Recently, Atif Aslam appeared in ‘AB Talks’ which is a digital talk show. There, he talked about his journey of becoming a singer, recording a song and much more.
On talking about the journey of music, Atif said:
I think I explored myself in that I did not have any sort of an outlet and was in dire need of one. I became quiet and lonely.
He added that listening to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (NFAK) changed his interest.
Moreover, he said:
About 23 years ago, my brother had introduced me to NFAK. While I felt alone and at my worst, his [Nusrat Fateh] music calmed me, brought me closer to God and when I started praying, I started getting the answers.
During that time, I explored and found my own voice. I didn’t know that this would become my career. It all started when we were shifting; the house was empty as the night sky prevailed at almost six in the evening. I started singing, my voice echoed through the four walls and upon reaching the high-notes; I was scared of my own voice.
Revealing about his first song ‘Aadat’, he shared how he recorded his song:
I recorded my first song Aadat out of my pocket money. It took me a few seconds to upload it on the internet when there was nothing like WhatsApp. People started loving it and led to the making of a music video. The rise of my career began at that moment.
