Entertainment Report :
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina made the treatment of singer Akbar free for lifetime at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University Hospital. The singer has been suffering from various complications including diabetes and kidney disease for long time.
Singer Akbar said, “Hanif Sanket Sir has contacted the Prime Minister’s Office. He briefed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on my condition in detail. Prime Minister has listened to Sir. She allotted a cheque of Tk 2,00,000 for me and made Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University Hospital free for lifetime for treatment. I will be forever grateful to the Prime Minister and Hanif Sanket Sir.”
Akbar said the cheque and documents issued on September 9 were accepted on September 20. An appointment has been made to go to India on October 1. “I will be grateful to Dipjol Bhai and Zayed Bhai. Dipjol Bhai used to send Tk 10,000 to 20,000 when needed. He will even bear the cost of treatment in India. Inspired by Dipjol Bhai, I have planned to go to India. I hope I will get well with your prayers,” Akbar said.
After Eid, singer Akbar was admitted to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Medical College Hospital with various complications including diabetes and kidney disease. He recovered slightly from the hospital and returned home. Now the singer is staying at home.
Born in Paikgachha, Khulna, Akbar grew up in Jashore. He used to make a living by pulling a rickshaw in Jashore city. He had a habit of singing, though having no proper knowledge. The people of Jashore were fascinated by Akbar’s voice. They even called on stage shows. In 2003, Akbar sang at a programme at MM College, Jashore. One from Bagerhat was impressed by his song. That person wrote a letter about Akbar in the popular magazine show Ittayadi.
The programme authority then contacted Akbar. In that year, in Ittayadi, Akbar became popular overnight by singing Kishore Kumar’s song Ekdin pakhi ure jabe je alashe. Now Akbar lives with his family at Mirpur No 13 in the capital.
