London fish monger Muhammad Shahid Nazir was born in Pattoki, near Lahore in Pakistan. Nazir, aged 31, first found fame on his market stall whilst singing about his fish to try to catch the attention of passers by. He was subsequently recorded and placed on youtube where his video went viral.
Since then Nazir has appeared on the X factor where he was turned away after the first round. Currently he is signed to Warner music.
