Naadira Alli

About Naadira Alli

South African born singer, Naadira Alli was born on 22 May 1993 and is the third youngest of seven siblings. This well-rounded young ladu excels at everything she attempts, making parents, Haadia and Mohammed Rafiq, very proud. Naadira’s talent was first identified by Zain Bhikha’s current producer, Jeremy Karodia, who was previously her music teacher at her primary school. Before she was invited to perform on Zain’s latest release, “Allah Knows”, she enjoyed singing casually and exclusively to family members only. Initially, Naadira was chosen as part of the children choral group for the album but her beautiful voice stood out and Zain identified as the ideal solo voice for his song “My Mom is Amazing”. From there, she dueted on “Pizza in His Pocket” and “A Child’s Prayer” with Zain’s son, Rashid. Though young, Naadira shows considerable maturity and is able to adapt her singing style to suit the genre of the various songs. Naadira has participated in many school productions, taking a lead role in most. During 2006, she was the key narrator in her school’s concert, A History of Music. Last year, she played the role of Rafiki in her schools interpretation of the well known production, The Lion King. Apart from being a budding singer, she has also been the top achiever at school from Grade 1. Naadira is also constantly being complimented for her excellence in the recitation of the Holy Quran. Naadira’s other accomplishments include being awarded “Player of the Year” by her football club, Rangers Football Club. In her spare time she enjoys candle making, beadwork, reading and swimming.

" My Mum is Amazing "

She wakes up early in the morning with a smile
And she holds my head up high
Don’t you ever let anybody put you down
Cos you are my little angel

Then she makes something warm for me to drink
Cos it’s cold out there, she thinks
Then she walks me to school, Yes I aint no fool
I just think my Mom is amazing

She makes me feel
Like I can do anything
and when she’s with me
there’s no where else, I’d rather be…

After School, she’s waiting by the gate
I’m so happy that I just can’t wait
To get home to tell her how my day went
And eat the yummy food, only my Mom makes

Then I wind her up cos I don’t wanna bath
And we run around the house with a laugh
No matter what I say, she gets her way
I think my Mom is amazing


In the evening, she tucks me into bed
And I wrap my arms around her head
Then she tells me a tale of a girl far away
Who one day became a princess

I‘m so happy, I don’t want her to leave
So she lies in bed with me
As I close my eyes, how lucky am I
To have a Mom that’s so amazing


Then I wake up in the morning, she’s not there
And I realize she never was
And I’m still here in this lonely orphanage
With so many just like me

And as my dreams begin to fade
I try hard to look forward to my day
But there’s a pain in my heart that’s a craving
How I wish I had a Mom that’s amazing
Would be amazing
