Early life[edit]

Nishat (Nish) was born in Leyton, London to Bengali Muslim parents. He is of Sylheti origin and was raised in a traditional Sunni Islamic household. He is also a devout Arsenal FC fan.[10] Monsur began singing at the age of five and has been trained in classical Indian music.[4] He stated that he takes some inspiration from singer Ryan Leslie.[11] He first started making covers of songs and uploaded them on YouTube and SoundCloud. He was educated in Ilford County High School

In 2010, he made his acting, directing and filming debut in the film Don't Call Back.[12][13]

In 2011, he participated in the first international reality television show in Bangladesh, Forgotten Roots,[14] following the journey of 10 young adults from across the world in the search for their forgotten roots.
