Ali Zafar is a celebrated artist with so many super hits songs to his credit. Not only a champ at music, but Ali has also made it into the acting world starring in ‘Teefa in Trouble’ opposite the gorgeous Maya Ali.

Being part of the Pakistani music industry for so long, Ali understands the hardships young artists face while trying to kick-start a career in music. The artist wishes to make an effort in nurturing and grooming fresh talent in the field and has thus launched ‘Lightingale Records’.

He promised to launch at least 10 artists this year through this record house, which is quite a target. Needless to say, this is a great opportunity for upcoming artists and musicians in the making to train from one of the best artists the country has.

In an interview with the singer, he revealed that he has worked with a few upcoming names such as Yashal Shahid and Urooj Fatima, and his collaboration with them had positive results for these artists in the making, in the form of greater views. This is something that encouraged him to support and groom struggling artists.

Ali Zafar believes that no one is a star unless he/she shines for others, and we couldn’t agree more! He added:

As artists or human beings in general, we are intrinsically prone to become self-indulgent or internally focused, but that is the mistake that most of us make – to think that we are it and here forever. I feel the only thing that carries on beyond our existence, is the honesty in our work and the sincerity of our intentions. An artist leaves a legacy, and surely that should not just be about him or her. In an era where we are bombarded with tools that bring out the vanity in us, I think it’s important to see the beauty and talent in others and help them achieve their goals and dreams also. Become a part of their struggle and journey and help them in any way you can.

Hoping this venture proves fruitful and Pakistan can add singers just like Ali to its already flourishing pool of singers and musicians. All the very best to Ali Zafar and his entire team!
