Arif Lohar is the pride of Pakistan. The folk singer has worked tirelessly to warm his way into people’s hearts and for his music to make way into people’s souls. The government appreciated his efforts of promoting Pakistani folk music by awarding him with the Pride of Punjab award.
The award was given to him at an event arranged by Punjab Institute of Language Art and Culture in Lahore. A cash amount of three hundred thousand rupees was given to the dedicated singer as a further token of appreciation and support. Arif has not only worked for the Pakistani music industry but also worked in several Punjabi movies.
The kind-hearted singer thanked Punjab government for giving him the honour and hoped that his fellow singers will also benefit from this policy.
