Akhil was very interested in listening to music and singing since his early childhood days. His parents were not happy with his decision to join the music industry at first, as they wanted him to pursue a government job. As he entered college, he put all his effort into singing.
Initially, he faced many hurdles in his career and had no money to contact any professional lyricist for penning his songs. So, he planned to write the lyrics by himself and launched his first song titled “Sapne”. This song was a hit on YouTube and after that, he went on to release many albums.
His second album was Makhaul, which also did well on YouTube. His third album was a turning point in his life, and had the song called “Khaab”. It became an instant hit on YouTube breaking all records, and his fan following grew abundantly.
The video of the song was quite heart touching and it was appreciated as well. His efforts were acknowledged at the TIIFA awards the same year. The award gave him motivation to further deliver successful tracks in his career.
