Fahad is a spoken word poet whose work centres around identity, family, faith and the occasional Pokémon reference.
He is the former captain of the Durham University Slam Team which came first in Slam of the North 2018 and third at Unislam 2019 and starting in October he will be co-president of the University’s Poetry Society. He is a 2019 Roundhouse Slam finalist and will be participating in the BBC’s Words First Program in partnership with Apples and Snakes.
Fahad is also a part of a spoken word band called the Poetry Experiment which blends poetry with the sounds of Hip Hop, contemporary jazz and neo soul. They are currently working on putting together a pair of EPs for an early release in 2020.
