AWARD-winning hip-hop entrepreneur Sabir Hussain – aka Saby Khan – has announced his latest ‘rising star’ signing.

Saby, from East Morton, is working with singer-songwriter Billy Collins – the boyfriend of supermodel, Jodie Marsh.

“It’s great to work with him – I’m planning to book concerts and events in the UK and Dubai,” said Saby.

“Billy is a self-taught musician from a young age whose inspirations include Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Paul Weller, George Ezra, Green Day and Jake Bugg to name but a few.

“He writes his own music and performs his songs live at venues all over the country and has appeared on radio stations and podcasts for many years now.

“Venues he’s performed at include the legendary Ronnie Scott’s, The Blues Kitchen and even BB King’s in Memphis!

“Billy’s set as a solo artist consists of himself and his acoustic guitar – but his style of playing isn’t like the ordinary acoustic guitar musician’s. He incorporates a high rhythm pattern with some lead in there too, making the overall sound extremely exciting. He is a rising star who can take the industry by storm.”
