Featured Artist


How did you get into music?

I have always been into music. My passion for it started when I was about 13 years old. At the age of 17, I was around a lot of homegrown artists like Timothy Vaughn AKA ‘Young Vaughn’. I was there when he was working on his albums, shooting music videos, and during recording sessions at the studio, which helped me learn how to sample beats and how to record my own music.

Who are the artists, or people, who inspire you?

Young Vaughn is definitely one of the people that inspired me to do what I do and one of the biggest influences in my career so far.

What are your latest musical accomplishments?

I was recently part of Fire in the Booth – UAE Edition with the legendary Charlie Sloth. It is yet to be released but I am really excited for the world to see it. I was also invited to perform at the Flash Live; Eid Celebrations in 2020 during lockdown which allowed me to continue sharing my music with my fans. Before that I had the chance perform at Sole DXB and at the Yasalam After Race Concerts, opening for Future and Gucci Mane which was insane.

What are your latest releases?

Khali Wali and Shwaya are my latest two releases. I am really proud of these songs and what they represent for me.

Are you working with any other artists now?

I will have to keep that for the album release ?

How has your experience with Flash Entertainment (ETC, opening act for Future & Gucci Mane) helped

you grow as an artist? I loved the experience of being part of the Emerging Talent Competition. It was a great experience during quite an early stage of my career and I benefited a lot from the workshops the platform provided me. The experience taught me a lot about the inner workings of the music industry and being around a lot of talented artists really inspired me.

Opening up for Future & Gucci Mane at du Arena was a milestone for me. I was performing in a venue I used to work in as an usher and in the ticket box office! It made me realise nothing is impossible I was manifesting that day for 10 years and it happened. Let’s not forget it’s in my own city it felt different than anything I’ve done. Dreams get bigger after accomplishing something like that which is beautiful. I woke up the next day with new goals new future.

What is your involvement in the Regional Artist Spotlight mean to you?

What the platform is aiming to achieve is fantastic for artists like me in the region. Being able to be featured across so many different channels will open up my music to my fans and potentially a new group of fans who don’t know it yet. I have heard about some of the artists that will be featured as part of Regional Artist Spotlight and the line-up is incredibly talented and diverse and will definitely shine the spotlight on some of the best artists the region has."
