Anis Basim Moujahid, known professionally as Basim, is a Danish pop singer and songwriter. He was born on July 4, 1992, in Glyngøre, Denmark, to Moroccan parents.

Basim’s music career began in 2008 when he participated in the Danish X-Factor. His performances on the show were impressive, which led him to finish in fourth place. After X-Factor, he signed a recording contract and released his debut album, “Alt det jeg ville have sagt” (All I would have said), in 2008. His second album, “Befri dig selv” (Free Yourself), followed in 2009. Both albums included songs that became popular in Denmark.

Basim reached international fame when he represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014 with the song “Cliche Love Song”. He finished in 9th place, a respectable position that boosted his popularity further.

After Eurovision, Basim continued to work on his music. He released the single “Picture in a Frame” in 2014, which was a moderate success. In the following years, he released several other singles, including “Kød & Blod” (Flesh & Blood) in 2016 and “Comme Ci Comme Ca” and “Aji Aji” in 2017. His post-Eurovision career also included songwriting for other artists and appearances on various Danish TV shows.

In 2018, Basim teamed up with Benny Jamz. Their single “Tilfældigt” became a hit. The song was followed by “Tanker”, a solo project. Basim returned to the Danish X-Factor, but this time as a mentor in the ‘Groups’ category. His experience and knowledge of the music industry proved beneficial to the contestants under his guidance.

In 2021, a new hitsingle was there for Basim: “Du gør det godt”, featuring Johnson and Hedegaard. He teamed up with $HYBXI in October 2022 for the song “Bye bye”. Together with Jimilian he recorded the song “Hvem er de?”, a tribute to the national soccer team.

In 2024, Basim took part in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix again. He took the 2nd place in the contest with the song “Johnny”.
