Fame Holiday (CA)


Award winning rapper Fame Holiday has been establishing himself in the Canadian music scene since his first talent show at 14. He represents the Other Side of Toronto (O.S.O.T) – a collective that embodies those living outside of the Big Smoke.

Fame often weaves stories and messages from his upbringing into his signature sounding hooks and melodies. He’s been influenced by the sounds he grew up with from musical icons such as 50 Cent, Nipsey Hussle, Big Sean and Chris Brown.

Fame had his breakout year in 2018 when he released his popular single “Saucy” and acclaimed Made For This EP. This kicked off several sold-out performances at iconic venues such as Phoenix Concert Theatre and Lee’s Palace in Toronto, and Theatre Plaza in Montreal.

Fame’s consistency and work ethic over the years has earned him a loyal fan-following that has streamed his music over one million times. This close relationship with his audience caught the attention of multi-platinum artist Rich Homie Quan, who invited Fame to open for his 2019 concert in Toronto.

In 2020 Fame had his first viral moment with the release of “My Thang.” The hit single and video garnered over 500,000 streams on Spotify alone and was featured on Editor playlists such as Hip Hop Central, Northern Bars, Hip Hop Favorites, New In Hip Hop, Fresh Finds Hip Hop and New Music Friday Canada.

2021 continued to be a fruitful year for the budding star. In February, he released the music video for “Take Me Away” in wake of mounting tensions between police and people of color everywhere. Coveted press outlets including Complex Canada, CBC and Toronto Caribbean News prominently featured the charged visual on their platforms. Buzzing radio stations such as G98.7 FM, CBC Music’s The Block and FLOW 93.5 FM also added the anthem to their regular rotation.

In September 2021, “Take Me Away” won the award for Mississauga Music Video of the Year. This victory put Fame onto the radar of MANIFESTO 15, who invited him to perform at their 15th annual concert alongside headliner JID in the heart of Toronto.

Building on these successes, Fame released his third LP ShowTime in November 2021. Less than a year later in September 2022, ShowTime won the Album of the Year award from the City of Mississauga, further solidifying Fame’s place as one of the city’s top musical artists. Only a month earlier in August, Fame released his fourth album Strictly For Summer featuring the fan-hit “Kissing In my Ride.”

Fame’s charisma continues to captivate audiences and his peers alike, such as Davido and DVSN, who invited him to open for their concert at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto in August 2022. He later traveled to New York City to open for A Boogie wit da Hoodie in November 2022.

In addition to supporting buzzworthy artists, Fame partnered with the City of Mississauga to host his first festival, Fame Fest, at the city’s infamous Celebration Square in July 2022. He later took this festival to neighbouring boroughs in Toronto and Brampton, with more dates being confirmed across Canada for 2023.

With no intention of slowing down, Fame Holiday is hard at work on the follow-up to Strictly For Summer with more performances and music releases to come steadily throughout 2023 and beyond.
