Obaid appeared to be fond of music at a very young age and it didn’t take his family too long to discover and support his artistic talent.

Obaid had his first breakthrough as an Artist while he was still a Law Student, where his song titled “Sadai Qalbam” became an instant hit on both Afghan TV and Radio Stations. During this time, Obaid recorded some additional songs, however due to the sudden change in the political environment of Afghanistan, his songs were not broadcasted. In 1992, Obaid and his family were forced to leave Afghanistan due to the war and had to initially relocate to Ukraine and eventually in 1994, he landed in London, England where he has been residing since.
