Biography

Saleem Javed (real name Mohammad Saleem, ’ Javed is a nick name ’ ) is something of a national treasure, doing music from 20 years. He has been an active performer for over two decades and unlike the popsters of today, who often take shortcuts to fame, he’s cut his teeth performing night after night live on stage. Coming from a humble background, Saleem Javed, ran away from his hometown of Hyderabad to seek fame and fortune in Karachi, repeating the ritual any number of starry-eyed young men do, chasing elusive desires. But fate had something else in store for him, other than shattered dreams. Seemingly out of nothing, Saleem Javed carved a career based on a relentless work ethic and a single goal: giving it his all on stage and behind the microphone.

His transformations throughout his career have been almost Bowie-esque. From his disco king image in the eighties to his various avatars in the nineties (pop malang during the JUGNI era; desi gangsta image artist on the Piya Gee album) to his modern, carefully sculpted likeness as an ageing metrosexual,

Saleem Javed concentrates on his getup as much as he does on his music. And speaking of his music, it has seen quite a few transmutations itself. He performed the incredibly cheesy, yet addictive ode to Javed Miandad in ’86 when the latter smashed his legendary six in Sharjah (Cricket ki dunya mein sab say aagay hai woh kaun?).
