Zuhaib mentions that his upcoming song ‘O Re Pita’ is very close to his heart as he lost his father four years ago. He was 17-years-old when his father passed away. With a heavy heart, he recalled, “He passed away just a month before I had to appear for my class 10th board exams. It was very hard for us. We were not prepared for this loss. I miss him every single day.”
Talking about his aspirations, the talented singer, lyricist and music composer says, “I don’t have very big dreams. I just want every common man to hum my songs at every nook and corner of the streets. That is why I pay close attention to my lyrics and composition so that it touches the heart of a common man. My father wanted me to be a good singer and I am working towards it.”
Zuhaib’s first project was ‘Chehra Salona’ that came out this year on the occasion of Mother’s Day. Apart from ‘Chehra Salona’ and ‘O Re Pita’, Zuhaib has collaborated with singer Anurag Maurya for many exciting projects that will release in the coming months. The details are yet to be revealed.
When we asked about his inspiration, Zuhaib said, “I find inspiration in every man who has achieved his dreams with honesty and hard work, be it any independent or Bollywood artist. We can learn from experiences of different people.”
“Lyricist Manoj Muntashir is also from Amethi. He has struggled and made a name for himself in Bollywood. His struggle and achievements inspire me to work better. But there are many more names who have inspired me in one or the other way. I wish to become a successful artist but at the same time, I want to stay humble. I wish to never work against my principles,” he further added.
