An 11-year-old Palestinian boy, Abidel-Rahman Al-Shanti, living in a war-torn Gaza is preaching the message of peace and love in the most creative way possible.
The boy is using rap as his outlet to let people know what it is like for children in Gaza. According to Al Jazeera, the boy rhymes about the difficulties of growing up in Gaza.
“My message talks about peace and I want to convey it to the largest number of people and I want to show how is the life in Gaza to outside.
“I want to show them how we children (are) supposed to be like the other children from the outside, from America,” he said.
Known as MCA Abdul on Instagram with over 60,000 followers, he has fans from world artistes and DJs. He was even on airplay in Ireland.

The media also notes that he has been friends with rappers around the world, thereby growing his global fan base.
The young boy also sings cover songs as he hopes to write more of his own. He said he began rapping in 2018. He added that after he realised he could rap, he started doing constant practising.
Abidel-Rahman said he wants to keep improving on his craft so that his rap game can be better as he looks forward to writing more original lyrics.
Though his friends do not always understand his fast-paced English rap, they still give him support by featuring in his videos.
Waseem Seedi, a friend of his, said though he always asked him to sing for them, he does not understand what he is saying. He, however, commended the brilliance of his songs and how he delivers them.
“Some things will never change, some things will stay the same, but when it’s said and done, Palestine will still remain,” the 11-year-old boy rapped

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a little boy who raps along pretty well to what must be his favourite song was spotted in a video on Twiter.
Not missing a word, he accompanied his little performance with moves to match. In the background, proud cheering on can also be heard, showing the boy surely has a great support team.
Twitter users were left highly impressed by the boy's amazing skills and left hundreds of comments below the post.
