Sameer Hussain from Bikaner, Rajasthan first gained interest in singing because of former Sa Re Ga Ma Pa finalist Raja Hasan. Having developed a strong passion for music, he started training under his mother and then under his Nanaji, Ustaad Rafiq Sagar. He learnt classical singing from his Uncle. He came to Mumbai 4 years back to try his luck here and has struggled a lot since then. He currently works at a bar in Mahim as a singer but hates his job since he feels that singers are not respected at such places. Apart from music, Sameer loves playing cricket.
