And when you combine all of these in an unforgettable mix of musical talent, the only name that comes to mind is Atif Aslam.

One of the most talented singers to come out of Pakistan, Aslam returns to South Africa due to popular demand to perform in a series of concerts.

The Johannesburg-leg of his tour will see the ‘Prince of Bollywood’ mesmerise audiences with his exceptional charisma and charm in the Centre Court at Emperors Palace on July 22.

Atif Aslam – Live in Concert is presented by leading event management company Blu Blood which is known for bringing the best in world-class Bollywood entertainment to African stages.

“Ever since his debut performance in South Africa in 2015 and again in 2016 where he shared the stage for the first time on African soil with Sonu Nigam, fans have continued to request his return to SA.

“We are expecting another sell-out performance,” said Blu Blood’s managing director, Osman Osman.

Aslam has set unprecedented examples in the music industry.

He has successfully bridged the cultural gap between Pakistan and India contributing his talents to a number of hit songs in Bollywood.

Fans can expect some of his most popular numbers including Who Lamhey, Tu Jaane Na and the most recent hit O Saathi from the latest Bollywood blockbuster, Bhaagi 2.

This song has become immensely popular since the release of the film with the music video receiving over 46 million views since being posted in March.

Aslam’s music is the kind of music that comes directly from the heart.

His music ranges from romantic to crestfallen numbers, from peppy and catchy tunes to sober thoughtful songs.

He has recorded to date around 116 songs.

Osman said, “Aslam’s energy on stage, his vocals and his ability to work the crowd, have made him one of the most sought-after performers around the world.
