It is correctly said that, ‘The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it’ and we do believe it too. The famous Pakistani vocalist and composer, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has been a pivotal character in giving both the nations some unforgettable melodies.

Arjan Dhillon released his album ‘Awara’ and a song from it named ‘Shama Paiya’ is a heartfelt tribute from Arjan to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. And for your knowledge it is not just a random tribute but the artist has remade the song which was sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan back in his career days. 

Shaman Paiyan too was a track from Nusrat’s album ‘Tanhai’ which had a total of 13 songs and is similar to that of Arjan’s new one from his album. However, it is just the titular lines which have been taken into the song of Arjan, other antras are different and are his self-composed. 

The composition and the initial lines of both the songs are the same and why not, Arjan has released it as a tribute to the artist by lenting his voice to the legendary artist’s previous song while the music was given by Yeah Proof. He shared this interesting news by sharing a post of the track and captioning it as ‘Tribute To Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Saab’. Not only Arjan but Sonu Kakkar had also released this song as a tribute to the late legendary artist.

Shaman Paiyan was even later sung by Nusrat’s nephew and the famous Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan who is popularly known for his songs like Afreen Afreen, Sanu Ik Pal Chain and many more. Meanwhile, Arjan Dhillon has won people’s hearts with the amazing album he released for the listeners.
