117Live is proud to announce that Hamza Hawsawi, X Factor Middle East Winner 2015, and Deen Squad, acclaimed Canadian Muslim Duo, will take to the stage on May 6th to wow Dubai audiences as part of the much anticipated Justin Bieber Purpose World Tour.

    Since being crowned the winner of the X-Factor in 2015, Hamza Hawsawi has reigned as the Prince of Arabic and English Pop in the Middle East. With a humble spirit and voice as smooth as silk, Hamza has continued to win the hearts of audiences with his dreamy performances of classic RnB tunes as well as Arabic songs. Audiences can expect this crooner to pull out all the stops during his performance with his unrivalled vocals.

    Deen Squad, combine the raw essence of the urban hip-hop genre with core tenets of spirituality and values in the effort to rouse appreciation of the contemporary Muslim identity in today’s youth. Deen Squad trended worldwide with the hashtag #MuslimsAreNotTerrorist on November 14th 2015 with their popular song “Muslim Man”, based on breaking the stereotypes with being Muslim in the contemporary world. Deen Squad started off by reinventing mainstream music, while giving it a faith based twist; providing meaningful content for the youth to listen to. Today, with over 30 million views internationally, Deen Squad has become the first Muslim rap artists to reach the Top 100 Charts without any distribution or major label support.

    On May 6th, 117Live looks forward to welcoming two amazing acts on stage at what will undoubtedly be, the concert of the year.
