New Yorker Momina Mustehsan takes South Asia by storm with ‘Afreen’

In an interview with BBC Urdu, the day Afreen was released, Mustehsan said she was nervous singing with Rahat Ali Khan, an enormously successful singer in Pakistan and India. He is the nephew of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan who composed and sang the original version of Afreen.

The New Yorker said Rahat Ali Khan encouraged her and helped her relax. “We were going on the floor to shoot the song, and that’s the first time I’m meeting Rahat as well,” she said. “I was so nervous. He was very encouraging. I didn’t expect it. Obviously he is amazing and he is a living legend.”

 Singing isn’t her only dream, however, Mustehsan told the interview. Having done a minor in business at Stony Brook University in New York, she also has a dual degree in mathematics and engineering. She has plans on going to medical school as well. A bit of a brainiac, the singer said she was, “Always student of the year. Even in College I was in the Dean’s list.”
