Alim Kamara is a talented rapper, storyteller  and poet who came from humble beginnings in Sierra Leone but grew up in London where his drive to inspire was influenced by society and his African background. His lyrics and poetry content evokes empowerment and liberation. His music crosses all boundaries appealing to the masses, and his words flows delicately into the minds of the listener.

 

Alim attended Middlesex University where he exceeded his expectations by not only graduated with a first class honours degree in creative and media writing, he also wrote the signature poem for the University (featured in the graduation materials 2007//08). Alim also received The Edna Fuller prize in recognition for being an outstanding student in English and allied subjects who made a significant contribution to the University.

 

His passion for children has extended to founding an inspirational programme in his home village in Sierra Leone, which has transformed 600 lives in just 2 years. The programme A-Scholars aims to help children faced with limited education materials and impoverished well-being through motivational talks and also offers supplies for the daily functions of a school day.

 

Alim's audiences have described their visual and listening experience of his sessions, as beautiful, poetic and amazing.

 

Alim Kamara is an exceptional hip-hop artist from the UK. Known for his poetic delivery, this humble individual passionately provides listeners with an insightful window into everyday life.

 

Audience members have described him as "inspirational" "relevant" and "heartfelt with stage presence".

 

If you are listening out for a "stop, rewind, and play that again" type of artist'.


A MESSAGE FROM ALIM

"Young people must embrace their individuality and celebrate such within each other, I believe that each of them can be whoever and whatever they want to be and the limits can only be set by them. I urge all young people to dream as big and as ostentatiously as they want and as long as they are willing to put the work in, they will succeed and achieve their limitless potential."
