You cannot get a hotter rising star in the Pakistani music industry these days other than former comedian and now better known as Rap singer, Ali Gul Pir. The man redefined the word ‘saeen’ and took it to a level beyond imagination. The hottest buzz surrounding the comedian turned singer is that after being nominated at 1st Hum TV awards, his name was skipped at the final moments without any notification to him. The act by 1st Hum TV Awards management has made him belligerent.
Ali while talking to a news source said,”I was surprised. I was unwell that day, but I arrived at the awards because I had been invited and my attendance was confirmed on the phone several times. The love I have gotten from all the people who have appreciated my work has been the biggest reward I could ever imagine. This nomination meant that I was being acknowledged by Hum TV; it would have been great to be appreciated by the seniors of entertainment industry as well”.” I was looking forward to the award,” he added.
When Hum Tv’s concerned authorities were asked for a word about the matter, GM publications and Public Relations of Hum Group, Shanaz Ramzi, termed the omission as the ‘management’s decision’. “It was the decision of the management — some of the awards were not given and these particular awards include Excellence in Fashion, Excellence in TV, Best Band and Best New Sensation in Music,” said Ramzi.
