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.

    How many citizens attended? What was the ambience? If there was no ‘hulla gulla’ on today’s music theme then the kick-off will be another nostalgic showcase of the National Anthemn.
    The Anthemn brings only tears to our eyes and after it ends…all is forgotten.
    So, let’s live energetically and practically for Pakistan and turn its face around for a change. Look at the example of self-help on manhole covers by students (Mr. Fixit). Look at the beautiful wall paintings on M T Khan Rd. Let’s have some music in which there is energy and liveliness rather than an appeal for aid of the past. Let’s go ahead. SalamsRecommend
