Mohammed Aziz (born 2 July 1954) is an Indian playback singer in the Bollywood and Bengali film industries.

Early life[edit]

His nickname is Munna and his real name is Syed Mohammed Aziz-un-Nabi. Being an ardent lover of music and Mohammed Rafi, he started singing from childhood.

Career[edit]

Aziz made his film debut in a Bengali language film, Jyoti. He came to Mumbai in 1984, with references from a producer's relative. His first Hindi film was Ambar (1984).[1]

Aziz started out his musical career as a singer in the restaurant Ghalib in Kolkata. He got a break when the music director Anu Malik got him to sing the song Mard Taangewala for the movie Mard, starring Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan. People thought it was a Shabbir Kumar's song and the song became a hit and Aziz became a popular singer, and was patronised by leading music directors including Kalyanji-Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Rahul Dev Burman, Naushad, O. P. Nayyar, Bappi Lahiri, Rajesh Roshan, Usha Khanna, Anand-Milind, Nadeem-Shravan, Jatin Lalit, Anu Malik, Anand Raj Anand and Aadesh Shrivastava.

Aziz is busy in the Oriya film industry. He has sung several Oriya bhajans, private albums, and Oriya film songs since 1985. Some of his Oriya bhajans (Lord Jagannath's Bhajans) are famous. He has performed stage shows in India and abroad, and has been nominated twice for best male playback singer award. Mohd. Aziz was very close to Laxmikant Pyarelal; After Laxmi-Pyare, his career went down and other music directors took to other singers such as Udit Narayan.

At his peak, he was considered an heir to Mohd. Rafi. He is one of the rare singers who can sing at the 7th note (saatwan sur) - example being his song, "Saare Shikawe Gile Bhulaa Ke Kaho". Laxmi-Pyare recognized his potential very early and repeated him in a lot of their movies.

He has done playback singing for famous actors such as Amitabh Bachchcan, Govinda, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun chakraborty and several others.
