Without much doubts, Atif Aslam has remained the biggest music sensation of Pakistan for the last more than a decade. The popstar, who started it off with his band called Jal, took no time to go on a solo journey and released his debut album Jal Pari in 2004, exactly the same year when Jal released Aadat. The singer is now most followed Pakistani artist on Facebook and Instagram and only behind Ali Zafar on Twitter.
Atif Aslam official Facebook page has recently crossed 20M followers. The artists behind him are Rahat Fateh Ali Khan with 7M, Ali Zafar with 5.4M, Hamza Ali Abbasi with 3.9M, Mahira Khan with 3M, Fawad Khan with 1.8M, Fahad Mustafa with 1.1M, Mawra Hocane with 1M and Urwa Hocane with 0.5M likes on their Facebook pages.
On Instagram, Atif Aslam is the only Pakistani account with more than 2.3M followers. Behind him are Mawra Hocane with 1.8M, Ali Zafar with 1.4M, Mahira Khan with 1.4M, Urwa Hocane 1.3M, Aiman Khan with 1.3M and Fawad Afzal Khan 1.1M followers on Instagram.
The popstar is not much active on Twitter which is probably the reason that he is at number two there. Singer and actor Ali Zafar is leading with 969.4K followers on Twitter while Atif Aslam is just behind him with 738.7K followers. Other celebrities in the race are Veena Malik Khan with 506.8K, Fawad Afzal Khan with 264.1K, Mahira Khan with 249.8K, Mawra Hocane with 214.5K, Humaima Malik with 141.2K and Urwa Hocane with 140.9K followers on Twitter.
