Nida Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to fight for her father’s copyrights
Although he was a qawwal, he was famous for his know-how of folk, ghazal and classical singing, etc. He earned a huge fan following across the globe. He didn’t only captivate audiences of Bollywood with his craft but also managed to wow audiences in Hollywood.
After Nusrat passed away in 1997, his wife Naheed and his only child, a daughter Nida moved to Canada and never came back. People completely forgot about the two, however, 20 years later, Nida appeared at a press conference in Lahore. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who is her cousin, has been disturbed by her return.
At the press conference, Nida clearly stated the reason for her comeback. She plans to take further action against people who have used her father’s music without permission and without crediting him.
While speaking at an interview, Nida said that she has decided to fight a legal war against people who are misusing her father’s music and earning profit out of it. She’s focusing on preserving her father’s music and spreading it to people by providing a platform to youngsters. She added that she will help them produce albums using the legendary singer’s unreleased tunes.
To conclude, Nida shared that Nusrat believed in changing music through times. “He always thought differently and I’ve passionately returned back to Pakistan to keep his name alive and promote his music. I want to tell everyone that this is just the beginning and I have a long way to go.”
