Salman Ahmed trolled Pakistani band for making comedy instead of music

It seems like making a PSL anthem has turned into the new ‘it’ thing and everyone, everywhere is doing it. The social media trend spurred after the current PSL anthem came out and surplus users started criticising it while comparing it to the previous ones.

This also evoked several conspiracy theories against Ali Zafar which led to Ali Azmat’s recent comments on Waseem Badami’s show. This was followed by Zafar’s sarcastic video and his announcement of making his own PSL anthem.

However, if there’s anything that travels faster on social media than war, its memes and videos that take a dig at such situations.

Following the popular state of affairs, E Sharp, a local rock band hailing from Karachi that also participated in Battle of the Bands, uploaded their version of the ‘anthem’ for PSL.

This was called Bloody Gora and was in collaboration Dennis Does, who is an Australian ‘gora’  and social media personality.

Dennis also posted it from his Twitter, announcing that he wrote it himself. But everything was fun and games until musician Salman Ahmad re-tweeted their video and called for a serious action to be taken against this ‘threat to the music industry.’

“We must launch a movement to save the music industry from comedians masquerading as musicians,” he said.

His tweet was followed by several users criticising him for taking something so casual, too seriously.

Not to mention, the biggest criticism of them all came as a rebound troll by the band that uploaded the video in the first place. E Sharp shared Ahmad’s tweet on their Facebook page, telling him to ‘chill’.

“Salman bhai just chill and have a laugh, hum ne bhi buhat arsay khamoshi se comedy sahi hai aap ki (We have also quietly tolerated your comedy for a long time),” they said.

However, the band did not specify as to whether they were genuinely referring to Ahmad’s jokes, or his music – given that he took a jibe at their’s.

Nevertheless, whatever the real joke maybe, only the band knows.
