- He is also referred to as Vick Singh.
- It was Punjabi singer Navi Ferozpurwala (also known as Navi Kamboz) who came up with the screen name Nawab for him.
- Nawab faced formidable hurdles in making the song Expert Jatt. Earlier, its music video was shot in Dubai and the song was sung on a high music scale. When Nawab presented the song to his close acquaintances, they recommended he lower the scale. Then, he again had to shoot the music video of the song due to lip sync issues. In fact, Nawab had to take a loan for completing the song. At first, he asked his family to invest in his project, but as they were already against his decision to pursue a career in the music industry, they refused to lend him money. Only his mother knew that had raised a loan for the song.
- He quit his job a year before the release of the song Expert Jatt to make the song.
