After a prolonged illness, he breathed his last at Mitford Hospital at 5:30pm, confirmed Ershadul Haque Tinku, a close aide of Lucky Akhand.

His first album 'Lucky Akhand' was released by record label Sargam in 1984.
"Eiye Neel Monihar", "Amay Deko Na", "Ritiniti Jani Na", "Age Jodi Jantam" and "Sumona" are some songs of this album that earned him a huge fan following.

He had been a regular in many live music sessions on television ever since.
