“Hum Kyun Chalain Us Rah Per, Jis Rah Per Sab He Chalain, Kyun Na Chunain Wo Rasta Jis Per Nahi Koi Gaya”. These magical lines emotionally struck every listener who watched the final episode of Coke Studio that was released on September 23rd. None of the listeners could stop themselves singing along these lines.

In the final episode, the stars of Coke Studio came together in a bid to remember the figure who was loved by all. ‘Ali Hamza’, ‘Ali Zafar’, ‘Bilal Maqsood’ and ‘Faisla Kapadia’ of the “Strings” joined their vocals to sing “Us Rah Per”.

The musical band composed of the duo, Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia agreed on his request. According to them, their performance was a special contribution because they had shared many moments together with the patron of the song, Junaid Jamshed and Bilal Maqsood was the director of the original video of the song.

While on the other hand, Coke Studio season 10 failed to inspire its audiences. People are now demanding to bring back Rohail Hayatt as the executive producer in the coming seasons.

Junaid Jamshed, who died in a plane crash near Havellian, Pakistan, last year was one of the most revered personality among the religious and musical community. The performers too were seen sharing their thoughts and emotions they had for the singer, before the recording of the song.

The deceased, shunned his musical career during the early 2000’s and turned towards spirituality and then soon became known as the religious motivational preacher.
