Minar (Singer, Composer)

With ‘Jhoom’ becoming one of the most viewed Bangladeshi music videos ever, Minar is on a roll when it comes to capturing the audience's imagination with his dreamy tunes. The “Minar Craze” is nowhere near the end as he plans to change it up a little for next year.

Plans for New Year's Eve

A lot of my cousins have arrived from abroad, and I plan to spend some time with them on the 31st. I might get around to doing a show as well.

My Biggest Achievements of 2017

I would have to say that it is the fact that I could do things my way. You see, there is a lot more to making a song than just lyrics, tune and composition. You need sound, execution and proper visual aid. This year, everything I have done, I have done them my way and this is my biggest achievement of 2017.

New Year's Resolution

In 2018, I want to bring a change in my lyrics. I will write some songs which are different than what I have been producing over the years.  Also, you might know that I am also a cartoonist. Unfortunately, I do not get as much time to draw anymore. I also resolve to draw a lot more in 2018.

Something I'd like to change about myself in 2018

I have gained a lot of weight! I would like to keep that in check and lose some weight in 2018.

A memorable moment of 2017

Look, 2017 was a very important year in the context of the music industry so the year itself is very memorable. The medium has been changing for quite a while but it has arguably reached fruition over recent years. People have been streaming songs through apps and watching them on YouTube so it is a lot easier for us to convey our music directly to the audience.

If I have to talk about a personal moment, it would definitely be during some of the live shows that I did. For example, I did a show at CGS (Chittagong Grammar School) a few days ago and every single person sang the lyrics to Ahare. I did not have to sing a single word after that. Moments like these are what I live for.

What I plan to achieve in 2018

I don't really think about achievements that much. I love doing music, and will continue to do so in my way. I have some very interesting plans, but I will not reveal them yet. Hopefully the audience will like them.
