Critical acclaim of Sajjad Ali
- R. Rahman, a musician, has regarded Sajjad as the first crossover: “From classical music, he transformed into one of the brightest stars of Pakistani pop. Sajjad always hits the right note and never misses a beat, so even the most ardent purist must give him credit. This man can breathe life into a “Ghazal” while restoring the V to vigor. He is one of the few Pakistani vocalists who appears to be a complete singer. Regarding skill, I believe nobody compares to Sajjad Ali. He is too talented in whatever endeavor he undertakes.”
