THANKS to the X Factor and James Arthur, Muhammad Shahid Nazir’s One Pound Fish song has less chance of being the Christmas No.1 hit than Tony Blair has of finding his soul.
And the chances of Nazir singing his song live on 1000 Great Xmas Hits recedes by the day as the UK Border Agency notes that there’s something fishier about Nazi than just his tonsils.
WILL Muhammad Shahid Nazir, 31, aka £1 Fish Man, deliver the Christmas Number 1? His The £1 Fish Song is in all good and bad record shops on 9 December.
Nazir, who sings his song at Queen’s Market, Upton Park, London, has signed a deal with Warners.
The B-side does not feature a Turkey Song, which is disappointing…
SO. Goodbye Muhammad Nazir, the Pakistani who stood in Queen’s Market, East London, to belt out his One Pound Fish song. He’s been deported because his student visa had expired- much like the college of his study.
When the Home Office heard the song (it peaked at 29 in the hit parade and scored him an appearance on the X Factor) they investigated.
