Oxford University will be awarding 8 people with honourary degrees this year and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is one of them!

During their annual ceremony, known as Encaenia, the singer will receive this honour by the university in London. The university introduces Khan as a "Pakistani singer, primarily of Qawwali, a devotional music of the Muslim Sufis."

"Born into a family whose name has become synonymous with South Asian musical tradition, he began formal training at the age of seven and has since released more than fifty albums, performed in numerous high-profile concerts across the world, and amassed a global following, achieving over one billion views online."

They add, "He has sung more than fifty title tracks of television serials and over one hundred film songs in both Hollywood and Bollywood."

Previously, Khan also had a rehearsal hall named after him last year. Looks like the honours just keep pouring in for RFAK!

The ceremony will take place on June 26.

Congratulations... An honor well deserved. But in future please keep paying your taxes. That was minor blot on your otherwise great career.
