“Pretty average guy, pretty average IQ but loads of melodious tunes!” is how Hassan Hayat Khan likes to describe himself on his facebook page! Well, he’s anything but average. Recently, he released a mashup hash-tagged #EnnaSona, which is a compilation of Indian singer Arijit Singh’s three most popular songs: Enna Sonna, Channa Mereya and Raabta. It took the internet by storm, garnering more than a million views on YouTube and Facebook.
Hassan is not only a talented singer, he is also a gifted music producer. He made his music debut with a song titled, ‘Beqadraa’ which won great love and appreciation. He also has a few drama OST’s to his credit. Hassan’s rendition of legendary Mehdi Hassan’s classic song, ‘Jab Koi Pyar Se Bulaye Ga’, for ARY’s 2015 drama serial Mumkin is one that will forever be a favourite!
“I had been away from music for the past 2 years of my life. When I decided in 2018 to return, I just had to sing a few of the songs which had kept my passion alive during the past year! This ‘cover’ is the result of that. The originals of each song have been nothing short of masterpieces & that is why I felt to sing them when I needed a mood-lift!” he shared with his fans!
Hassan is well known in the entertainment industry and shares a great equation with other celebrities. Apart from being a musician, he is also the Managing Director of the Raspberry Group. Ushna Shah, Sadia Ghaffar, Sana Javed, Sajal Aly and Saboor Aly are just a few names he’s been mentoring and encouraging.
“I absolutely cannot believe the love you all have shown! THANK YOU so very much for the comments, the messages, the wishes & most importantly your vital feedback ?? I could NOT have dreamt for a better welcome!” he thanked his fans for the feedback his mashup received.
