Universal Music’s multiple award-winning singer and songwriter

•My highlight this year was releasing three original songs and music videos. My song Fool For You was number one on the charts in Anghami’s most downloaded tracks, while my other song Wanderlust was number 4 on the top pop charts.

•The UAE is so special to me because I grew up here and I owe my career and my success to the support of the country and its amazing people. It has shaped me to be the person I am today. My local friends have welcomed me since the very beginning.

•I write songs that are inspired by personal experience and the experiences of others. As an artiste, I believe it’s important for us to be empathetic. I’m always imagining myself in other peoples’ shoes and I am able to write my music and share their stories.

•I feel like in order for us to see a big difference in the world, we need to make big changes. A ban on single-use plastics would be a great start. I don’t like to use plastic bags. I either hold the products I buy or use my backpack or a reusable bag, whenever possible.

•You can get anything you want in life as long as you help enough people get what they want.
