Early Life of Emiway Bantai

Emiway Bantai was born on November 13, 1995 in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

He belongs to a middle-class orthodox family and he’s currently 25 years old.

His real name is ‘Bilal Shaikh’

however he’s popularly known as ‘Shahrukh Shaikh’ and ‘Emiway Bantai’ as it’s his stage name.

He studied and took his primary education from 1st to 10th class from ‘Lakshdham High School, Mumbai’.

He has always been a brilliant student whose ambition was to become a Doctor in his school days while, he also had a habit/hobby of reading books and novels.

Family Details of Emiway Bantai

His father’s name is ‘Gani Shaikh’ and his father has always supported him in every way possible.

Emiway Bantai With His Parents

Of course, there was also his mother who always believed in him,

but his father has always been Emiway’s biggest support system.

As the most common thing about most of the over-achiever’s,

During his school days, as he was a very shy and an introvert person, he didn’t like to talk much.

Introduction To Music

Later In 2010-2012, he came to know about ‘Eminem’ who’s popularly known as ‘Rap God’ from his friends while hanging out with his friends.

At that time, Emiway was completely unaware of Rap songs and other things.

The moment he listened to the first rap of his life, he became a huge fan of rapping and also of ‘Eminem’.

(PS – the first Eminem’s song which Emiway heard was “NOT AFRAID”).

From that very moment, he became very much addicted to raps, which was a very positive thing for him.

In the mere timespan of just two days,

He learnt all of the lyrics of the song ‘Not Afraid’ and listened to as much songs of Eminem as possible.

He then in the next day, rapped the same song for his friends in the school, and his friends liked it so much and then it was this time,

When he got huge support for rapping from his friends.

After listening to most of the songs by Eminem, he found out about ‘Lil Wayne’.

Soon after some time, his new hobby was to learn the lyrics of the raps from his favorite rappers, and to rap for his friends.

The most beautiful thing which had happened with him was that, he had his huge support from his family and friends.

His family first did not show support but when they heard Emiway rapping,

Then it was sure for them that he can do very much good in the field.

Seeing his interest in the field, his friends then suggested him to write his own lyrics and start making his own raps.

Career Details of Emiway Bantai

Finally, on May 25, 2013 he released his first rap on his YouTube channel which was named as ‘Glint Lock’ while his YouTube Channel’s name is ‘Emiway Bantai’.

Emiway Bantai’s First Song on YouTube

It was very hard for a 17-year-old guy to make produce his own songs/rap and shoot them with all the beats and other necessary things.

He first had tried for the famous and well-known show called ‘India’s got Talent’ but it was very unfortunate for him that he wasn’t selected, which was a good thing that he’s not selected I believe,

This was the reason why he opened his YouTube Channel and started releasing his own raps.

But it was a small progress every time.

In the initial days of him making rap,

he didn’t expect anything from this field, he initially only focused on rap as his one of the hobbies, but soon after seeing all the response he’s getting, he started taking the field seriously.

Emiway Bantai First Earning Details

Emiway didn’t take money anytime from his parents for making his rap videos, he used to gather money by doing a job at a café called ‘Hard Rock Café’ from Mumbai, where he used to get ₹ 300/day.

One more thing I want to tell you guys here, is that Emiway Bantai, received ‘Radio City Freedom Award’ in the same café where, he used to work as a waiter who arranged chairs and tables in the café.

Switching Rap Language To Hindi

After releasing some of his own songs on his channel, his father once asked him to rap for him.

After listening to some of Emiway’s raps,

his father suggested him to try writing the lyrics in Hindi, as he was unable to understand, and said that,

No one is going to dance at English songs/rap songs like this, so he should write songs in Hindi.

Getting Fame

It was that time in 2014, when Emiway wrote lyrics for ‘Aur Bantai’ which got viral, he then released ‘Sadak’ and many more songs, and from that moment, Emiway never turned back, and he’s the most known rapper from India, I personally believe.

Aur Bantai


From this story, I just want to tell you guys that, being consistent and dedicated to you work always pays off and no one gets success or in the first position as soon as they start working in the field, success needs time, as the famous and the Richest investor in the world, Sir Warren Buffett says

“Success needs time, as you can not give birth to a child in one month by making nine woman pregnant”

which is funny, but a harsh reality.
