Platforms like Coke Studio and Nescafe Basement have given young aspiring singers hope to continue their passion. The music scenario in Pakistan has been getting really sound with time.
Coke Studio Pakistan has the reputation of being the best in the world and; Nescafe Basement encourages rising stars to not just do cover but also their own songs.
Given these platforms, Aqeel Ahmed and the guitar virtuoso, Amir Zaki are coming with another platform ‘Sing With Aqeel’. This social media platform is named after his founder Aqeel Ahmed Khan, who is a famous music composer and has been making music since past 25 years and Zaki will be a mentor.
This is the first ever social media singing show that will give an opportunity to those who are not privileged to one. While speaking to the Express Tribune, Aqeel senses an air of nepotism in the existing platforms. He said:
“You need to be part of a certain clout to make it there; you have to be a sellable product other than being talented.”
According to this format, more deserving people will be given a chance to be a part of this singing competition and perform live with musicians! The show welcomes people from all walks of life and aims to polish their talent.
