At a young age, he began to express himself through lyric, writing his first verse with his older brother at the age of eight. Soon after, role models in his environment agreed that music was his calling. SAAFIR is a singer-songwriter/entertainer experimenting in Pop, Rock, Soul, R&B, Hip Hop etc. He is affiliated with Grammy award nominated producer Lee Major Kid of So Major Music, Immanuel Jordan Rich (Executive Producer/writer) of Marques Houston latest album "Famous."
