One of the most successful guitarists in the Maldives has been chosen as the Ambassador for NFT Tones- the decentralized NFT Market Place for Music Arts. While Shahyd Legacy is mostly famed as the lead guitarist of Maldivian metal band Sacred Legacy, he made his entrance onto the musical platform in late 2004 with his first band ‘SYN’. After that, he took his music to a whole new level, and he formed his own band Sacred Legacy in 2006. In that year, we saw Shahyd releasing his first guitar solo album called the ‘Sacred Legacy’ in September, and the album gained recognition almost instantaneously with hard thrashing riffs and melodious solos. Shahyd began his solo career soon afterward as his melodies demanded more singular attention that had to be addressed. He has toured in Asia and Europe and gained worldwide recognition.
It was stated in Shahyd Legacy's Social Media and NFT Tone Social Media platforms yesterday that he would be working together as an Ambassador to aware new generation artists about the platform and the opportunities that come from it. He believes that NFT tone is the next big thing needed for the music industry.
