Flawless performance and always a good vibe!
No secret I keep coming back to Nayim for my jobs!
Sent a LOT of options, and was very responsive and collaborative in the process.
Nayim's work was really good. I highly recommend
Nayim nailed this right at the first time I sent her the Instrumental!
But as the client evolved into the campaign she had to re-cut some parts, and did so brilliantly and was very professional.
Loved to do this project with her, and would definitely work again!
Very talented artist. Very detailed in the craft.
Nayim was great! Understood the direction I was going with the track and provided me with multiple options. Very professional and highly recommend.
Nayim is incredibly talented and delivered just what we were looking for!
We needed "clean" rap lyrics for an advert and she wrote the most perfect lyrics even with all the restrains I put against her.
Her vocal performance was full of character. Loved it!
We'll defintely work together.
Great raps from Nayim!
