Pakistani painter sings Arijit Singh’s songs in a soulful voice and Internet can’t stop obsessing over himworld Updated: Aug 07, 2018 12:45 IST
The Internet continues to be a medium for new talent to reach the masses.
Remember Madhya Pradesh professor Sanjeev Srivastava’s Govinda-style wedding dance that made the Internet swing along with him? Every household across the country now knows him as the “dancing uncle”.
The Internet is currently obsessing over Pakistani national Muhammad Arif, whose 17-minute video of Bollywood songs has won him many fans.
A painter by profession, Arif’s clip was shared by a Facebook user called Akbar Tweets on August 1. It shows Arif working while singing a number of popular Bollywood songs – including Humari Adhuri Kahaani, Channa Mereya and Phir Le Aaya Dil – in an especially soulful voice.
The video has garnered over 3.9 million views ever since it was uploaded on Facebook.
The video went viral across social media with many showering him with praises.
So I saw this on fb and decided we need to make this guy just as famous if not more than the #chaiwala. Apparently he’s from Pakistan and just listen to his voice for yourself 🙌🏽 pic.twitter.com/tGh3nYbdLq— Bayek of Siwa (@Classikhman) August 2, 2018
This is beautiful at the cloud level. His voice is so so much better than most of the singer who use autotune. He sang at the best level without any instrument and autotone. He is god himself.👍👍👍— LMAO (@mememe_Env) August 3, 2018
I’m more impressed with his work ethics. He keeps working as he sings. Bravo!— Saqib Hussain (@pakatheart) August 3, 2018

While praises came in buckets, a few expressed their doubts as well. “Clearly, he’s not singing and the vocals are being played through some other means. Please correct me if I am wrong,” a sceptical YouTube user said.
