Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is loved and highly respected across the globe and here's proof.

The singer was recently honoured by Oxford University as the institute named a rehearsal hall after the Pakistani artist - making him the first South Asian artist to receive such an honour.

The hall called 'The Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan Music Room' has the singer in raptures and he credits his team for his success.

Rahat told Images, "I feel honoured on this auspicious occasion. It is the efforts of my management team especially Mr Salman Ahmed who has instigated this with Oxford University Music Faculty."

He adds, "It is a moment of pride for the nation and my moment of gratitude to the Almighty. I'm really humbled."

The event included a performance by RFAK which was enjoyed by all attendees.
