WHO is AFNAN PRINCE ?
Afnan Prince moved to the UK from Pakistan with his family at the age of nine years old. Always a creative spirit, he writes songs and poetry and started to play guitar in his mid-teens.

Signed by Deuce Management, his EP was released in 180 countries and, after being approached with offers to become a model, the world of musical theatre opened up for him to appear in productions of Aladdin and Alice in Wonderland, leading to a finalist placement in Andrew LLoyd Webber’s Superstar. We caught up with Afnan Prince when he was recently in London, where he was an invitee on the guest list of a showcase event at Yamaha Music London to find out what he has been writing and what he has been doing musically when he isn’t in front of the photographer. It was an opportunity to connect to the real person and not just a photographic image .. and it turns out he is a man with plans and a vitality for the creation of cross- over style music fusion which combines contemporary styles with a fusion of his family’s heritage style musical background and culture .
