We love you Najam!

NAJAM, 22, SINGER & DANCER - Australia's Got Talent Series 3

Najam is originally from Pakistan. He moved to Brisbane on a student visa to study business administration at Axiom College in 2004. He had no friends or family here.

“I am a person who does unique things.”

He works as a casual machine operator at Goodman Fielder, making margarine. “I couldn’t get a decent job.” He does 12-hour shifts at the factory.

Najam sings in five languages: Urdu (National language of Pakistan), Hindi, Punjabi (mother tongue), Arabic (he’s Muslim and recites the holy book), and English.

For his performance on Australia’ Got Talent, Najam says he practised a lot. “I was under pressure. I know you only have 90 seconds so I went clubbing every Friday and Saturday. There’s a club called Brazilian Touch in Brisbane which has a mirror wall. I’d stand in front of that mirror and dance to watch my movements. I also do a lot of singing at work, where we wear ear muffs. I like to sing Urdu and Hindi songs.”

Najam performs at open mike nights at the Manly Hotel, Valley Hotel and RG Bar – all in Brisbane. He also performed on Brisbane Square on World Aids Day and received a white t-shirt for his efforts.

Najam wants to learn guitar.

Go Go Go Najam!
