• Can You Tell Us About Your New Single ‘Bach Ni’ ?
‘Bach Ni’ took only a few hours to be completed. I was delivering orders with uber eats and I had a loud beat playing in the car. I suddenly came up with these two words: Bach Ni. It went well with the beat. I stopped working right there and completed the whole track on my way back home.
• You Began Doing Music At A young Age; what Drew You To Music ?
I always found peace around music. I believe that every artist goes through a lot of things in his/her life. From a very young age, I have been facing such things till today. I believe I slept in peace only the nights I wrote something or created a melody in my head. When nature puts you in difficult situations, it wants you to use that force in the best way possible. I used my scars to heal myself.
• What Made You Decide To Pursue A Career In Arts & Music ?
Growing up in a strict Muslim household where singing is considered a prohibited practice, It wasn’t an easy thing to dream of. I have always found myself in love with melodies and I consider myself lucky enough to be blessed with a creative mind. I never thought I would be doing music professionally. This all started back in 2019 when I randomly started vibing with a hip/hop beat and wrote some lyrics to it. That day, I knew something I should’ve known way earlier. I was confident enough that I could write and decided at the same moment that ‘Music’ is a part of me and I can’t forcefully think otherwise.
• What Kind Of Singer Would You Classify Yourself As ?
• Who Inspired You To Make Music ? Who Are your Inspirations?
Sidhu Moosewala, Karan Aujla, Diljit Dosanjh, and a few more names come to mind who inspired me. I started listening to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sab when I was around 14. Along with that, Biggie and Tupac are some prominent names in my head. My inspirations came from diverse cultures and that’s the reason I can never be bound to a certain language or genre. Music is to demolish boundaries, not to create them
• The Music Career Seems To Be A Risky Career According To What People Believe, So What Message Do You Want To Give Out To Those People Who Can’t Convince Their Family to Get Into Music and Pursue Their Passion?
I know a lot of youngsters can relate to me. Sometimes, it’s the parents. Sometimes, it’s the financials. Now, that’s what this career asks for. It asks for extreme passion despite any of the factors affecting you mentally or financially. There are going to be a lot of sacrifices on the way. The road you’re walking seems endless at times. But you have to be the strongest among all these fears.
• How Do You React To Trollers & People, Who Fight Over The India-Pak Issues And Some People Also Drag the Music & Arts In It ?
I feel very bad when I hear such things, as I believe “Music Is To Demolish The Boundaries Not To Create Them”. The kinds of artists & people I’m exposed to there is a great experience and I really enjoyed it. The political fallout [between India and Pakistan] has not influenced our relationships, I would love to collaborate with them, Whether it be for an international platform, a Pakistani platform, or for an Indian platform. Mainstream Bollywood is a different ball game altogether,”I would love to collaborate with as many artists as I can. Music has no boundaries and no religion. It is purely based on love & peace and we should cherish those things rather than the negativity around us.
