Pakistan Fish-Seller In London Singing And Selling Fish
A 31-year old Pakistani Fish seller Muhammad Shahid Nazir at a London market seems like an unlikely pop star. But at the moment he starts to sing his One Pound Fish song, he is suddenly, sorroundd by sea of fans. The song goes, Come On Ladies, Come On Ladies, have a look, have a look, one pound fish, very very good, very very cheap, one pound fish. The One Pound Fish song by Pakistani fish seller has led him to sign a record deal with Wamer Music, the Sun reported. Nazir was spotted after a You Tube video of him singing at the Queen's Market, Upton Park, got more than 3.6 millin views. British Star Alesha Dixon and US boy Band Mindless Behaviour have both recorded versions of the song. Nazir said atention is not unusual. " People have come from Australia, the USA, Canada and all over Europe. They do not come here to work or shop, they come here for One Pound Fish Man," he told the daily. Shahis moved to Britain just over one year ago with the hope to making enough money to send to his wife andfour children in Pakistan. On his first day at fish stall, his boss told him to shout to customers to get their attention. He said he did not like shouting, so made up a song.
