Mahdi Adem, better known as Suso FW, is one of the most popular upcoming singers of this generation. His song Lonesome became an instant hit in 2020. But how did Suso FW become a superstar in the music industry? What were his struggles? Here’s everything you need to know about this Gen-X singer.
Suso FW was born in Göteborg on the 30th of July 1999. He comes from a humble family that has nothing to do with music. But Suso FW loved listening to various types of songs from an early age. He would borrow music players from his friends in school to listen to the latest hits. Music and Suso FW were inseparable when he went to school. He wanted to get into songwriting and creating music because the entire process fascinated him. It was overwhelming for Suso FW to see how musicians came up with new tunes and used lyrics that would fit them best.
His passion for creating music kept growing. He would sneak out from his house on weekends to visit his friends and listen to new music for hours. In an interview, Suso FW said, “Music intoxicated me. I was so engrossed in the melodies and instruments that I could spend hours listening to music. Sometimes, I didn’t keep track of time and had to skip meals. But I think it was worth it. The love that people are now showing me seems as if my dream has come true. I didn’t expect to become famous. I just wanted to do my job with everything I had. And since I was into music from a young age, I think that dedication and passion showed in my work.”
Enjoying the success
Suso FW has been making music for more than seven years now. He started with some jingles but wasn’t getting the big-ticket to success. The Gen-X singer and songwriter kept rewriting his songs, made new tunes, and even composed a couple of songs at home. But they were nowhere close to what the big names in the industry produced. No one gave him a chance to shine because of his inexperience.
Suso FW even said, “The problem about being young is no one takes you seriously. They think you are not mature enough or you don’t have the skills to make it big in the music industry. Well, I’m not the only one who started young. There are a few more who became famous musicians in their teens. But I never gave up. I always feel that if you do a job with dedication and work hard towards your goal, you will end up winning.”
It wasn’t long before Suso FW got his well-deserved chance. His song Lonesome (Prod by Lone Wolf and JP Soundz) became a massive hit and was also trending on YouTube in 2020. He even recorded his second single, “Credit,” later that year. This is followed by “Gucci Dior,” a melodic trap song that exemplifies his versatility. Without question, he has what it takes to become a star in the music industry.
