“The Sabab Show” is going to be my Debut tape which I’ve been working on since the past year or so. Don’t want to give too much of it up but just know it will be legendary.
How did you come up with the album name?
The name was thought of before the music aspect or any song was even created for the album. The whole theme of the album makes you feel like your really seeing me perform right in front of you and a crowd. Thus the name, “The Sabab Show.”

Sincerely Yours is a collective of just young creative minds. I don’t want to give out too much information right now but our main focus currently is to put this album out properly.
What’s up next for you?
Videos, shows and finishing up this album!
