Artist Oualid Roshdy from Amsterdam-East born on 16-09-1993 in Ceuta (Spain) better known as his artist name Oualid-R. Oualid-R already knew at the age of 14 what he wanted to become, namely a famous singer / rapper. A real artist like his cousins Yes-R & Ali-B. Together with his other cousin Rakimster, he started looking up at how his famous cousins were doing. He soon learned to rhyme and after a first small performance in a community center in Amsterdam East he soon knew that this is what he wants to be and wants to keep doing. Oualid-r soon learned to write his own texts. His first single "Oualid-R - Die Kleine Dingen" was an internet hit in 2011 and went fast, because Oualid-R suddenly got gigs, lots of viewing figures, a lot of attention from fans and became more and more famous in the scene. He started to release many new songs such as a collaboration and also hit the internet with his cousins Yes-R & Rakimster with the track called "I can't do without you". Oualid-R has also become an example for many young people. He was in the summer of 2012 touring with the "Im In" campaign in Amsterdam. With that he came just about everywhere and made a single called "Oualid-R - do your best". In it he expresses a lot about young people and tried to get them so positive through his texts. This became a huge success, so Oualid-R was fully booked for the “Im in” campaign for the summer of 2013. Apart from his music career, he has always been busy writing and learning to produce for other artists. In 2014, for example, he opened his own studio called NokeyzMusicNL to make his own sound even better and gain more inspiration by producing for other artists and becoming even more musical. Oualid-R did this together with its producer Tommy Zijlstra, who has been producing for Oualid-R since 2011. After 3 successful years they came up with the name NokeyzNL, which was invented as a crew name by Oualid-R and Tommy Zijlstra. But why NokeyzNL? We asked Oualid-R for a short explanation: Why we chose NokeyzNL as a crew name is because we gave them everything (3) for three years (Oualid-R Tommy & Rakimster) to get there. No doors that were opened by ourselves, we had to do our utmost for everything and everywhere to make our voice heard, and we have succeeded so far. That is why we came up with the name Nokeyz, which means nothing else to us than achieving everything on our own. Oualid-R is a growing artist who has many potentials. He is working on many new singles and video clips So Stay Tuned!
