Early life

Mohammed Aziz's nickname was Munna and his real name was Syed Mohammed Aziz-un-Nabi. He was born in Calcutta (present-day Kolkata), West Bengal, India. Being an ardent lover of music and Mohammed Rafi, he started singing from childhood. Md Aziz Has 2 younger Brothers,Anisun Nabi and Ehsan Ali. Aziz made his film debut in a Bengali language film, Jyoti. He came to Mumbai in 1984, with references from a producer's relative. His first Hindi film was Ambar (1984).[1]

Career

Md. Aziz started out his musical career as a singer in the restaurant Ghalib in Calcutta. He got a break when the music director Anu Malik got him to sing the song Mard Taangewala[2] for the movie Mard, starring Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan.

Aziz worked in the Odia film industry and sung several Odia bhajans, private albums, and Odia film songs since 1985. Some of his Odia bhajans (Lord Jagannath's Bhajans) are famous. He has performed stage shows in India and abroad, and has been nominated twice for best male playback singer award.

He was one of the rare singers who can sing at the 7th note (saatwan sur) — an example being his song, "Saare Shikawe Gile Bhulaa Ke Kaho". Laxmi-Pyare recognised his potential very early and repeated him in a lot of their movies.[3]

He did playback singing for famous actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Govinda, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Sunny Deol, Anil Kapoor and several others. In Bollywood, his duets with leading female singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Anuradha Paudwal and Kavita Krishnamurthy were immensely popular, the latter two in particular. His collaboration with the musical genius duo Laxmikant Pyarelal was most successful to the extent that he was considered an heir of Mohammed Rafi at his peak in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Aziz performed almost 2000 total songs in different Indian languages.[4]

He offered his tribute to Mohd Rafi in one of the song in Movie Krodh.

Death

Aziz died in Mumbai on 27 November 2018 of cardiac arrest, aged 64.[5]
