Diplo tells Trump to back off


News Desk |

World famous American music producer and Dj, Diplo, has asked President Trump not to spoil diplomatic ties with Pakistan. He fears the strained ties between the two countries may affect his musical concert planned next month in Pakistan.

The singer is expected to arrive in Pakistan next month. Diplo will be performing as part of his trio Major Lazer. Joining him will be Chrome Sparks, Valentino Khan, ZoH, as well as Pakistani counterparts Adil Omar and Talal Qureshi (SNKM), Lyari Underground, Shamoon Ismail, Haider Mustehsan, Mikki Murshed and Osama Com Laude.

Diplo’s recent statement portrays a humble aspect of American society that hopes to establish friendly relations with Pakistan.

Diplo said: “I really want to do a show in Pakistan. I think the best way of any kind of diplomacy with Pakistani people is with music. And the concert should be like any other show we do with kids.”

Regarding Trump’s controversial tweet criticizing Pakistan Diplo said: “Trump should back off. I hope Twitter blocks him at some point for harassment.” “Well, we’ve been giving aid to Pakistan for many, many years. I hope it doesn’t affect the show”, he added further.

Diplo wishes to establish cordial relations with Pakistan and its youth. As opposed to the US government Diplo sees the potential in Pakistan for establishing ties beyond strategic partnership.

He said: “I think the most important thing for America is to make a good connection with Pakistani people and the youth since we are so estranged from them right now”.

Pakistan-US ties saw another downturn after President Trump, in his ferocious tweet, shamed Pakistan for acquiring billions in foreign assistance in recent years from the US and accused Pakistan of lies and deceit. 

“On one hand we have the socio-political element where you have to deal with infrastructure and Afghanistan, but if we give them the right assets like education, they can grow and be our allies on a personal level, not just legislature.
