Rahat Fateh Ali Khan dedicates his honorary degree to another legend
Khan is among eight other individuals who received their honorary degrees at the ceremony.
“I am honoured to be accepting this degree from Oxford University, a world-famous educational institution,” said Khan.“This will be a very special day for me, my family and also my fans who have shared this honour with me. I am happy that my music has allowed me to reach such incredible heights.”
On receiving his honorary doctorate, he performed live at the Oxford town hall along with his son and brother on Thursday.
Oxford University has previously recognized the work of Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan as they named one of their prestigious music halls after the music maestro. He is the first South Asian artiste to have received such an honour.
