TNT: If you are given a chance you would like to perform with whom?
Zabi: I have interest in music since my childhood. I must not forget to say that my greatest role model is Nasrat Parsa. May he rest in peace.
I have heard very much like music. I was discovered in 2002 at an Afghan wedding, because I have performed an Indian song there. There, some famous singers were present who have confirmed to me that have the talent for singing. Since I was traveling due to my job with many Afghan singers, and they repeatedly told me that I could sing, I started to sing. That was the reason why I started with music. Of course, I was very interested. Therefore, I went to a music teacher and practiced there with him some time. I have concerts already with large Afghan singers like Khoshal Sadozai or Ali Etemadi had. I am in the future open for it to stand on a stage with all Afghan singers and give concerts.
