Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai, celebrates his birthday on November 14
November 14 is the usual birthday of Dubai’s Crown Prince, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed. The popular prince, known informally as Fazza following his adventurous lifestyle, has turned 39 this year. On his Instagram on Nov. 14th, he celebrated his birthday with 39 amazing photos majority of which were taken during his adventurous exhibitions.
The Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan is known for his bravery and adventurous side, and has been seen skydiving, free diving, scaling the Burj Khalifa and, most recently, perched on top of the latest addition to Dubai’s ever increasing marveling landmarks, the Ain Dubai pod.
Hamdan is famed for his love for adventurous lifestyle and animals, and his forward-thinking nature and passion for the country, and has a loyal social media following and countless celebrity friends.
In May, 2021, the Crown Prince, Hamdan became a father. He welcomed twin sons Sheikh Rashid bin Hamdan and Sheikha Sheikha bint Hamdan with his wife, Sheikha Sheikha bint Saeed.
Why do we call Sheikh Hamdan ‘Fazza’?
Like his father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, The Dubai Crown Prince, Sheikh Hamdan is also a good writer. He writes poetry, which he sometimes shares online.
Now, what does his nickname Fazza mean? Answering: Fazza means “a person who speeds to the help and support of others”. From the Emirati dialect, it’s a term often used in Nabati poetry, which is a common art form in the UAE.
In his words, The Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan has described his poetry as “my identity and poetic character through which I humbly attempt to rekindle joy in the hearts of people, alleviate their suffering in my own simple way. I express their hopes and aspirations.”
In Dubai, United Arab Emirates, some of his poems have been turned into songs.
We share in his joy and spirit of his birthday celebration. Furthermore, we wish him many more affluent years ahead in royalty, and better still, we wish him all that he wishes himself.
