Abrar-ul-Haq is one of our most distinctive vocalists whose ascent to acme is not only portentous; it has also eventuated in somewhat redefining the local music scene. Since we have many groups and soloists soliciting attention of small audience, everyone must take up a diverse identity and make their lucid mark. It is hard to say Abrar set out to become what he is today since his debut album had an assortment of songs. Nevertheless, when his "Billo Day Ghar" (BDG) broke all records of popularity, he must have had inkling which path to follow.
Before starting his career, Abrar was a teacher in The Aitchison College. He wanted to sing but his family did not allow it dismissing it as waste of time. Abrar attempted one song BDG and went to Network Television Marketing as they aired several music shows to promote new talent. Initially, he was rejected on the grounds that his style would not click with the audience. He pressed on and they aired it on Music Channel Charts, a show that enjoyed a hundred percent viewership of the Pakistani music lovers. The song entered the top ten list and, within a fortnight, climbed to numero uno to stay there for some time.
