Coke Studio has found an ally in Nescafe Basement producer, Xulfi, who has taken to social media to insist people should see things differently.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, Zulfiqar explained that he decided to share his message due to “the current criticism thrown at Coke Studio.”
In the post, the famed musician claimed that while liking or disliking the content being produced is a matter of opinion, it is great that music is being talked about in general.
Xulfi also said that he’s hopeful that collaborations keep taking place. “We are lucky to have music shows like Coke Studio and Nescafe Basement in our country,” he added.
Not everyone is critical about the current season though. A lot of people on Twitter continue to express their love for perhaps Pakistan’s most popular music show ever:
