Other musicians that collaborated in this song are Bradley D’Souza on Bass guitar and Rakae Jamil on sitar. Commenting on becoming a musician and his experience at the Ufone Uth Records 2.0 platform Rahim said: “It was quite difficult for me personally to choose a musical career as it is not easily accepted amongst my family. But with my determination to follow my dreams, I am committed to making unforgettable original music for everyone to enjoy. I am confident that with the help of Ufone Uth Records 2.0 team and guest musicians like Rakae and Bradley our country’s true colours and potential will be brought to light.” With this episode the journey of Uth Records season 2 comes to an end.
