Mazen was born in Beirut during the Lebanese civil war. With the sounds of war still sitting in the ears, he was thrown into Gårslev school with Danish skills equal to zero. Not surprisingly, and according to the teachers’ expectations Mazen had a turbulent schooling. He was expelled from four different schools. He was soon incarcerated with only a little booklet of poems and lyrics tucked into his jacket pocket.
In 2013 his lyrics and songs were used in the music group Lagix with the hit single “Love You”. The single opened the doors for a tour in the Middle East, radio rotation of over 179 stations and a top location on the international charts. The group visited several talk shows with interviews and live performances to around 50 million people.
Mazen latest release “Woman” is one of the very most popular Danish recitations of poetry on social media and youtube. Mazen has now designed the concept of talking thoughts and is the founder of a consultancy of the same name, spoken thoughts. Mazen is finalizing its future talked-thoughts-collection that stands out from the traditional collection of poems.
