With over 20 years’ experience in the entertainment industry, Rami brings a wealth of industry expertise and a proven track record of success to the company. Mohsen will oversee strategy and operations in one of the fastest-growing music markets in the world.

Streaming accounted for the vast majority of the market, accounting for a 95.5% share of total revenues.

My priority is to celebrate and preserve this unique musical heritage while ushering in a fresh wave of music and creativity. With the talented team at Sony Music Middle East, our ambition is to create musical experiences that resonate not only locally, but also on a global scale.” 

Rami began his career at Nogoum FM, where he quickly rose through the ranks to become the Network Director of Nogoum FM andamp; Nogoum FMTV. In that role, he successfully managed radio programming, music production, and oversaw the operations of the leading radio station in Egypt and the Middle East.

During his tenure, Rami launched the NRP production unit which allowed in-house creation of content. The vertical integration of content production also led to the establishment of Nogoum Records, now recognized as one of the top music labels in the MENA region. 

Prior to joining Sony Music Middle East, Rami also served as the Head of Music – Middle East, North Africa andamp; South Asia Subset at Spotify. In this capacity, he was instrumental in leading Spotify’s music and content strategies, as well as elevating the company’s profile in the MENA region.
