WORLD famous singer Tasha Tah is set to make an appearance at a newly opened £180,000 drive-thru café in Blackburn next week.

The Chaayé Paani café - a converted shipping container - is located in the Brown Street car park next to Blackburn bus station and will welcome the singer next Tuesday (March 29).

Tasha Tah, who has over 100,000 followers on Instagram, is one of the UK’s foremost Asian singers. Since her debut single ‘Haan De Munde’ was released in 2011 she has achieved success both in the UK and India with her fusion of western and eastern tracks.

Her music videos have been viewed tens of millions of times on YouTube. In October last year she was featured on the front page of Grazia Pakistan.

A spokesperson for Chaaye Paani said: “UK chain Chaaye Paani is well known for attracting celebrities to its venues.

"In the past our brand has welcomed Akon, Bilal Saeed, Abdu Roziq, Adil Rashid, Silky and Mist.

“We are proud to bring another international superstar to one of our stores. Our Blackburn store opened in January 22 and has been a success and we thought it would be great to celebrate this achievement.

“Tasha Tah is an award winning British Asian music artist who now is based in Dubai.

"We are honoured to welcome her to Blackburn and are confident the people of Lancashire will give her a warm welcome.”

Chaayé Paani is translated as ‘tea and water’, a traditional phrase used to describe being hospitable, and has other outlets in Dewsbury, Reading, Sheffield, Bradford and Birmingham.

The café will offers a range of Asian tea, drinks, snacks and a kerbside service, with seating for 24 diners both inside and on the terrace area. The venture has created eight full-time roles and seven part-time roles, and is open until late.

Tasha Tah is set to be Chaaye Paani Blackburn from 8pm.
