YouTube video of the day: Dare to be a desi Pitbull?

We saw Akon trying to be desi with the song Chammak Challo and now we have two local boys attempting to be something they are definitely not good at.

Nouman Khalid, referred to as the Pitbull of Pakistan by some listener on YouTube, featuring a rapper who prefers to be known as Osama Com Laude, released his song called Desi Thumka – which has some 'thumkas' but definitely nothing 'desi' in it.

Laude raps in English, while Khalid sings in Punjabi to a typical Punjabi beat with flashes of young women dressed in western attires wearing red lipstick, dancing.

The 23,247 views, 213 likes and 112 comments (with most of them in praise of the song) on the video shows that either Pakistanis have been terribly devoid of music lately or music lovers’ tastes have become a little too sour.

Video rating: Two thumbs down

Maybe its time that we appreciate if someone tries to create something original which is also fun to listen to. A critics job is not only to ridicule but also to appreciate an innovation.
