Shahid Nazir belongs to Pakistani village Pattoki near to Islamabad. He moved to Britain just over a year ago with the hope of making enough money to send to his wife and four children in Pakistan and he started to work on a fish stall in Queen’s Market, Upton Park London.
On his first day at the fish stall, his boss told him to shout to customers to get their attention. He said he did not like shouting, and so made up a song to get attention of people at that stall.
His song goes to “Come on ladies, come on ladies, one pound fish,” he croons. “Very, very good one pound fish, very very cheap one pound fish.”
Shahid Nazir became very popular for this song and got so many hits on YouTube and Tweeter. He got more than 3.6 million views on YouTube and signed a record deal with Warner Music.
Shahid Nazir told that he is in Pakistan for few days and he wants to apply for visa to visit France for the song release.
He said that he never ever thought that he would get such remarkable fame and recognition.
