Pakistani music producer Rohail Hyatt confirmed that he will produce one more season of Coke Studio, which will be his seventh. He said this in an interview with BBC Urdu.

However he further clarified on his facebook page that he will not be producing Coke Studio 8.

“Just for the record, I’m not producing the next season of Coke Studio Pakistan (2015). I think the BBC interview is being interpreted by some as if I am producing this season.. What I meant to say was that I would like to produce my 7th season of Coke Studio one day.. I hope this clears any confusion,” He said on facebook.

However sources have also revealed that there is a possibility that Rohail Hyatt might return to Coke Studio on its 10th anniversary to produce a finale. Nothing is confirmed yet. On the other hand it is confirmed that despite the criticism they faced in the production of Coke Studio 7, Strings will be the producers for Coke Studio 8.

They are already looking for potential artistes and some international collaboration cannot be ruled out as well. Some of the well known Pakistani pop artistes are also expected to make their comeback in Coke Studio in season 8.

Right after its beginning seven years back, Coke Studio began the most looked after music show of the sub continent under the auspices of Hyatt. Rohail the seat of the producer of Coke Studio season six due to personal reasons and Strings took over as the new producers.

    If Coke Studio knows what’s good for them….they will politely decline.Recommend

    Pakistanis love to criticize and Coke Studio is the best platform for them to criticise every year. People wait a whole year for Coke Studio to come so they can start auditing the music as if they are born Mozart or Beethoven

    There was nothing wrong with the last season under Strings. If we have 6-7 great songs in a season, it is good enough but our self proclaimed music genius are ready to bash legends like Abida Parveen.Recommend

    Rohail was the real force behind what Coke Studio is today. Last season was just a rehash of old popular songs. Bring him back!Recommend

    RH was awsome in that he managed to fuse together the folk and the contemporary music amazingly. He’s naturaly good at this.
    Not bad effort by Strings but they are way behind the concept of CS. The basic concept was the fusion which they lacked.
    Someone pointed above that Salman Ahmed be given a chance…..not bad. But let’s see how Strings reply in the new season. Recommend
