Mehdi Hassan was known for his soulful voice and is considered one of the greatest Ghazal singers of all time. Referred to as the “Shahenshah-e-Ghazal“, he passed away in 2012, leaving behind a rich legacy of music that is still celebrated today.
Chahat Fateh Ali Khan, on the other hand, is a 56-year-old minicab driver, who went viral for his hilarious, but often times cringey renditions of hit songs. He grew up loving Qawaali as a child in Sheikhupura. He rose to prominence after performing the classic Rashk-e-Qamar as well as his own composition, Tun Tunna Tun.
“Ustad” Chahat Fateh Ali Khan is certainly becoming a viral figure nowadays with people even inviting him to perform at their wedding events. However, confusing him for the late Mehdi Hasan is a cardinal sin, which just goes to show how little our current generations knows about our industry legends.
