INSPIRATION TO SING NASHEED:
Brother Idriss is a man with talent and voice to sing which inspired him to sing nasheed as a means of dawah so that others can benefit from him, he actually started singing nasheed in 2009.
When we asked him what inspires him to start singing nasheed, this was his wonderful reply:
“Ma Shaa Allah, First of all, I want to tell the people out that I was born in a christian home. My father and mother were both christians. But Alhamdulillah by the guidance of Allah, I became a Muslim after my mum reverted to Islam.
I came in to nasheed around 2009 when a very close friend and brother of mine in the deen- Senesie Mansaray told me about a group they wanted to form to sing Islamic song. I was actually a novice in song writing at that time!
I then later attended the first meeting with the Sierra Leone Anasheed Brothers (SLAB); the largest Anasheed body in the Siera Leone and was introduced as a new member. From that time I started the ball rolling with the first song that I composed “Oneness of Islam””.
“I am singing nasheed because i believe it’s a form of dawa. Also I believe i have that voice to sing.
I was motivated by brothers like Senesie, Bizzy Man and Ben Kamara who are the top and most earliest Munsheeds in the Sierra Leone. These guys played a great role in my nasheed career. If you have been listening to some of our local nasheeds you will noticed that I have done so many backups and I have been featured in some.
So I have the talent and I know I can do it, In Shaa Allah!”
First of all I am in a group called the Mujahideen brothers. We have launched 2 audios and one video album. I have also done a colabo album with one of the biggest munsheeds in Sierra Leone and will proudly say he is the father of Nasheed in this country who is none other than-Abdul Rahman Jalloh (Stage named “Bizzy Man”) and Ahmad Sarah Bah who is our Quran legend in an Album titled “Run Away” which is currently flowing with light in the country.
Some of the hits songs were: My Choice, Aljanatoul Firdaous, Oneness of Islam and plenty others. And for the recent BIA collabo, I will say all of the songs are hit songs!
