Pakistan has always been proud of Rahat Fateh Ali, he has always amazed people not only in Pakistan but all over the world with a voice that’s better than a nightingale’s!
He has always been an eye candy to the Oxford University as they have a rehearsal hall named the Rahat Fateh Ali Khan music room after him!
He was recognised as a Pakistani singer, primarily of Qawwali
and has been accredited for more than 50 albums, over one billion views online, more than 50 title tracks of television serials and over 100 film songs in both Hollywood and Bollywood.
“ To be presented with this honour is a massive achievement and I am happy that my music has allowed me to reach such incredible heights,” he added.
The cherry on the top is that He is the first ever South Asian singer to have received this honorary degree, and man is Pakistan proud?!!
