The mastermind behind such brutally honest and soul crushing tunes like ‘Eye To Eye’ and ‘Angel’, Taher Shah is a musical entity like no other. Even the great Yanni bends a knee at the altar of the Taher! His mercurial single, ‘Eye To Eye’ made him an overnight sensation (don’t ask us why) with actors like Ranveer Singh and even Varun Dhawan copying his iconic style.
However, the Pakistani singer has apparently left the country after receiving death threats. According to his agent, he has been receiving these threats for a while now. He issued a statement, “Pakistan’s famous singer Taher Shah, who is known for spreading love through his music, had been receiving life threats for quite some time.” Seems like this isn’t a prank because it was confirmed by his manager. “Even I don’t know where he has gone to but he has left Pakistan for sure,” he said.
So why did this once-in-a-lifetime singer receive death threats? Well, he recently made his film debut with Pakistan’s first online movie, which didn’t go down too well with the audience. The statement further included that Shah was heartbroken when the government failed to provide security for him and so he decided to leave Pakistan. Looks like he will have to find a new ‘haven’ to spread his angelic messages, but this time it will be heart to heart.
