Singer and Songwriter

 

What I do:

I am a student at Jumeirah College. I will soon go into Year 10 and I’m getting ready to begin my GCSE courses.

My milestone moment:

Hearing my first song, Cold, which I wrote and recorded, playing on the radio. It was so exciting to hear my work getting airtime and even more so because thousands of people were listening to it. It was a great sense of achievement for me. It is now available to listen to on many platforms, including Anghami, Spotify, iTunes, and Amazon Music.

Up next:

I am in the process of creating my next song, which is yet to be titled. However, I am already extremely excited for people to hear it. After its release I’m hoping to put out an EP containing a mix of different styles.
