Sharing three photos from the meetup, the Deewana crooner wrote, “This picture is from March 19 when Adel Farooq took us to check and assess Atif Ali's studio for the first digital live concert that we eventually did on March 22.”
He further adds, “Incidentally one of the most respected singers and musicians of all times, and my personal favourite Sajjad Ali Bhai was there too with his son.”
The Bijuriya singer penned Sajjad waited till he arrived so “we may meet for the first time in our lives. And then we chatted for an hour and a half. Sharing some memorable pictures of that beautiful evening.”
Sonu revealed how one of Sajjad's songs was covered by the former's singer as well. "For people who don't know, his Katna Nai is one of my family's most favourite songs and so was covered by my exceptionally talented sister, Teesha Nigam," he continued, "But before that, I wanted to go about it absolutely respectfully and thus I called Sajjad Bhai to seek his permission for the same. It was very, very gracious of him to not just give us permission for the same but not even charge for it! That's called true graciousness."
Grateful for his kind words, the Cinderella singer thanked Sonu on social media. "It was a great pleasure meeting you too Sonu Nigam - One of the most sureela singers of our time," he shared.
