Marcus SAAFIR was Born in Raleigh, North Carolina. As a child, SAAFIR was part of a local choir at a church his mother attended in Apex, NC. Rather shy, lip singing was his forte before discovering he truly had a gift. Driven by his mothers belief of her child’s stardom, he became interested in music and the message we as listeners grasp from it. At a young age, he began to express himself through lyric, writing his first verse with his older brother at the age of eight. “Lyrics took me away to worlds I could control because I wasn’t ready to deal with the realities of my childhood.” Soon after, role models in his environment agreed that music was his calling. SAAFIR is a singer-songwriter/entertainer experimenting in Pop, Rock, Soul, R&B, Hip Hop & more. He is affiliated with Grammy award nominated producer Lee Major Kid of So Major Music, Immanuel Jordan Rich (Executive Producer) of Marques Houston latest album "Famous," LB of ReverseSpin ENT of Earl the Pearl Monroe, Reggie Huggins of Flynstonez Productions (KC & Jo Jo platinum album & Mary J Blige - Mary Album), & Nickelus F who is affiliated with Toronto's very own Drake. Inspired by artist like Fred Astaire, Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke, Prince, Musiq Soulchild, Silk, Kanye West, Nas and more, his rhythmic schemes, lovable harmonies and soul touching lyrics will bring you back to the better days. He has not released his 1st album but does have a few mixtapes & singles out now. Overall, the loss of his mother & her words of wisdom lightens his journey to stardom. Jan 31st 1957 - Sept 30th 2008. "The mission is to get my brother off these streets! To inspire, and to change emotions that lead to changing the world."
Its all a matter of time. Stay humble, keep god first, think positive & most importantly become a fan. - SAAFIR
