Bilal Maqsood and Faisal Kapadia from Strings took over Coke Studio from the legend Rohail Hayat after the conclusion of season 6.
The four seasons by Strings gave us a number of memorable songs we are gonna sing for decades. Nobody can forget Atif Aslam’s Tajdar-e-Haram and Ali Hamza’s Paar Channa. These are only a few examples and a 50 more can be given.
It is now officially announced by Strings that season +10 will be the last one to be produced by them:
On one hand this is a tragic news as a lot of contribution is made by Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood and on the other hand after so much criticism and a disastrous season 10 they had to end it for good. Season 10 gave us artists like Zaw Ali and songs like Tinak Dhin. But, it also ruined something we grew up listening “Sayonee”.
Well the important thing to ask is who’s gonna take over now? Producing Coke Studio is not just a chance to showcase your talent. It is a responsibility. Coke Studio is undoubtedly the Sound of the Nation. It’s like sitting on the iron throne.
We heard a little birdie saying that Ali Noor and Ali Hamza aka Noori are approached to take over. We are not sure what their answer was.
Well who else do we have to take over this job?
Faakhir is a senior in this field and may be a great option.
Shiraz Uppal’s contribution in Coke Studio is impressive and he can serve well in this capacity.
Shafqat Amanat Ali
We can’t deny the fact that Shafqat Amanat is one of the best we have in this field.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Let’s hope for the best.
