Ahmad Haffar Personal Life/Early Life

Haffar was born in Tripoli, Lebanon, to parents Kamal and Safinaz Haffar. Originally from Lebanon, Ahmad’s parents were teachers of the French language, and English was never spoken at home. Being a self-learner, he picked up the English language at the age of four by watching Cartoon Network and action movies. By the age of 6, he was very fluent in the language.

At the age of 8, his elder brother Wassim introduced a guitar into the household and Ahmad fell in love with it. Music soon became his passion and he started playing the electric guitar and piano very well but there was a flip side, his academic grades began to suffer. “I started teaching people how they could use music as a career and earn a living, and that took my focus away from school completely. But I knew that this was the path I wanted to pursue.”

At 15, one of his students Anthony had an audition for guitar and Ahmad went along to cheer his prodigy. As he was watching the auditions, a woman named Michelle came over and asked him why he wasn’t on stage with the kids. “She was surprised to hear my story and wondered how I could be teaching someone twice my age. Keen to know more about my talent in music, she got a bunch of guys to watch me play different ‘mood’ styles that showcased my capabilities. Two of those people were [Lebanese singers] Melhem Zein and Vivian Mrad. They chose me as a guitarist for their song, but I ended up doing far more than just that, playing the piano and other instruments. This was the first real turning point of my life,” he says.

Ahmad Haffar Career Highlights

His career reached a unique height after around two years of freelancing work selling tunes for artists such as Nancy Ajram, Elissa, Vivian, Melhem, and others. But, as luck would have it, his automobile crashed over the Beirut-Tripoli bridge when he was driving with his boyhood closest friends Ahmad Dib and Mohammad Al Omar. Both he and his companion perished as a result of the accident. “We were approaching ‘kou3 el jamejem,’ which loosely translates to ‘the bend with skulls.’ Due to the highway’s quick turn following a long stretch of straights, several fatal accidents have occurred there. I was fortunate to be the only survivor.” He made it out alive, but not without breaking his hand, leg, and back.

Ahmad recovered a little after sliding into a coma for a few days, but he had to spend nearly a year in the hospital working to regain hand, leg, and back functions. “I also lost my spleen, which caused me a lot of health problems.” “During those bedridden days, I thought a lot about why I was the lone survivor, and I realized it could have something to do with doing something good in my life.” “I knew I had a wonderful voice, so I started practicing my singing and worked on voice-overs for commercials (while still in the hospital bed),” he adds.

He moved to Dubai in 2014, at the age of 19, to start a new life with a healed body and a clean mind. He was hired as a special music coordinator for a firm that creates personalized music playlists for companies including Galleries Lafayette, Carrefour, and Paris Gallery. But, hungry for more, he started working as a freelance voice-over artist.

He recalls, “It was all about making ends meet.” “During my hospital stay, I worked on honing my voice by practicing various tones. To get better employment, I performed free voice-over work for clients. But then I was signed by a major label, and the rest is history! “Almost everything changed in a second,” he adds.

Awards

His studio has already won the UAE Prestige Awards 2020 – best studio and producer in the UAE – and the UAE Prestige Awards 2021 – best studio and composer in the UAE. Best Production House in the UAE 2021 in the MENA Awards.

Dubai Expo 2020 voice

“Welcome to Expo 2020 Dubai, what will be the world’s finest spectacle,” was recorded in the voice of Ahmad Haffar. As tourists from all over the globe gather to the different pavilions of the famous Expo 2020 Dubai, they will be welcomed by a deep and husky voice that says “Welcome to Dubai Expo 2020, the world’s largest exhibition. Bringing together more nations than ever before to produce an unprecedented event in the world’s largest Expo.”

Residents may recognize the same voice in various variations of public transportation and Expo welcome videos – this is the voice behind several audiovisual promos for a number of well-known and well-liked entities such as Etisalat, Majid Al Futtaim, Dubai Metro, Emirates Airline, Dubai Opera, and more. Ahmad Haffar, 27, managing partner and co-owner of Mindloop Studios, is the guy behind the voice. Ahmad is currently known as the voice of Dubai, having completed more than 45 projects in three years.

In less than two days, a viral video of him created by DubaiLAD (a private news and media website) was able to put a face to the voice, generating over a million views.
