We recently broke the news story of two Pakistani female artists – Komal Rizvi and Quratulain Balouch aka QB – who will be performing in Coke Studio Season4. But there are many other names that have been already revealed over digital media. One such name is JAL band a popular pop/rock music band from Lahore Pakistan, whose inclusion in Coke Studio was first reported by Aisha Ali at Apniisp. Its another debate whether they deserved the place or not or whether their inclusion was just based on ‘public demand’.
Then, KoolMuzone , A Pakistani Music Blog , reported that Sajjad Ali was spotted in Coke Studio. Keeping in mind, that Coke Studio directs the musicians to NOT TO disclose their inclusion ( unless they announce it via Press Release or Press Conference) News is News , it can be leaked and reported from anywhere , sometimes intentionally and sometimes even unintentionally. And in digital world, it is reported instantly and spreads so fast. Sometimes, the inside news stories are leaked from sources close to the artist and sometimes from the Coke Studio’s people. It is also experienced that sometimes some news or stuff is intentionally asked to LEAK which attracts more people only because it is tagged as ‘LEAK’.
The news we are bringing you from inside the Coke Studio is not directly coming from Official sources but only from sources ‘close’ to them. Since Coke Studio’s PR company LOTUS PR manages all this and always deny any story that we give in a very diplomatic style. The stories and rumors start to spread. We conclude our lecture here !
Another artist we are naming today for Coke Studio is a respected and legendary figure in Pakistani Folk Music.
He is none other than ‘Qameez Teri Kaali’ fame Siraiki Singer Ataullah Khan Essa Khelvi who has the record of selling most albums in the world with his name listed in Guinness Book of World Records. Yes, he was also spotted in Coke Studio and as the sources disclose he was with Sajjad Ali so there are chances that these two great acts have some collaborative song in pipeline for us.
In the end, we would like to say that this is all we would only be able to experience and believe once the Coke Studio starts airing on TV Channels. But for now these all stories are based on some facts and some ambiguities. Unless Coke Studio denies or confirm the News, we suggest you don’t believe, listen to us and read our blog next time.
We know , you will ! 😉
