Shameemah Jahed

"Saalim is one of those artists you simply have to admire. When I first heard his single on radio I felt very proud of him. His music together with his beautiful personality and character makes him quite special. I met Saalim a few years ago and instantly knew that his perseverance and passion for what he does will take him places. A humble, professional guy, we just have to support him in his career!" - 2014
