Early life and Family

Junaid Jamshed is the son of Group Captain (retd) Jamshed Akber Khan and Nafeesa Akber Khan. His father was a Pakistan Air Force officer. He belongs to a Pashtun and Urdu-speaking family. Junaid Jamshed studied pre-engineering courses in PAF College in Karachi before joining University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. Though, he applied to join Pakistan Air Force but later moved on to a career in Aeronautical Engineering due to his weak eye sight.

Vital Signs

Though the Vital Signs were launched in early 1986 in Rawalpindi by Rohail Hyatt and Shahzad Hasan (Shahi), it was a while later when Junaid, then a young aeronautical engineering student from Lahore, joined them as their lead singer. Though their hit debut single "Dil Dil Pakistan" skyrocketed them into fame, the song's success was not seen by him as something that would turn him into a professional musician. Junaid who wanted to become a professional engineer, initially didn't want to have anything to do with music other than just treating it as a hobby.

However, Rohail and Shahzad soon managed to convince him otherwise. In 2003, BBC World Service conducted an international poll to choose ten most famous songs of all time. Around 7000 songs were selected from all over the world. According to BBC, people from 155 countries/islands voted Dil Dil Pakistan was third in top 10 songs.

Devotion to Islam

In around 2004 Junaid Jamshed renounced music and devoted his life to Islam. Junaid is now an active member of the Islamic preaching organization Tablighi Jamaat
