Imran Khan Punjabi Rapper

About Imran Khan:

Imran Khan(born 28 May 1984) is a Punjabi singer of Pakistani origin[1] who gained success after the release of his first single "Ni Nachleh" in 2007. His debut album Unforgettable was released on 27 July 2009.


Imran Khan, was born to Pakistani parents who moved to The Netherlands from Gujranwala in Pakistan. Imran started his career in his late teens, at the age of 19 he signed a deal with a record label. However, due to managerial and monetary issues, he decided to withdraw from the company. Khan returned from Pakistan to the Netherlands and signed with several producers and record labels. However, again due to conflicts of interest, Khan chose to not continue working with them.

In 2007, Shahid Mazhar founded Prestige Records,[3] which released Khan's UK debut smash hit single "Ni Nachleh", a hit single that quickly reached number 1 on various UK Asian radio and television channels.[1] Prestige Records also released Khan's future releases, the next one being a second single called "Chak Glass" that was released at the end of 2007 as an audio release only as no video was shot for the single.
In July 2009, Khan released a new album with his fellow producers Eren E and Hakan Ozan, entitled Unforgettable. This included the smash hit singles "Amplifier" and "Bewafa" which went on to be hugely successful in the UK and Canada amongst their Asian communities. The album was a worldwide hit record and continuous airplay of songs on the album were being played across the UK particularly on BBC Asian Network. Unforgettable gained even more success at the UK Asian Music Awards but did not manage to win the 'best album' award, however Khan won Best Desi Act.
The singer said he has already started work on his second studio album, but no release date has been mentioned expect for a release in 2012. During an interview on BBC Nihal Radio show the singer also confirmed that a single is going to be released with T-Pain.

Personal life

In 2010 the singer stated in various interviews on dream collaborations, by saying The most amazing artist in music for me is T-Pain. I would love to work with him as his music is something everybody likes and I really think I could create a smash hit club banger with this guy !, also this might shock everybody but I would love to work with Cheryl Cole, she is just great, her genre of pop music mixed with my urban bhangra sound I think that we could have a hit record, and of course she is gorgeous!. I know people wouldnt expect a Punjabi singer like myself to work with them but in music you never know what can happen !.
Imran is fluent in 4 languages which are Punjabi , Urdu, English and Dutch.
