Born in Habiganj, Bangladesh, Rizwan Hussain was the third child amongst five and arrived in the UK at the age of 6 months. His father, a retired soldier of the British Army and Mother settled in Loughborough, Leicestershire.

As a child, Rizwan was often described as shy. In school, he was quietly confident and was hugely popular amongst his classmates. He maintained a keen interest in performing in school plays and dramas, though his secret desire to become an actor rapidly fell by the wayside as his father expressed an interest in him studying law to become a Barrister.

Rizwan went on to study law at the University of Derby and then to study to become a Barrister at the Inns of Court School of Law in London. Rizwan was called to the Bar at Lincolns Inn.
Despite the years of study, Rizwan was not particularly keen on practising as barristers and as a result diverted his attention to various other vocations. Over the next  ten years he went on to qualify and work as a lecturer of law, a police officer, journalist, radio and television presenter, businessman, human rights lawyer, composer and singer.

Rizwan Hussain became interested in music in the late 90’s, and began performing under the band name “Sargam” and eventually became known throughout the UK as songwriter and solo artist of popular albums Jaan and B-Boy.
