(Atif Aslam)

Blu Blood proudly presents the internationally acclaimed sold out world tour of Atif Aslam to make his debut appearance on the shores of South Africa this February 2015.

Atif Aslam is a Pakistani and Bollywood’s most sought-after play back musician also dubbed the “King of Romance”. This sensational artist will have audiences mesmerized with chart topping hits, for one night only shows in Durban and Johannesburg.

Aslam will bring his exceptional charisma to the stage as well as his super hits from the movie soundtracks of Race, Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, Prince and many more.

Aslam made his debut appearance in Bollywood as an actor in 2011 in the movie BOL. He has recorded numerous chart topping songs and he is known for his vocal belting techniques. He was declared the most popular artist on India’s music streaming service SAAVN.

According to information posted on the star’s official website at, he never came from a family of musicians nor was he musically trained, but he used all these factors to his advantage. All he had was raw talent and the passion to be a musician. He was courageous enough to sing in his own style without giving an ear to the detractors. Many believe that his courage and passion displayed in the first album became the foundation of his success. As he rode on the success of Jalpari, he also proved that he was an electrifying performer through his concerts.

The music listeners of India are exposed to hundreds of voices and thousands of songs each year but among all those voices, Atif Aslam’s voice stood out and made a connection! The remix version of Wo Lamhey (also sung by Aslam) was even a bigger hit then the original. With just one track, he had conquered the highly competitive Indian play back singing empire. The artist soon went to India to perform several times. He was received by screaming fans and admirers that had fallen in love with the voice of a Pakistani boy.
