Ali Azmat is the most powerful pop singer from Pakistan. He belongs to Lahore and got his early education from St. Andrews School, Lahore. Since his young age, he used to sing songs just in front of his friends and teachers. His nick name is Boeing.

In 1989, they got a chance to perform in a firrst ever pop music programme on PTV, Music 89. In this programme, Vital Signs also performed who were at the top at that time due to their hit song Dil Dil Pakistan.

However when Jupiters performed YARO YEHI DOSTI HAY, they outclassed all others and this song became the most popular pop song in the history of Pakistan. Ali’s voice was wonderful and all youth became his fan. In Bettle of Bands, Jupiters beat Vital Signs and got 1st position.
