Ahmad Ikhlas is an international Dub Poet, reggae and garage musician who draws on his Jamaican heritage and his British upbringing to form a unique style of music and poetry, which he uses in praise of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and to send messages of love and empowerment.
Ahmad Ikhlas was born and raised in South London. Although he always had a love of music, a deeper appreciation of music as a means for change and empowerment developed during the rise of the UK garage scene where he was known for his musical abilities and frequented radio stations under his then Moniker Mc Meelos.
It was on the Music scene that Ahmad-Ikhlas became good friends with UK-Apache, Who then invited him to the Mosque.
At the age of 17, while still in school Ahmad embraced Islam. For the first 10 years of his life as a Muslim, he stopped music to form and focus on his spirituality.
Now Ahmad fuses his faith and identity and travels, sharing his experiences and singing songs of praise..
