Amjad Sabri 10 Fast Facts, Bio, Wiki
Amjad Sabri is fondly remembered by friends and family as a warm and affable person who was always smiling, and had a love for board games and a childish tendency to play pranks. He married his wife Nadia after being introduced to her in 2002 through mutual friends.
Nadia and Sabri have five children together. Sabri was known to be a family man who preferred to spend time with his wife and children despite his hectic career and travelling commitments and felt homesick when travelling abroad.
Friends who knew him closely also considered him somewhat of an eccentric and an outspoken misfit.
Sabri preferred to live in his humble Liaqatabad residence even after achieving world fame and refused to move to a more affluent area due to his spiritual association with the home built by his father.
On 22 June 2016, after finishing a morning TV show where his last naat included the words “When I shudder in my dark tomb, dear Prophet, look after me”, two motorcyclists opened fire on Sabri’s car in Liaquatabad Town, Karachi, critically injuring Sabri, an associate and his driver.
Sabri was shot twice in the head and once on the ear. All of the passengers were then shifted to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where Sabri died shortly after. His assassination occurred near an underpass named after his father.
Tens of thousands of people attended Amjad Sabri’s funeral in Karachi. He was buried near the graves of his father Ghulam Farid Sabri and uncle Maqbool Ahmed Sabri at Paposh Qabristan, in Nazimabad.
Sabri’s murder was met with condemnation from many public figures in Pakistan and India, and several protests were organised against the killing. Several songs, music videos were made, and articles were published, to pay a tribute to Sabri.
In addition, Sabri was paid tribute in several shows and award ceremonies in Pakistan. Since Sabri’s death, several concerts have been held around the world in his tribute.
In 2016, a Qawal group held a concert in the United States in a tribute to Sabri, which was attended by thousands of people.
He was the sole torchbearer of the Sabri Brother’s ensemble, after 2011. His performances were enjoyed by audiences in Pakistan and by South Asians in UK, Australia, Canada, and the United States.
The son of Ghulam Sabri, Amjad Sabri’s legacy was not solely as the keeper of his father’s name but he was a respected Sufi singer in his own right.
Amjad was the nephew of Maqbool Ahmed Sabri of the Sabri Brothers, my favorite of the two voices that comprised the original Sabri Brothers. After the death of Maqbool and Ghulam Farid Sabri, Amjad Sabri became the head of this famous Pakistani qawwali group.
Born in the Punjab town of Kalyana, Ghulam was the son of Inayat Hussain Khan who was also a qawwal.
