Having experienced life in Canada’s largest social housing neighbourhood, Mustafa has deﬁned personal success in terms of helping his community succeed. Finding his voice through poetry, he took part in workshops - inspiring young people with his thoughts on the minority youth experience - while also leading school theatre and tutoring programs.
Recently, Mustafa has been working to evolve his art, collaborating with accomplished producers on a new musical direction to follow up his 2014 poetry EP. He hopes to use his writing skills to touch hearts, minds and inspire younger generations to be more active in the world. Last year, Mustafa toured Canada, performing at every We Day across the nation, alongside speakers and performers such as Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom. Mustafa was also the Youth Poet Laureate of the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto and is on the Prime Minister’s Youth Council. Mustafa has opened up for artists such as Jhené Aiko and Pharaohe Monch and has performed alongside Margaret Atwood and Nelly Furtado. Mustafa was a co-writer on the Weeknd’s song “Attention” from his new album Starboy. You can learn more about Mustafa’s work by visiting www.mustafathepoet.com.
