Abubakar Baker Shariff-Farr (born 12 February 1994), better known as Bakar, is a British singer, songwriter and model. Known for his experimental indie rock style, he made his professional solo debut with the mixtape Badkid in May 2018, subsequently releasing the extended play Will You Be My Yellow? in September 2019.
Musical influences cited by Bakar include Madlib and Foals. He has described his music as “schizophrenic”, and said that he attempts to “bridge the gap” between different music genres. Ones to Watch described his style as a “melting pot of indie, rap, rock, and punk”.
Bakar has also modelled as part of Virgil Abloh’s debut runway show for Louis Vuitton In February 2019. In November 2019, he modelled for Prada’s “A Gift to Give” campaign alongside models Pixie Geldof and Sara Blomqvist.
