Rahim Shah


Rahim Shah is one of the most popular and well known young singer from Pakistan. He is quite popular among the youth for his various Pashto pop songs hits. Rahim Shah was born in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. His date of birth or birthday is December 12, 1975.

Rahim Shah started his career in 1990 as a solo singer with a lot of hits to his credit from the day he started his career including “Ghum” that broke the records of popularity. “Ghum” is not Rahim Shah’s personal composition. It is an Afghani folk song or tappa, sung by an anonymous singer. Later famous Pushto singer, Haroon Bacha, also sung it, but the credit goes to Rahim Shah who translated the “tappa” into urdu and gave it his own arrangement.
In a short span of time Rahim has proven his singing talent beyond all questions. He sang “Ghum” under the supervision of “Salman Alvi”. He recorded his album and tried to work hard on making it different from what others are churning out. The song turned out to be a huge hit and whosever listened to that song appreciated the touch. Rahim Shah was bitter over the recent plagiarism of his song by Indian singer Altaf Raja. He copied Rahim’s song “Ghum” and gained popularity on satellite channels.

Interestingly, Rahim Shah is not his real name. He has adopted this name, for the love of his brother, who has supported him a lot in his singing. He recently disclosed his original name on Qtv, which is Muhammad Khan.
