Muscat: Music mogul Sami Yusuf is all set to perform live at a show to be held at the Grand Hall of the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) on August 30. The show will be organised by Black & White in association with Bandera Events LLC.
This will be the debut performance by the accomplished British singer-songwriter, composer, producer and musician who has won the hearts and minds of millions from across the Middle East, Europe, North America and North Africa.
Considered one of the biggest messenger of love, hope and peace in the Islamic world, Sami Yusuf, 33, who entered record books after a staggering 250,000 people packed the Taksim Square in Istanbul, Turkey to see him perform, is seen by many of his fans as nothing less than a phenomenon.
Hailed by The Guardian as the ‘most famous British Muslim in the world,’ Sami, who has now gained further international recognition with his latest album, Salaam, has expressed great interest in performing in Oman before his fans here, the organisers said.
Crowds who throng the multi-million selling star’s shows claim that he is one of them and are ready to die for him. His music has not only filled the airwaves in London and LA but also penetrated the Arabian Peninsula.
Many fans say his music has changed their lives for the better. His albums have sold millions of copies and are still in high demand. Now, this musical sensation is training his eyes on Oman. The tickets priced at OMR10, 20 and 30 will be on sale soon. For more details, call 24565697 or mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
