He Ran Away from the school in class four and never returned.At the age of 13 Sheikh Muhammad Sadiq Chose to pen words over learning what other has written.Tht young lahori boy is today a famous Lyricist not only in pakistan and india but the world over."I have always follod my heart because you will be good only @what you are ment to do".he shares, in india on as invite from Hans Raj Hans, he vizited to Gurukul, Manimajra, to the indean music scene.After his cloth factory shut down,Sadiq took to writting full-time and now also has a recording company named SM GOLD in lahore.
Sadiq's song has been sung by the likes of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Ata ullah Essa khailvi, Shabnam Majeed and almost all singers,in india Sonu Nigham and many more,even in Punjabi Singers like Sardool Sikandar,Malikit Singh,Kamal Heer and Durga Rangeela have sung many of my kalaams,which have been sung hits,"He Smiles,The hit numbers includings Dooriyaan ni dooriyaan, MAin nu yaar di namaaz perh lain de, Dil cheez hai kia jana, Acha silla diya and akhiyaan nu chain na aave. Sadiq has written 6 books and more than 35,000 Songs in Urdu,Hindi And Punjabi.and he writes atleast 100 songs daily."I Write about whaever strikes me at the moment". But unlike todayspoetry no two poems of mine will be simillar."So has he never experiance a writter's block? Never"".its a girft tat i am able to express myself.
if with the fresh expression every single time.Shaiyari is all ablouyt khayaal.".With that one direction in mind the lyricist has written on every human theme."However, Hijar is my favourite theme.partly owing to certain personal experiences plus the fact that sadness registers in the human psyche while joy is timely".
A simple,humble and straightforword man, Sadiq's poetry is a reflectionn of himself.The simplicity of language, inescapable, realities and universal emotions mark his writtings.Sadiq strongly feels that India and Pakistan should commit to peace."Artist strengthen the bond.Its amazing to see the watmth people on both sides exhibit".he Sings Off.
