Hamadi was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia but spent most of his growing up years in boarding schools away from home. For many years, he was based in London where he pursued a career in acting, as well as online trading. Hamadi returned to Dar es Salaam in 2013 after being away for almost 15 years and became intrigued with writing about his experiences in Tanzania. The result was Dar Noir, as well as the recently released film Aisha.
Hamadi attended St Constantine's School in Arusha for the earlier part of his primary education and completed it at Kenton College in Kenya. For his GSCE secondary studies, he attended Malvern College in the UK and thereafter obtained a Law degree from Exeter University. He never practised law, but instead pursued his passion for drama at the London International School of Acting. He appeared in numerous plays, as well as a couple feature films including Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist. Always wanting to create his own work, his first piece was 'El Trabajo De Dois', a short film he wrote and directed with his mother and production manager, Mrs Rose Mwapachu.
Dar Noir is their second production and first feature film. Click here to view the trailer.
