We all know that boy bands are the next best thing in the music scene but did you know that one young kid is doing it all on his own just at the age of 16 years old? I don’t think you do. Well we found a young kid who has been making worldwide buzz overseas in Pakistan and India by releasing covers and receiving thousands of hits each day! Guess you could say he’s the Pakistani Justin Bieber! Meet Pakistan’s Asim Azhar!
Asim spent most of his childhood as any other kid, immersed in sports, school, and hanging with friends. Hailing from a musical family, his natural appreciation for music, poetry, and art was never anything he thought to pursue as a career. After seeing a performance at a friend’s event, which another friend had recorded, Asim began to truly understand his passion for music and the rest is, as they say, history. Growing up in a “mix n’ matched” culture as Asim would say, has helped him in creating a natural blend of western sounds with eastern influences. Inspired by Artists on both side of the hemisphere from Nustrat Fateh Ali Khan to Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, Asim’s artistic development is well beyond his 16 years.
Having won the hearts of thousands of fans in his native Pakistan, the teenaged heart throb is getting ready to set the world on fire with his first original single! Asim Azhar’s first original single worldwide and is making the top charts all over Pakistan and India! The single, titled Sunlay, will release exclusively on Urban Asian! Eager to share his talent with the world, Asim has already showcased his charisma and youthful energy through a series of YouTube cover videos to his favorite songs.
His hit “Urdu Remix” to Frank Ocean’s “Thinking Bout You” was quite popular but it was his Urdu remix to Ed Sheeran’s “The A-Team” that catapulted Asim into the limelight over night. Even Ed Sheeran tweeted him! Asim’s videos are regularly played on TV with a rapidly growing fan base, already at 35000 plus fans on Facebook! Asim Azhar may only be 16, but he’s prepared to take the world by storm. He has won the hearts of thousands in his native Pakistan, and now he is ready to showcase his talents to the rest of the world, are you ready for Sunlay?
