What better way to show your appreciation to your life hero than through an inspirational musical tribute?
While some may choose to write about love or life experiences, Pakistan-born and Reading based singer/songwriter and poet Shahzad Khan, known as SHK, has chosen a different source of inspiration – legendary Russian mixed-martial artist, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
SHK uses his lyrics to platform a message of motivation, encouraging listeners to never give up on their dreams, regardless of what life may throw their way.
One of the many reasons that Nurmagomedov is one of SHK’s personal heroes is due to his own love of martial arts, spirituality, Sufism and self-reformation, which are passions that he weaves into his music. The pop-rock track itself features addictive melodies, striking inspirational lyrics and an atmospheric chord progression that conjures a unique feeling of hope.
SHK’s adoration of Nurmagomedov is evident in the release which is an ode to his undefeated MMA status and commitment to remaining a devout Muslim throughout his career. SHK hopes to highlight the fact that you can remain true to your values and succeed in life regardless of any obstacles you may face.
“I have been really inspired by his hard-work, skills, integrity, discipline and unconquerable spirit. I think he is a great role-model for any professional, especially for Muslims”.SHK
The music video for ‘Undefeated’, which you can watch below, was released just in time for to see Nurmagomedov win his final fight that he dedicated to his late father just before retiring. SHK has created the perfect tribute to Nurmagomedov’s career, reminding the world that he will forever remain undefeated.
