He is active on the social media platforms such as Facebook with 96000 followers and Instagram with 160000 followers.
Rabbani has also received a silver play button from YouTube in the year 2019.
He has also appeared in many music videos and short films under leading banners and have garnered acknowledgement with his performances.
He along with his team – Buddies (YouTube channel) has distributed food supplies, safety kits and other essentials to 150 families at Bhuragaon.
The beneficiaries are mostly petty shop owners, farmers and daily wage earners, who resides in the flood prone areas and due to the transport bottlenecks and immobility hazards they are presently confined in their home with limited supplies and struggling for a living.
Rabbani through his sincere efforts and initiative in helping the communities is setting an example for the privileged section of the society and the youth to help each other to combat the trying times.
