Khaled Siddiq, born in 1992 in Leicester, UK, was born to two convert parents. In his late teens, he was involved in the mainstream music industry and was on the verge of signing to British record labels. But Allah had different plans for him. At age 19, he fully embraced his faith, Islam, and has never turned back.
In July 2015, he started a Youtube channel, in which he could express himself and his abilities as an artist, entertainer and educator. Over the space of just one year, he has accumulated 90,000 Youtube subscribers, 15 million views and tours the world.
Today, Khaled Siddiq is one of the most recognised nasheed artists across the globe. A Youtuber, singer, actor and presenter, he combines an array of skills into his portfolio making him one of the most diverse and talented Muslims today. A proud Muslim of Jamaican, English and Irish heritage, he believes that providing others with ethical entertainment and dispelling stereotypes about his faith has always been his calling.
