Close Ebrahim Mallum

You can call me Mr Mallum

There are few producers that work in orchestral scoring, cinematic soundscapes and epic original compositions. Mr. Mallum is one of them. We are fortunate enough to have him on our team as a freelancer. Far from a newcomer to the commercial music scene, he has produced for many of South Africa’s most recognised artists, including Loyiso Bala (theme song to the movie, Khumba), Danny K, Gang of Instrumentals, Auriol Hays, Chad Saaiman, Hot Water and Black Noise, to name a few. A number of these productions have won and been nominated for Metro FM and SAMA awards, and have topped radio charts. You can find him at www.mrmallum.com
