Aleem started his career as a celebrity manager handling marketing & public relations for different celebrities.[3] Zafar helped many young artists and released several songs.

Among other people whom Aleem promoted was Qurat-ul-Ain Balouch. Her first ever cover song "Ankhian Nu Ren De" was released by Aleem on Koolmuzone which later on gained popularity across the globe.

Amidst all the promotional work, Aleem decided to embark on a journey of his own and, by the mid of 2011, started his own venture called Beats24x7, which focused on helping young individuals step up and promote their talents and show their skills to the world. Soon after the launch of Beats24x7, it was nominated at Pakistan Blog Awards, supported by Google, under the category of "Best Blog".

Aleem has released several songs with Asim Azhar, playing a significant part in Azhar's biggest breakthrough in India through Zee Network. Several music videos of Asim Azhar feature Aleem's name including 'Soniye', 'Mahi Ajaa' a track which was also featured in Coke Coke Studio (Pakistani TV program).

Venturing further into the industry, Aleem endorsed several well-known brands and even signed a film ’21Miles’ which was supposedly announced to be released back in 2016 but the project eventually came to an end without the film being released. Aleem was also nominated under the category of ‘Best Emerging Star in Social Media’ at Shorty Awards, along with an exclusive interview. Zafar is also the brand Ambassador of Swedish watch company Daniel Wellington.[9][10]
