got hope that the Son (Sun) is risen

And I hold God by the word in 2 Conrinthians 5:17 that says

… You know what I mean!

Chorus again…

Oh you know

People struggling with Addictions everyday

But sin aint got dominion over you:

‘Cos His strength is made perfect in your weaknesses.


‘Cos you can’t do it on your own

Let God, Let God take control

Are you moving in circles?

He can make you whole (hole)

Make you whole.
