Every year PSL releases an anthem, which is not meant to compete or better the previous year's track. Any song made for this occasion by anyone just adds to the celebration and we should encourage it as a nation and own it. We seem to have forgotten the message of unity the song is giving and focus on the who is singing it. We welcome all songs from fellow artists who are celebrating their love for cricket and their country too. Pakistan hai hamara, Pakistan hai tumhara. Pakistan 🇵🇰 Zinbabad! #HBLPSLV #HBLPSL #TayyarHain #Rockstar #AliAzmat
He also wrote, that the anthem released on the occasion of PSL aims to increase the happiness of this special event. We as a nation should appreciate and embrace it.
The singer mentioned, that instead of focusing on the spirit of unity that the anthem provides, we concentrate more on who the singer of that song is? He ends his post by appreciating all the artists performing for their country and shows his patriotism by the writing the slogan of, ‘Pakistan Zindabad’.
It is to be noted that the official anthem of PSL Five is sung by Ali Azmat, Arif Lohar, Haroon Rashid and Asim Azhar, which failed to impress the fans. This matter became controversial when Ali Azmat alleged on a TV show, that his rival singer Ali Zafar could have bought the bloggers to deliberately criticize his song on the social media.
In response to Ali Azmat’s allegations, Ali Zafar issued a video statement which humorously meant that if Ali Azmat’s song was not liked by the people, then it is ‘Bhai’s’ fault.
On a huge demand of his fans, Ali Zafar has started preparing for the PSL anthem himself and has announced two teasers that have become very popular on the social media, and all the fans are eagerly waiting for the completion of the anthem.
