Music What's Happenin'

Rising artist, Nafees already has a large following before his launch!

Hot the heels of his incredible YouTube success, British singer-songwriter, Nafees is ready for a grand launch! In just 3 months his free taster track “Teri Yadoon Mein” has had just over 96,000 hits on YouTube, without a video!

The promotional video teaser for his debut single “Mehmaan,” has already had fans clicking away awaiting the full video with 70,000 hits in 2 months alone. With a fervent fanbase engaging with him and waiting for the full single to be released, Nafees and his team are poised to launch an artist with a solid gameplan.

In his own words:

“Growing up, I loved music. All sorts of music, soul, classical, Indian, Qawaali, Pop…anything with soul. I never thought that I’d be creating a life for myself making music. Up until two years ago my life didn’t have a focus. I grew up in a small part of Bedfordshire and moved to Manchester 2 years ago. My lifelong passion for music gave me an opportunity, a purpose and a dream. I was encouraged by a number of people within the music industry 2 years ago and here I am today presenting my music and making it happen. Seeing my vision become a reality has been difficult but also rewarding. Having no tutor or mentor it’s been a big learning curve for me. But thankfully, the love and support of my family and fans has got me to where I am today. I’ve always used music as escapism, to help me through the good and the bad times. I hope to create music to connect with people’s emotions, and be as big of an influence in their lives as it has been for me.

Nafees co-wrote his debut track “Teri Yaadon Mein” with his close friend, Usman Ahmed. Nafees sings in English, Hindi and Punjabi. The soulful track is an instant hit and we’re sure you’ll love it!

Nafees’ last words:
“It’s time to look to the future and never to look back. My music is my story”.
