The 65 year old singer was born in Isakhel, Mianwali, Punjab. He found his love for music at a very tender age but was forbidden to sing at his house. At the age of 18 he decided to leave his parents house to pursue his career in music. The young Attaullah would record cassettes of himself and distribute him to the public.

Today, everyone in Pakistan is aware of who he is. His songs are especially popular amongst the truck drivers who drive for hours on highways listening to his melodious voice.
