Rahat Fateh Ali Khan first Pakistani singer to have 5m Youtube subscribers
Music maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has become the first singer to achieve five million Youtube subscribers.
Sharing a video on Instagram, Rahat said: “Thank you to all my fans for making five million subscribers possible. I want to celebrate this moment with you all. Thank you everyone for all the love and support,” he penned few lines to extend thankfulness.
Fostered musically by his uncle, legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, from the tender age of seven, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is a modern torch-bearer of the genre of Qawwali. Having established the delicate balance of rich musical heritage and contemporary popular music, Rahat has honed and developed a distinctive sound for himself.
Having proved his inborn talent time and again in Hollywood, Bollywood and his sold-out shows across the world, he has so far contributed to countless projects and recorded hundreds of tracks in a multitude of genres.
Chosen by Ustad Nusrat as his heir, Khan Sahab took the helm of his family’s qawwali legacy and has since then gone on to sing thousands of songs, at home and abroad. His musical repertoire has expanded to include contemporary styles of music. But, always, he aims to share the gift that music has given him with the world.
