He started his own style and from the beginning he showed that he is a talented singer and a star the newly developed Iranian Pop music can depend on. His third song, "Shab" (Night) is the song Ebi himself agrees made him a star. The song's lyrics were written by Ardalan Sarfaraz, one of the Iran's most famous songwriters. The song was first heard by people on Fereydoun Farrokhzad's show, Mikhake Noghreyi. The popularity of Fereydon Farokhzad's show immediately made Ebi very popular for the Iranian people.

Soon he became one of Mary's favorite students because of his talent and coachability.
