After Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s demise in 1997, his wife Naheed and his only child, a daughter Nida moved to Canada and never came back. Most of the world had forgotten about the two, however 20 years later, Nida came to Lahore and held a press conference.
At the press conference, Nida told media that she would be taking action against everyone who has used her father’s music without permission as she owns the rights. Rahat responded to Nida’s statements stating that he was the successor after Nusrat, which is why he doesn’t need to ask anyone for permission
In a recent interview Nida stated,
“I have decided to fight a legal war against those who are misusing his music and making profit without giving him due credit.”
