The following biography is copied from Jawid Sharif’s official website. My artistic life began when I developed a very strong connection and interest with the art of music. I was barely five years old. With God’s blessing and guidance of my mentor and dear Uncle Mr. Habib Sharif I was able to stride on the first footstep of this endless journey. At the age of six, I participated in the first radio concert.
The following year I had the honor of taking part in another concert hosted by our beloved artist Zahir Howaida. With the support and encouragement of my family, friends, and fellow artists, I was able to continue my work in this field and took part in concerts organized by the radio, television, schools, and the youth. At the age of nine, I recorded a few songs which were to be aired on television, however, due to unknown reasons, after the initial airing, did not persist. I successfully finished my studies in the field of engineering abroad, but unfortunately, due to the unlucky turn of events, like many of my Afghan brothers and sisters was forced to migrate to various countries and in my case to Germany since 1996.
