Ally Salama, renowned for his mental health advocacy and impressive accomplishments as a Forbes 30 under 30 social entrepreneur, is embarking on an exciting new chapter in his life. With a passion for music and a desire to spread mental health awareness, he is embracing his musical alter ego, KairoKid.
About KairoKid – AKA Ally Salama:
KairoKid, formerly known as Ally Salama, is an Egyptian-Canadian artist hailing from Giza. He skillfully blends Arabic, English, and Spanish in his music, creating a mesmerizing sound that resonates globally.
Drawing inspiration from “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, KairoKid believes that his true treasure lies in his roots, no matter how far his music takes him. Collaborating with esteemed producers and engineers in Egypt, he is all set to captivate hearts with his upcoming releases.

His efforts have led to the development of several youth well-being programs, making a positive impact on the Arab world.
From Empowering Minds to Empowering Melodies
While devoting himself to mental health causes, Salama kept his musical aspirations on hold. However, fate had different plans for him. When his efforts to raise funds for EMPWR fell short, he found solace and inspiration in his long-dormant passion for music.
“I’ve always known that I was going to make music. When I failed to raise money for EMPWR, I found myself incapable of escaping my music, which I’d held aside during the past years. Today, I’m proud to have consulted some of the biggest musicians in the Arab world, as I now believe I have what it takes to break a ceiling while making a lasting social impact, globally,” says Salama confidently.
