Junaid Jamshed Started Fashion Show with Receiting a Naat

Junaid Jamshed is a Pakistani recording artist, television personality, fashion designer, occasional actor, and singer-songwriter. After graduating with a degree in engineering from the UET Lahore, Jamshed briefly worked as a civilian contractor and engineer for the PAF before focusing on a musical career. He soon began performing on various local university campuses before being noticed by Rohail Hyatt in 1983. With the help of Hyatt and Nusrat Hussain, Jamshed was inducted into Vital Signs and signed a record deal with record executive and producer Shoaib Mansoor to his PTV Music Studio.

Jamshed first gained nationwide prominence and international recognition as Vital Signs’ vocalist in 1987 with the album, Vital Signs 1. The album topped the Music Channel Charts around the country. It included the number one single Dil Dil Pakistan, and Tum Mil Gaye. The commercial success of Vital Signs’ first album helped develop Pakistan’s rock music industry.

In 1994, he released his debut solo album, Junaid of Vital Signs, which also quickly became a national hit, followed by Us Rah Par in 1999 and Dil Ki Baat in 2002. In 2004, Jamshed left both his engineering and music careers and, since then, has focused on Islam and reciting nasheeds. His debut religious album, Jalwa-e-Janan was released in 2005 and was followed by Mehboob-e-Yazdaan in 2006, Badr-ud-Duja in 2008, and Badee-uz-Zaman in 2009. Jamshed also owns a clothing boutique with the name “J.” (read as “Jay Dot”), which has several outlets throughout Pakistan.

In November 2014, Jamshed was accused of blasphemy and in December 2014, in a video message, he apologized for offending people and making mistakes. Sindh Police initiated an investigation into the matter.

Early life and education

Junaid Jamshed’s father Jamshed Akbar was a Colonel in the Pakistan Air Force while his mother’s family comes from Punjab Province.

After graduating from a local boarding high school in Lahore, Jamshed joined the PAF, initially wanting to become a F-16 fighter pilot. His weak eyesight prevented this. He then entered the University of Engineering and Technology in Lahore, where he took mathematics and physics before declaring his major in mechanical engineering. In 1990, Jamshed gained a Bachelor of Science degree, graduating in mechanical engineering. With his father’s influence, he was employed by the PAF as a civilian contractor and moved on to a short-lived career in aeronautical engineering in the PAF’s science command.

In 1983, Jamshed started performing rock music on Peshawar University and Islamabad University campuses while still a student at UET in Lahore. During this time, Rohail Hyatt was in town searching for a singer for the newly formed band, Vital Signs. Bassist Shahzad Hasan and keyboardist Rohail Hyatt arrived at the campus of Peshawar University to meet Jamshed but were unable to do because of severe winter weather in Peshawar. That night, Jamshed sang “Careless Whisper”, a 1984 single by George Michael, on the university campus. They would not meet with Jamshed for a further four years. In 1987, Jamshed joined his engineering university’s rock band, Nuts and Bolt as a lead vocalist and performed at Flashman’s Hotel in Rawalpindi.

The band’s guitarist, Nusrat Hussain, and Rohail Hyatt were also there in search of new talent at the hotel. When Jamshed came to perform on stage, Nusrat tipped Hyatt saying, “that kid’s coming back; the guy you liked” and “perhaps we should go and see him.” Hussain urged Hyatt to see him and after Jamshed’s performance, they did and Jamshed joined their band.
