KARACHI: Abdullah Siddiqui, in recent years, has left a rather staunch impression of himself on the music industry. His works have been lauded by a number of music gurus, some of whom have even collaborated with him. He quickly rose to fame after Meesha Shafi collaborated with the young musician for ‘Magenta Cyan’. Soon afterward, he did a duet with Aima Baig for ‘Be Myself’, a song that promotes accepting one’s most authentic form. However, what has made headlines today is Abdullah Siddiqui making it to Forbes 30 Under 30 List.

In his message of gratitude, Abdullah Siddiqui wrote in a caption on his Instagram post, “Forbes 30 Under 30. I’m completely stunned and so incredibly grateful. To everyone who helped me get here, thank you.”

Several artists, including Meesha Shafi, Abdullah Qureshi, Ayesha Omar, and Natasha Baig were quick to send their congratulatory messages to the 20-year-old. “Could’ve been on ‘20 under 20’ but they slow,” write Shafi. While Ushna Shah wrote, “I wanna say I called it but like.. everyone called it.”
