Reputed platform
Ahmed Al Rasbi, the talented Omani singer said, "I have struggled a great deal to receive backing for my talent in the past as producing music requires a lot of funding. I have always had the ambition to be supported by a reputed platform, but as a beginner, it was a long journey. By the grace of God, The Zubair Corporation embraced my talent and decided to support me. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation towards the institution. God willing, the youth of Oman will be empowered through my voice and be inspired to find their own ambitions."

He also added: "We believe that the role of the private sector is essential for us and I hope that many companies like The Zubair Corporation will also adopt and support young Omani talent."

The Zubair Corporation has supported a large number of citizens in the field of art, design and literature. The corporation had supported student groups to achieve their goals in the past and has also helped publish Omani writers, who through their work continue to inspire the youth.
