Shireen Mazari called Coke Studio’s version of Ko Ko Korina ‘Horrendous’

News Desk |

Dr. Shireen Mazari, the Federal Minister for Human Rights strongly reacted to the Coke Studio rendition of Pakistan’s Classic Ko Ko Korina that was released in its 9th episode. Shireen Mazari clearly expressed her dislike on the social media.

She while sharing the video of the song tweeted, “Horrendous! Destroyed a great classic – why oh why did Coke Studio allow such a massacre of this classic song?”

Momina Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir performed Ko Ko Korina in Coke Studio 11. Fans and followers who were anxiously waiting for the debut of Ahad Raza Mir were immensely upset after the release of the episode. Unfortunately, the song is circulating amongst the netizens for all the wrong reasons.

People, however, agreed with Dr. Shireen Mazari and sarcastically called it a human right violation. The followers also failed to understand why the debut of Ahad Raza Mir’s was saved for the final episode of the season.

‘Ko Ko Korina’ is a popular song that was sung by Pakistan’s great musician Ahmed Rushdi and has been an ever-green song in the musical history of Pakistan.

The Coke Studio 11 version that saw the debut of Zohaib Kazi and Ali Hamza did not resonate well with the audience. The season of nine episodes on social media garnered a negative response from the listeners.

The duo is highly criticized for pulling the bar of the Coke Studio glaringly low in this season. The fans and followers demand the return of the Rohail Hyatt, who directed the early seasons of the show.

Except for the  ‘Shikwa and Jawab-e-Shikwa’ none of the episodes impressed the audiences. It seems as Coke Studio Pakistan highly celebrated musical platform lost its charm this year.

Despite the inclusion of big names like Abrar-ul-Haq, Momina Mustehsan, Jawad Ahmed, Humaira Arshad, Ali Sethi this year’s version was not impressive.
