As a Ugandan refugee amidst the Idi Amin influence, moving continents not only ensured Shabs’ safety but allowed him to get his big breakthrough DJ-ing at house parties and club nights. Shabs is now the founder and MD of Relentless Records. He serves as an empowering voice that champions diversity whether through talent and music or through his efforts to recruit and retain a workforce that is inclusive. In 2020, Shabs was involved in Sony’s company celebrations for South Asian Heritage Month.
