Netizens are slamming Aima Baig for ruining the national anthem at the opening ceremony of HBLPSL 8 on Monday 13th February in Multan.
Aima Baig sang her rendition of the national anthem of Pakistan at the beginning of the opening ceremony at Multan Cricket Stadium. Aima Baig wore a white-colored long dress to the ceremony. Her performance failed to create an impact on the netizen.
According to netizens, the singer was more focused on her hair rather than hitting the rights notes. One user said that the performer should have been careful that it is the national anthem of Pakistan not a cover for a TikTok video. Sorry aima I can’t defend you here,” said another user.

“Clearly an unpopular opinion but I love it. she did a pretty good job of keeping it authentic while also not ending up doing ‘too much’. Pakistanis really need to stop hating everything other than the ordinary.

Another user said that the performance would have been much better if it was a duet with another male singer probably.

Mixed views came regarding the opening ceremony of HBL PSL 8. The anthem of PSL failed to create an impact this year too. Netizens say the firework display was the only thing they liked about the opening ceremony. Aima Baig, Shae Gil, Asima Azhar, and Sahir Ali Bagga performed at the opening ceremony of HBL PSL 8.
