False ME246 Ahmed Jehanzeb: The Wonder Boy Interview by Genevieve Makris It is not often that one comes across a child prodigy who is also a good performer. Young genius is usually too introverted or innocent of the way of the world to be direct about winning it. But Ahmed Jehanzeb ( www. ahmadjehanzeb. com) displays mastery, not only vocally and instrumentally, but also in the art of crowd control. “ THE WONDER BOY”, the title given by Gulf’s Khaleej Times, Ahmed Jehanzeb is the son of Capt. Safir Ahmed a renowned and active music lover whose regular musical evenings were organized entirely through his own persistent love for the art. Growing up in this environment, which most connoisseurs in the city are well aware of, stimulated Ahmed Jehanzeb who began to sing when he was only 4 years old. It was quite sure that his continual efforts and unflinching interest would one day bear its fruits, and it certainly did. He became the youngest singer to launch his 1st Album titled “ THE WONDER BOY” at the age of 8 years. It was a memorable occasion, as Government Dignitaries, Film and TV personalities were present to congratulate Ahmed Jehanzeb on this amazing achievement. Recording an album at the tender age of 8 created an event unforeseen in the history of music. Furthermore, he proved his talents on the 5th of February 1989, on his Rasm- e- Gandha Bandhi, he showed the world how important Taleem ( education) is from a good ustad ( scholar). Ahmed Jehanzeb completely changed form the day Ustad Rais Khan accepted him as his shaghird ( pupil). Sunday Times, South Africa called him the Singing Sensation from Pakistan, when he toured South Africa in 1990 and performed all over with an estimated 40 shows. SABC Radio Lotus awarded him the title Youngest Ghazal Singer, and was also named Youngest Singer/ Performer/ Musician by South African Television. Ahmed will be expanding his market into the US with his upcoming single duet with the rising American R& B star, Zahra. The song “ Together” sends a message of love and peace, though the artists are from two different parts of the world and sing in two different languages— Ahmed in Ordu and Zahra in English. The song will be released through Arusa Music Entertainment in late summer and is expected to be a hit worldwide. “ Together” is featured at the artists’ “ Best of Both Worlds” website www. zahraandahmed. com.
