ABRARUL-HAQ INFLUENCED BOHEMIA TO CHANGE HIS LIFE FOR THE BETTER
NEWS of popular US-based Punjabi rapper Bohemia foregoing smoking and alcohol has been making rounds for some time now. Ever wondered who the driving force behind the star’s lifestyle changes was? It is none other that musician-turned-philanthropist Abrarul Haq.
Abrar, who has been working with Bohemia in Dubai, seems to have profoundly influenced the rapper. Bohemia recently took to Facebook to reveal how meeting Abrar helped him change his life for the better.
The rapper posted a picture of the two sharing a light moment. In the caption, Bohemia revealed he had remained booze and smoke-free since meeting Abrar.
The world-famous Punjabi rapper has collaborated with many other Pak- istani singers including Sajjad Ali. He earlier told local media how his songs were influenced by the work of master Urdu poets.
“People like Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Mirza Ghalib are our icons and most of my poetry is inspired by them. For instance, in one of my songs I talk about going beyond the stars. The idea is essentially Allama Iqbal’s. But, only the learned will be able to decipher such influences,” he said.
