In a recent social media post, Chahat Fateh Ali Khan showcased his rendition of a self-composed “Patriotic” song. He emphasized his role in creating the song and showcased his singing prowess through the performance. Notably, he proudly revealed that his remarkable talent earned him a generous reward of 50,000 dollars.
Who is Chahat Fateh Ali Khan ?
Chahat Fateh Ali Khan has rapidly become a sensation on social media, but it’s crucial not to conflate his identity with the legendary Pakistani vocalists Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan or Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Born Kashif Rana in Lahore in 1966, the 56-year-old self-proclaimed singer, songwriter, and composer currently works as a minicab driver in London. While limited information exists about his family, available data suggests he’s married.
Why he is famous on Social Media ?
Chahat gained swift popularity in Pakistan’s social media landscape after his anthem for the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL8) went viral last month. Sharing videos during the lockdown, he amassed a following, even getting invited to weddings. Noteworthy tracks include “Mast Mast Sharabi,” “Tun Tuna Tun,” and “Pehli Wari Aj Ohno.”
In a recent interview, Chahat expressed gratitude for his success, with several of his recent songs proving hits. His viral hit, “Ye Jo Pyara PSL Hai,” has garnered millions of views. Interestingly, Chahat once belonged to a musical group in Punjab’s small city, Sheikhupura, and pursued education at Government College and Punjab University.
Determined to continue his singing career, Chahat aims to make his mark, despite having a net worth reportedly around Rs20-30 million. While unrelated to the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan family, his distinctive name and song parodies keep him in the limelight.
