Attaullah Khan Esakhailvi dismisses death rumours, says he is in good health
The singer turned to his official Facebook handle to dismiss the rumours of his death making rounds on the internet.
Refuting the rumours, Attaullah, 69, wrote, “Merey barey main aik baar phir galat khabrein gardish main hain. App sab ki duaoon se main bilkul theek hoon. Alhumdulliah (Once again fake news regarding me are doing rounds. With your prayers, I am in good health. Alhumdulliah).”
This is not the first time the legendary musician has dismissed rumours about his passing away.
Back in April, rumours about the alleged passing away of Attaullah went rife over social media, so much so that the Coke Studio star had to release a video to ensure everyone that he was alive and well.
At very young age he was forced to leave his home as he wanted to become a singer but his father disliked it. He pursued his passion for singing and started singing. In 1972, Attaullah was invited to perform on Radio Pakistan, Bahawalpur. That same year, he performed in a concert in Mianwali. In 1973, he performed on the television show Neelam Ghar.
Attaullah was invited by a company in Faisalabad to record folk songs in their studio, and he recorded four albums in one recording session. The albums were released at the end of 1977 and became national bestsellers.
He was born on August 19, 1951, in Isakhel, District Mianwali. The people of Mianwali love Attaullah because of his voice and are very proud of him.
