Rabi started his musical journey in December 2012 with his first single titled Bundeya. He appeared in Nescafe Basement Season 1 the same year, where he played Awara with his band member Adnan Dhul. The song became such a hit that Zulfi, the producer of the show, sent the track to Mohit Suri, director of the Bollywood film Ek Villain. He liked the song and approached both the band members and offered them a chance to revamp the song for his film Ek Villain. In an interview, Rabi revealed the backstory and said,
We were contacted by the manufacturers. Both the production house and Mohit Suri loved the song, so Adnan and I went through a lot of discussions and brainstorming and tweaked it to suit Ek Villain’s needs.
The song became very popular among fans and Rabi’s band earned 4 nominations in the Best Music Direction category in 2015. The song became a worldwide success and so did the members of the Soch band, Rabi Ahmed and Adnan Dhul. In response to the appreciation Rabi said,
The response has been encouraging and we are overwhelmed. Avari is being appreciated and appreciated all over the world. We are humbled by the appreciation and attention of people from all walks of life.”
In 2016, Rabi decided to give his time and effort to the Pakistani music industry, so his band wrote, composed and produced 4 out of 7 songs for the musical romantic film Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai. Later, he went on to create many hit songs like Tera Deewana (2021), Befikre (2019), Dushman E Jaan (Slow), etc.
In February 2019, Rabi released his song ‘Bol Hu’ in the first episode of Nescafe Basement Season 5, which was featured in the Bollywood thriller Malang.
One of the most prominent and prolific singers of the Indian music industry, Sonu Nigam breaks down in tears while listening to this song. He shared a video on social media reacting to the song and said that he is impressed by the tone and lyrics of the song, which seems impossible in this modern era.
Receiving praise from Sonu, Rabi responded by reposting the video on his Instagram handle with the caption,
We grew up following you and listening to your music, so it’s like a dream come true.”
Producer of Nescafe Basement, Zulfi also took to Facebook and thanked Sonu for his honest response to the song. He thanked the famous singer for inspiring the cast of the song. He said,
I don’t have only one thing to thank him, there are many things. The first thing I want to thank him for is the way his response must have excited the spirits of Adnan, Rabi and Hadiya. It has no comparison. They would like to work even more seriously towards their dreams. God has given you a gift; Don’t let it go to waste.”
Rabi Ahmed appeared on the 5th season of Coke Studio along with his co-band member Adnan and together with the Butt brothers produced the 14th song of the season ‘Nere Nere Vaas’. The song was originally a melodious track composed by Rabi and Adnan in the mid-2000s, which was revamped into a flamboyant Bhangra-style track using harmonium, tumbi, matka and chimta. Rabi clarified in an interview that he and his band members decided to convert the original melodious and soulful song into a peppy number as they did not want to be labeled as a Sufi band only.
