Talking about his earlier days Makhan says “Since childhood, I was fond of good music; I used to listen to and admire the late legend Nusrat Fateh Ali khan saab. My fantasy to start singing came to life as I started singing along with my favorite songs. After that I became naturally involved and Started to develop with time. I am still a beginner and am grateful to my team for giving me the chance to step into the studio and this was a learning curve as singing in the booth was much more challenging then I thought it would be.
This taught me to start learning professionally and to practice daily.” Makhan adds “With some of my Videos uploaded on YouTube of me singing some famous hits such as Dushmani. I was immediately embraced and acknowledged by listeners for my voice. I was extremely touched and was relieved that I gave my parents a chance to be proud of their only son.
Recently Makhan was interviewed by Komal and was asked about taking his singing to a commercial level Makhan stated “I sing for joy never for the sake of money. I declined a number of offers for singing in various projects and to perform on various events. This was all offered due to gaining popularity from social media but I never ever thought that I would pursue my hobby as a professional but when The Dark MC approached me & gave me advice on my talent, "I decided to take the next step".
With ref to his singing Idol from Punjabi music he mentions “I am fond of folk music as it is strongly connected with our culture. I am a big fan of Kaka Bhainiawala the Bhangra Singer who had a unique recognizable voice which appealed to thousands of Bhangra music lovers”
