PostSubject: About - Atif Aslam   Fri Dec 19, 2008 9:05 pm

Atif Aslam (Urdu: عاطف اسلم, born March 12, 1983) is a Pakistani pop singer. He was born in Wazirabad and educated in Lahore and Rawalpindi. He is well-known in the subcontinent and with ex-pats for Pakistani song's Aadat, Woh Lamhe, and Meri Kahani, and Bollywood hit's Doorie, Pehli Nazar Mein and Tere Bin. He is the former lead singer of Jal.

Music career

One day he was singing to his guy friends at the college canteen. His friends urged him to participate in the singing competition on Independence Day celebrations at PAF College Lahore and Sargodha in 1998. He performed there and won the competition.

His hobby of singing continued with him entering the singing competition of his college. There were a total of 3 participants. The media team entered Atif's name in the competition at the eleventh hour. He won the competition by singing the hit number Duur of Strings. He kept on winning these competitions every semester until he announced that he will no longer participate in them so that someone else can also win the competition.

He met Goher, a guitarist and future Jal bandmate, at his college. Together they practised and started doing mini-concerts for their friends whether they wanted to hear them play or not. Atif used to perform Junoon and Strings songs at these concerts. They started performing in their college, McDonalds, Uncle Bubba's Rabba Dabba and other restaurants. Thus began the original line up of Jal.

Jal recorded the song Aadat at Mekal Hassan's Studio. The song became popular on different musical websites in Pakistan. The song was also being on aired on major Radio channels of Pakistan like City FM 89, FM 100, Mast FM 103, FM 105 etc. The video for this song was released on Ary The Music and then it was played on almost all the channels.


After the release of the song "Aadat" by Jal, there were disputes within the band about Atif's brother being the band's manager. At this point Atif broke off from the band to do his own solo album. His solo album was released a few weeks before the release of the new Jal's (Goher Mumtaz, Farhan Saeed, Shazi) "Aadat". As both Jal's "Aadat", and Atif’s album, Jalpari, shared certain tracks (such as "Aadat", "Wo Lamhey", "Rangon Mein" and "Dil Harey"), an unofficial war over rights began between both the groups. Goher Mumtaz sued Atif Aslam for using the name "Jal" in his album title cunningly (Jal pari, meaning mermaid). As the copyright law in Pakistan is quite ambiguous (people can change the name of the content and use the content labelling it as their own property), Jal could not sue Atif for the disputed songs on their albums. Atif Aslam faced a two year ban on singing in Pakistan as a result of the lawsuit.

The hype this feud gave to both Atif and the new Jal was extraordinary and split music fans with the fans of each side backing their respective favourite. On the other hand, a few years back a video on youtube was released with Atif Aslam giving a message to Goher Mumtaz to leave the differences behind and move on with his career and stop blaming each other fovoices.

Solo Career

Atif released his first album Jal Pari on 18th July 2004 by Sound Master and IC records. Its promoters declared it to be the best selling album of the year within just 5 months of the release.[citation needed]. In the meantime Atif also cleared his Bachelors in Computer Science (hons) from University of Central Punjab. On 14th April 2007 Atif Aslam performed in Royal Albert Hall. His second album, Doorie was released on 22nd December 2006.

On 8th January, Aslam released his third album, Meri Kahani.

On 17th July 2008 Atif Aslam was the second singer to perform in Colosseum in Rome, Italy after the peace concert held on 12 May 2002.
