When it comes to entertainment, people generally fall into two categories – performers and fans. Performers tend to uplift and inspire fans in their daily endeavors, and they often plant the seeds for the next generation to follow in their footsteps. As a result, many young dreamers embark on a journey into the industry. Joining that journey is up-and-coming artist Felix the Sultan, who is well on his way to becoming one of the biggest names in the music industry.
Born in Africa as Felix Abdul, he admired the music scene of the United States for years and made it his goal to pursue a professional career there. When he was older, Felix finally took the opportunity to live “the American Dream,” immigrating to the land of freedom. Knowing how the music scene is, Felix adopted the moniker, “The Sultan.”
As The Sultan, Felix has become a successful figure not only in entertainment but also digital marketing industries. Residing in New York City, he has made a name for himself as a celebrity party promoter. Felix the Sultan has worked alongside many well-known hip-hop artists and social media influencers, including 50 Cent, Trey Songz, Wiz Khalifa, Coi Leray, and many others. Since coming to America, the rising artist has become a staple in the New York City nightlife, representing the textbook definition of the American Dream. From the finest and most upscale and legendary venues in the Big Apple to building and maintaining relationships with some of the world’s most renowned artists, actors, and actresses, Felix the Sultan has come a long way to fulfilling his goal.
Since coming to America, Felix the Sultan has worked tooth and nail to get to where he is today. He is the owner of African Money Team and Lions Marketing Group. Felix has also established himself as the gatekeeper to the world of African money and power and became a local intercontinental favorite for clients and celebrities across the country. His level of professionalism and service is renowned for being impeccable and known as an upper echelon in quality.
With a significant platform, Felix the Sultan decided it was time to shift his career. A fan of the rap genre, he decided to delve into the music scene. Already a charismatic figure, Felix was backed by his supporters who believed his journey would only lead to more success. Passionate about his endeavors, the celebrity promoter decided to transition into a full-time musician.
Throughout his life, Felix has expressed a passion for music, particularly the hip-hop genre. To help navigate the industry from a perspective that was different from his usual scene, veteran NYC artists Dax Mpire and RRose RRome decided to collaborate with him to work on his upcoming EP, Night Life.
Produced by GQ Beats, Night Life is a testament to Felix the Sultan’s relentless grind and passion for rap. The EP contains an infectious energy that will rock the room from wall to wall. Recently, the rising musician released his debut single “Movieee,” which is available for streaming on all music platforms. “Movieee” is just a snippet of what’s to come once the EP is released.
Felix the Sultan’s massive success in the nightlife is no accident and only gives listeners a sneak peek into his journey into music. With Night Life set to release soon, Felix hopes that he will be able to contribute more to the hip-hop scene and produce a number one hip-hop album.
