A guest post by Madam CJ
RAHBI, an Atlanta native, comes from an energy that continues to produce musical Legends, Statements, Superstars, and Icons. Musical goddess Erykah Badu has dubbed RAHBI as “Pure Light” and he’s even gained the respect of his contemporaries Janelle Monae’, PJ Morton of Maroon 5, & Lauryn Hill. RAHBI’s artistry has been compared to performing giants Rick James, Prince, Madonna, David Bowie, & Lady Gaga.
RAHBI is an Arabic name. My fathers mother is Muslim, my mothers mom is Christian, and I’m the love that connects the two!
What does it mean?
Master Teacher, GOD.
YAAAAAAS! How did you know you were blessed with the gift of song?
I guess it started in church. My grandfather, who is the pastor of a Pentecostal church in downtown Atlanta, would always make me sing during services. The experience was always frightening yet rewarding. I was extremely insecure about my voice as a child. However, the applause from the crowd would help calm my nerves. Along with the money grip hand shakes my grandfather gave me after service! lol
What is your creative process? For putting together shows and for songwriting?
People often want to know your preference, your “T”… Tell them what you want them to know please sir.
Where will RAHBI be in the next 2 years? As an artist and as a businessman?
