ZAINAB SHEIKH – in joy we remember in sorrow we grieve – RUSTE IN VREDE
Zainab Sheikh, joined the project right at incept and coined the FISHINABOX catch phrase “Let’s do it Yeah !”. Her positive outlook and critical assessment in polishing her characters had ensured good authenticity in her parts. Her ability to fit into any diverse role has been tried and tested.
The proof was in the pudding, Zainab voicing the part of the auditioning teen wannabee on SOLD the Album as well as the mistreated rape victim and the Pleading abandoned mother on MESSAGE IN THE SAND. Zainab was also a Lead Cover model for FISHINABOX.
As a Model with a Father from Pakistan and her Mother, (half Surinamese half Guyanese,) Zainab captured the dusky inspirational melting blend of strong vibrant Cultures, giving her a unique and captivating look that just had to be the face of the Album “Message in the Sand”. Zainab also featured as Cover Model for the Album “Pillar of Clouds” and played a leading role in the Alternative Rap Video “HANNIBAL”
Zainab passed away in the night of the 14th of November 2016 – “in liefdevolle herinnering, rust in vrede mijn zuster en vriend” (Andie Kumafaro).
She will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace
