Talking about this achievement, Atif Aslam said:
It’s a very vibrant city, this is the only city I think I really enjoy myself walking on the streets in. I have played for 150,000 people here, so it has a lot of good will. We, South Asians, especially Pakistanis and Indians – we’re everywhere, but this is one place where we are a lot. So I really love the fact that my music is heard over here.
Atif feels blessed to be among those people who are honored with this award!
When asked about what he’ll do when he finally sees the tribute, he said:
I’ll just stand there and say ‘yes!’
It’s like the Hollywood Walk Of Fame so it’s quite a big deal. I have been chosen among a lot of people around the world and I’m blessed to be among these people. It means a lot.
Music has always connected people and has crossed cultures. I started in Pakistan, went to India and have now gone global.
