The city of lights was lit up on Friday night to show support for their Pakistan Super League team, Karachi Kings, with several artists including Ali Azmat, Komal Rizvi, Umar Shareef, Saleem Javed and Fuzon joining celebrations.
The event kicked off with a display of fireworks, followed by a honourary appearance by Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad, who played a guitar solo of the national anthem. The governor’s guitar was a little out of tune but the patriotic tune managed to rile up the crowd.
While Fahad Mustafa geared up to host the event, many chose to catch up with friends while others snapped away, posing for selfies.
The event was held at Karachi’s National Stadium on Friday to launch Pakistan Super League’s Karachi Kings, where Sindh’s longest serving governor showcased a side of himself which many were not aware of.
Make some noise for Governor Ishratul Ebad #KarachiKings
