Excited to be given this opportunity to learn from NPF among other young, motivated, and talented black artists.
Hailing from a small village in West Africa, Karim garnered a following for himself by broadcasting videos singing in the shower every week to millions of young girls online. He was subsequently chosen to compete in the X Factor USA singing competition, where he received a unanimous yes from judges Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland, and Demi Lovato.
After the competition, Karim moved to Los Angeles, CA where he transitioned into the realm of acting, quickly securing a recurring role in a TV show produced by Sony Entertainment, as well as securing a supporting role in a film alongside Martin Sheen.
Currently, Karim resides in North Hollywood where he is working on his debut EP while subsequently pursing acting.
