US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has unveiled her playlist of the Muslim artists she jams to from around the world and you’ll be surprised to know it features the likes of Abdullah Siddiqui and Shamoon Ismail.
This week, Omar, 38, pledged to promote Muslim artists around the world as she revealed her Spotify playlist on International Women’s day consisting of many female artists.
This was followed by another set of playlists that featured hit single Kids, by Abdullah and Shamoon. She had captioned her post, “I am jamming to the second part of my Muslim Vibes playlist as we pass final bill to send checks to people and Sensible Gun Control legislation. I hope you check out these [fire emoji] artists, who are mostly unknown to US audience and give them a boost.”
Acknowledging the appreciation, the Be Myself crooner took to his Instagram and said, “I’m on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s Spotify playlist, Surreal, brb crying profusely.”
Fans in the comment section lauded the acknowledgment and bombarded Abdullah with congratulatory messages, while fans of Shamoon also chimed in.
Earlier, when Omar had announced her initial Muslim Vibes playlist on Instagram, she mentioned Atif Aslam, British-Pakistani actor and rapper Riz Ahmed and British singer-songwriter Sami Yusuf among others in her comment section.
Previously, Bollywood actor Rohit Saraf, who has appeared in various popular films such as The Sky Is Pink, Ludo and Hichki, also shared his love for Pakistani singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist Shamoon. "Can’t stop listening to @shamoonismail‘s music."
In response the Taare crooner shared his post with emoticons of gratitude.
