Rumour has it that Pakistani rock-band Noori will be taking over Strings as the new producers of Coke Studio season 11.
Earlier this morning, fans of the musical platform took to Twitter, asking Noori to take over after Strings confirmed their exit from the show. There was ample excitement at the possibility and word spread quickly. Also, last year, a source close to the show suggested that it will be Noori who takes the reigns from Strings.
However, the band’s manager has denied the rumours. Speaking to The Express Tribune, he said, “The rumours are false. Ali Noor and Ali Hamza are not involved in producing Coke Studio 11 as of yet.” The two artists, however, were not available to comment.
String recently broke the news that they’re bidding farewell to Coke Studio and it has enriched them in ways unimaginable – just like they enriched Coke Studio.
“Coke Studio Season 10 will be the last season produced by Strings. It has been a fantastic journey for us over the course of four seasons and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to learn and share our work with all of you. 2018 will mark 30 years of Strings and we are super excited to celebrate with all of you so stay tuned for more updates as we embark on yet another exciting chapter in our musical journey!” read a statement by the Dhaani hit-makers.
It remains undecided who will succeed Strings at the helm of the new season.
