Subhas Nair is a musician, activist, philosopher, athlete, and renaissance man. He came from truly humble beginnings and worked hard, going from New Town Secondary to Hwa Chong, and then to university to study urban planning. He’s well known as a rapper but he’s also an activist who campaigns for social justice and most recently campaigned about the injustice of the death penalty. He also volunteers with children. He discusses his life, his music, his philosophy, and all the positive change he wants to bring to the world with PJ Thum and Sean Francis Han.

This episode is a collaboration with Wake Up Singapore. You can find out more about them online on their website, Facebook and Instagram.
