It’s rumored that he started music as a fluke. A friend of his who was looking for a partner to form a rap group approached him and asked whether he could rap? And even though he couldn’t rap and never took music seriously at that time. He, nevertheless, accepted the challenge. From there he started learning how to polish his skills as a songwriter and took an interest in music to another level.

“In order to hone my craft, I started reading plenty of books, particularly dictionary, kamusi and kamusi ya methali. I also started downloading and printing lyrics of my favorite hip hop artist and examining them as it were. I used to analyze the way they arrange their words, syllables, metaphors, rhymes and so on. And this really helped me a lot to broaden my horizon musically speaking.” Rafik Saba explains.

Today Rafik Saba has three songs under his belt- letting go, mwanangu and my philosophy, and one video. His latest video titled “my philosophy” can be found on YouTube and on his Facebook page {Rafik Saba} as well.

Rafik Saba dreams of enlightening as many people as possible through his music. In fact, he says, “I’m not doing music just to entertain, be famous and make a lot of money. I want to make music that will enlighten minds, inform and educate. My dream is to EMTM enlighten minds through music. This is not just a dream it’s a goal that I’m determined to achieve.”
