Bio


The Boys, Khiry, Hakim, Tajh, and Bilal a group of four youths (all brothers) brought quality entertainment, happiness, and joy to the world from 1988 – 1993. People all over the globe still remember… their hit songs like “Dial My Heart” and “Crazy”; those tight dance routines – those back flips; the video in Japan; the standing ovation performance at the Image Awards; when they dressed up like Bobby Brown, Milli Vinili, Micheal Jackson, and George Micheal, on the “Crazy” video. They even had their own TV. show called “The Boys”. The Boys collected major awards and made major contributions to the music world until 1993, when they suddenly disappeared.

What we’ve been up to!!!

It was in 1994, they decided not to record another album, but to rest, reflect, and research. The eldest member Khiry, who directed The Boys hit videos “Crazy”, and “Happy” at the age of 15, rediscovered his first love of film making, and began studying and apprenticing under some of the hottest directors in the motion picture and music video industry. Hakim, Tajh, and Bilal continued to create music – but the music they made was not for money, so it has the sound of pure creativity. They began to feel the pull towards higher consciousness, holistic and sustainable living. Eventually they realized they had to go home to Afrika. Surprisingly, in 1998, one of their friends, Olimata Taal, was organizing a group trip to The Gambia West Afrika. Through her fund raising efforts she was able to pay for them to come and perform at the “Roots Homecoming Festival”; a festival that happens every other year to celebrate the return of Afrikans from the Diaspora to the motherland. The Suns notified their parents they would be taking some musical equipment with them on the journey and said that if they could survive they would stay. With their parents support they opened an audio production studio business and they have been learning and producing new music for the past years. Their new music consciousness was considered incompatible with mainstream American music standards at the time. Thus, being faced with this reality The Suns birthed Sunland Music, an indie label dedicated to expressing the consciousness of elevated living through Love and attunement with nature. Now they’re learning their native tongues and interacting with many different cultures and people. They won’t stop here… Hopefully all The Boys’ fans will benefit from their studies and experiences. Ultimately they hope to have an uplifting, spiritually and socially beneficial influence through their various projects. Their mission to shine is evident in their New Name “The Suns”.

Why the name “The Suns”?

To begin we have to inform you of how we got the name “The Boys”. In the early eighties we were auditioning at a talent show, and the person facilitating the auditions called us up to perform. He asked our mother the name of our group, at the time we didn’t have one. So after pondering for a moment she simply said “my boys”, and then followed it up with a quick alteration of “The Boys”. From then on the world has known us as “The Boys”. Our mother gave birth to 4 children, all sons. We eventually grew, and as we grew the desire to return to our roots and to seek out ancient divine knowledge also grew. We became aware that we are not only sons of our birth mother, but also sons of the motherland Afrika (Sunland), and sons (students) of divine knowledge. Through the knowledge of self we began to perceive the Light within. Thus, they have been transformed from “Boys” to “Suns”.

Light and Love,
The Suns
