Presentation

Malik Shaheed

Malik Shaheed’s album Franglais was one of the top selling French-language hip hop albums at the time of its release. Although English is his mother tongue, Malik produced his first album in French as a tribute to his love and passion for French culture. This former Musique Plus VJ is well known for his interviews with celebrities like LMFAO, Pink, Diddy, Eminem, Akon, Sean Paul, 50 cent, Black Eyed Peas, Lenny Kravitz, Jason Derulo, Jay-Z, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Beastie Boys, Trey Songz, and many more. He has also been selected to serve on the Juno and ADISQ juries because of his vast musical knowledge. Malik won the YMCA Peace Award for his dedication to helping youth.

When he visits schools Malik Shaheed uses music as a means to reach students and transmit positive messages. He also takes this opportunity to demystify the illusions surrounding the entertainment industry. The presentation is followed by an artistic creation workshop based on themes discussed with teachers in advance to complement class materials. If a teacher does not have a particular idea in mind, Malik will suggest discussion topics in advance so students can come to the workshop prepared. Malik encourages students to try to express themselves by writing song lyrics. This workshop is also intended for students who have difficulty in school or who are not motivated.

Proposed approach and type of activities



  • Pre-brainstorm words and topics of discussion. Ahead of the workshop, teachers will receive an explanation of how to do a simple word brainstorming with their students: Workshop Day with Malik Shaheed.
  • Artistic Creation Workshop: explanation and breakdown of the structure of a song. Example: Verse, Chorus, Bridge, Melody.
  • Songwriting exercise in groups of 4–6 students. Brainstorm ideas and write song.
  • Present the song in front of the class. Every group must perform in front of their peers at the end of the class.
