Anees Performs For The First Time In Los Angeles For WFNM
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…The first artist to perform was the singer/rapper Anees Mokhiber p/k/a “Anees”. Hailing from Washington D.C., Anees saw his audience grow exponentially when Justin Beiber, unprompted, joined him on a casual Instagram Live performance. In the video clip (which you can view in its entirety by clicking the photo above), Justin is praising Anees’ musicality and lyricism. The two had an open discussion about relationships and inspirations.

I didn’t know about Anees’ interaction with Justin prior to seeing him perform, but I can honestly say that I was just as smitten with Anees’ music as Justin was. There was just such a grounded, organic quality to his music that had me instantly hooked. Anees performs like he’s having a conversation with you, effortlessly spitting lyrics and telling his story to eager ears. I didn’t know the dude at all, but his performance- the musical substance and his demeanor on stage- had me thinking that he was an artist that I had been following for years.
When researching more about his history, I discovered that he was an attorney before he decided to pursue music as a career. That fact made me connect with his music even more. As an attorney myself, who spent a year between undergrad and law school dipping my toes in the music world as a singer, I found someone whose music and story I could truly, and sincerely, envy
If I recall correctly, this was also Anees’ first live show in Los Angeles. I am glad that I got to witness it….”
