Who is Brahim Fouradi?

Brahim is a 38-year-old music boss who Zara met when he was working on The X Factor as A&R director for Simon Cowell’s Syco label, and was known as the show’s floor manager.

He first made his success when he was in pop group Fouradi for 7 years, until he started to work as A&R manager for Sony Music Benelux.

Then after becoming head of music at X-Factor NL, he was asked by the UK to be A&R manager of Kelly Rowland’s category in the US version of The X Factor, and later worked for Simon Cowell.

 

He has since allegedly left the company and is now thought to be living in Holland. Since the cheating allegation, it looks like Brahim has deleted his Instagram.
