Football icon Fandi Ahmad’s only daughter is launching a career in music.
Iman Fandi, 20, has signed with Universal Music Singapore, the label announced on Tuesday (Feb 9).
She will drop her debut single, ‘Timeframe’, on Feb 19. The track is written by her, produced by Singaporean hip-hop luminary Flightsch and mixed by multi-Grammy winner engineer John Hanes, who has worked with the likes of The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey.
“The main reason I write and release music is so that people will know they're not alone in feeling a certain way”, says Iman in a statement. “This empathy comes from a place of empowerment and determination: “I want to be better. I also want to branch out and explore territories outside of Asia. I love experimenting and trying new things and I feel that being signed to the biggest label in the world will push me to do my very best — and more.”
Iman is the only daughter of Fandi and retired South African-born model Wendy Jacobs. The couple also has Ifan, 23, Ikhsan, 21, Ilhan, 18, and Iryan 15.
Iman made her singing debut on ‘Stay Home,’ the COVID-19-inspired song that also features 13 other artistes including Yung Raja, Shigga Shay, Aisyah Aziz, and Tosh Zhang.
She is also a model, influencer and actress. She landed a role in Mediacorp's 2019 high school drama series Emerald Hill High.
To promote the single, Iman will be co-hosting with Sonia Chew and Joakim Gomez on 987FM's The Shock Circuit from Feb 22 to Feb 26, between 5-6pm.
‘Timeframe’ is now available for pre-add/save on all digital streaming platforms.
