Vedad Mešanović (born September 27, 1991)
also known by his stage name Paparazzi,
is a Bosnian rapper, composition producer
and professional poetry writer. He was born
in capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina,
Sarajevo. In his early age he showed interest
in writing poetry and long-term music listening.
He is youngest child in family with
four sisters, mother and father;
Vedad was constantly supported
in following his dreams. After he
finished elementary school Saburina,
Vedad decided to finish Druga gimnazija
Sarajevo and IBO World Colledge Programme
and after that he just kept following his ambitions:
Few years ago Vedad founded a music group
"SPA Kolektiv" with his friends. They
recorded few songs and because of
low cooperation, group has split apart.
Vedad successfully finshed IB
Diplomma Programme (www.ibo.org) after that.
In 2010, Vedad was invited and attended
audition in England for MKVibe Records
(www.mkvibe.com) where they offered him
developing deal which would lead into
3 years recording contract which he
refused because of low quality terms.
Vedad is also founder of P&S Records
music label and official chairman
of NGO "CSR +".
After years of hard work, Vedad is
currently studying Diplomacy at the
University of Political sciences and
he is member of Hip Hop group "MouseMiles".
They are signed to Mascom Records,
exclusive partner of Warner Music Group.
"MouseMiles" is a rap group from Sarajevo
founded by its two members, Vedad “Paparazzi”
Mešanović and Jasmin “BIGGA” Alić. We are
only rap group performing in English language
from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. For our
work we have received positive reviews from some international performers
whose names are linked to record labels
such as Universal Music. Our work is
notable for its use of high-quality
and rare "word-play".
Until now, we performed in several cities
in Bosnia, working closely with the U.S.
Embassy in Sarajevo, and among the
many projects we recorded the song
"Let's Play", which was recorded as a
candidate for the soundtrack list
of famous video game "NBA 2K13"
produced by famous American rapper Jay-Z."
My dream is to be able to use my future
expertise to foster development of my society.
My topics of interest are arts, business and
management. In addition I write professional
poetry, produce instrumentals, record hip hop
music, act and volunteer in community.
My friends say that I have a great sense
of humor. If I could describe myself in
three words, those would be: responsible,
funny and creative. I like to travel
through South East Europe as I truly
enjoy nature and cultural heritage of
this region. I live alone in this beautiful
capital city, but I am not alone in
reaching my goals. I am supported
by my single mother and my sisters.
I strive to become an individual
who is able to be responsible not
only for its own wellbeing but for
the wellbeing of our society as well.
