DJ Kantik from Turkey recently got engaged in Lahore and it’s just another wave of foreigners finding their love with Pakistani people. This sudden “foreign interest” in Pakistan is weird, probably because there wasn’t much media attention shed on such a phenomenon until the recent wedding of one Maria Helena from the US to a Sialkoti guy. Another reason why this sudden obsession has become a thing is because we’re on a trajectory of promoting a “positive” image of Pakistan these days and what’s more positive than white people wanting to marry Pakistanis, right?
So about DJ Kantik, he’s a Turkish DJ who recently got engaged to a Lahori lady and shared his big news on Instagram
His actual name appears to be Ferhat Kantik and apart from his business channels on YouTube, Facebook, Soundcloud and the likes, there isn’t much known about him.

Dj Kantik also appears to be gaining a cult following in Pakistan by playing underground parties and small venues like schools and colleges
According to his professional bio, Kantik’s played in over 38 countries in many famous venues around the world. He is apparently popular with the EDM crowd, which is the genre that seems to be the most popular with Pakistanis, these days.
