Born in Toronto Canada but raised in Mississauga Ontario Kareem knew at an early age he wanted to become an Entertainer. In Secondary School he was always given the last five minutes of the Class to entertain. Sometimes he would rap for his classmates, dance or even tell jokes. After enjoying the compliments and attention he got from his fellow Classmates Kareem eventually got into Modeling which then lead to Acting as well. His first appearance was as an extra in the Movie “Half Baked” which starred Dave Chappelle, Guillermo Díaz, Jim Breuer and Harland Williams. From that day on he’s gone on to do Commercials, Print Ads, Fashion Shows, Magazine features and even Billboards. He appeared on “Two Kings” playing the role as Frankie. Kareem was featured on three Billboards one for Good life Fitness, another for Samsung and during the Olympics he did one for Coca Cola that was up across the street from the Toronto Eaton Centre. Kareem has been featured in Magazines like Pound, Swagg news and UMM. Some of his Commercials credits include Mellow Yellow, Levis Karaoke, Gatorade and Coke. He was the Sunshine Boy in the Toronto Sun Newspaper and even played Snow’s Friend in his Music video “Legal”. And last but not least he was a top 10 finalist out of 3,000 People on the TV Series “Drafted 2″ the search for Toronto’s next Sports Caster.
Kareem has studied Acting classes at Sears and Switzer and when he’s not Modeling, Acting or writing rhymes. You can catch him working out, playing Chess, watching Sports, shopping for G Shock Watches, Sneakers or Clothes by Ralph Lauren which happens to be his favorite Designer. If you were to ask him why he would make a great entertainer he’d tell you this “for one I feel I have a very unique mix which is Jamaican, Cuban and Syrian. I’m out going, I’m funny and I enjoy making People smile”. Some of his favorite Entertainers are Michael Jackson, LL Cool J, Danzel Washington, Michael Jordan, Halle Berry, Adriana Lima, A Tribe Called Quest and Johnny Depp.
Besides being able to travel, meet and work with really talented People. The main thing Kareem would like from Life and this Industry is to be happy, successful and healthy. And if he’s able to make his Mother retire early too then that would be the icing on the Cake.
