Wahab recently just took to the streets of London in an effort to show the world a glimpse of a more lively side of Pakistan. And it is GLORIOUS.

Wahab performed on the streets of Camden Town, an area of London known for its rich culture, art, music, and street performers.

His main incentive for his performance was to make heads turn and convert people into loving Pakistan. He wanted to show the world that Pakistan is not a nation of terror but in fact, a nation of peace that has a beautiful and rich culture.

Wahab stated, “After the performance, people gathered we exchanged hugs, and conversations about Pakistani dance, how beautiful Islam is, and the message of Sufi saints.”

Initially, newspapers and TV channels thought this was Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Jr., the grandson of former Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and the son of Murtaza Bhutto who is an artist settled in the United States

And Wahab had to clarify that it was he, instead, who had performed on the streets of London.

It’s refreshing to see how Wahab has spread the message of positivity through his beautiful dance performance.
