Founder and creative director Habib "Beeb" Kebbeh is the mind behind this inspirational brand. Beeb's vision for SBM is to inspire others to pursue their dreams and become successful producers, rather than just customers. "We are more than ball players, athletes and musicians". It is about creating, building, and passing on ownership to the next generation. Beeb believes that these are ways to build generational wealth and bridge the racial gap.
In November 2020, Beeb released his debut products, and it quickly outsold all its stock. Three months after launched, Black History 365 windbreakers were released, and they were also sold out. But this time, it was under 24 hours. It was at that point that he realized this brand was something special.
There are highs and lows, wins, and defeats, in business. You rejoice in victories and take lessons from defeats. While toasting the success of the BH365 Windbreaker, Beeb learned the worst possible news for any parent. In addition to losing his job due to COVID on February 18, 2021, Beeb also lost his 15-year-old son.
After the death of their child, life has changed significantly for Beeb and his family. His power to grieve during those difficult times was aided by his ability to produce content and share his story on social media. “Grieving is a never-ending process; You simply learn how to navigate through life without your loved ones”.
Currently, Beeb is refocusing on his business with fresh ideas and concepts in an effort to regain the momentum he had before the passing of his son.
