Lebanese-Dubai based rapper N1yah dropped a video for her track "Die Alone" & I for one wants to support her. We don't have many female MC's in the region and we really need to start pushing our sisters out there to get on the mic and start representing..

"We're born alone, we die alone and I want to people to let go the negative incidents that happened to them and live the moment" N1yah says abot the track

I will be interviewing N1yah this week and will hopefully post the video interview on my Youtube page, till then go show love!

Pic by Ashekman


#ASHEKMAN 's #OperationSalam will cover 85 rooftops, 385,000 square meters by a gigantic Arabic calligraffiti of the word "سلام" (peace in Arabic) in Kuffi calligraphy that can only be seen from space. 




"We will need 12 days to finish this huge project. We worked for more than 4 years on this idea and we finally found the right spot, in the North of Lebanon, precisely in the infamous ex-war zone Beib el Tebbeneh  and Jabal Mehsen , an area that was almost destroyed by internal conflicts and guerrilla war." ASHEKMAN 

Salute to Ashekman for always being pioneers. Keep updated by following their Instagram below

ABRI & FUNK RADIUS RELEASE VIDEO FOR "SUNNY DAZE" | Directed by FREEK TV


Emirati singer/songwriter "Abri" alongside his group Funk Radius just released a video for their track "Sunny Daze". I had the honor to interview Abri and also catch this track performed on my show.

I fell in love with it and the vibe. Abri is considered a legend in the UAE scene not to mention that hes mad talented. I am so happy to see him release videos/songs. 

This video is so cool, given that it's also directed by "Freek" who is one of the best at this in the city. When I asked Freek how was it working with Abri, he said " Humble man, been seeing him on TV since I was a teen.. and now I am collaborating with him to direct a video for him. It's an honor.." 



And this is what Abri had to say "I am excited about releasing Abri & Funk Radius 'Sunny Daze (Ankabūt)', our new single and video exclusively on Anghami. The song and video were done a while back so i was itching to get it out there so that people could hear it and watch the amazing video (shoot and edited by Freek T.V) at the same time, that way they get the whole experience. The song and video go hand in hand.'"

& When I asked him about the spider, Abri said " The Spider is symbolic. It represents the female and fate. The choices that we make construct our lives. SO if you do good things then good things happen but if you make bad choices, then...




The video was released EXCLUSIVELY on Music Streaming Service "Anghami" - Check it out below. Dope Song. Dope Visuals.

Abri is BACK!

SHÉBANI,BIG HASS, HAMZA HAWSAWI, RAYAN & DJ LIUTIK - PHOTO BY: WALEED SHAH

9th Sept,2017 will be a night to remember not only because it featured two of the best singes/songwriters we got in Arabia but because it proved that the crowd will vibe/rock with original music performed by local/regional artists. 

I got so much to say but I will leave this blogpost to share with you few pictures from that incredible night. Saudi sensation "Hamza Hawsawi" proved once again he's a force to reckon with not only in the Middle-East but in the world. Shébani's hard passion & dedication are admirable and something that should be respected. I am also very proud of producer/performer/genius "RAYAN" who really set up a great and entertaining show. 100% of the music performed that night was his production! Dj Liutik who opened up the night was also incredible in setting up the mood for the night and putting everyone in the right vibe in between sets. 

It was an honor to put together and host this event. Thank you to everyone that showed up & supported. There were so many artists hanging out together & showed love. It felt amazing seeing all these artists chatting/talking after the show. At the end of the day we ONE movement...One Unit striving to showcase talent do exists in the Middle-East and it's in everyone of us. We just need platforms to showcase and that's hopefully what I tried to do that night...

Here are some pix from that night... THE BEAT is officially LIVE in Dubai..On to the next one.
