PSL 8: Shae Gill, Asim Azhar, Faris Shafi to feature in official anthem

Young musician Abdullah Siddiqui wrote this year’s official anthem for the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Siddiqui will make the PSL anthem for the second year in a row. Last year, he worked with Atif Aslam and Aima Baig to make the “Agay Dekh” anthem for PSL 7.

Asim Azhar and Shae Gill will sing this year’s anthem, which was confirmed by the PSL on its official account. Sources told that Faris Shafi, the third singer, will give the song a rap feel.

Ali Sethi, the son of the head of the PCB Management Committee, Najam Sethi, was hired to sing the PSL 8 song before. The people who made Pasoori were going to make the song for this year. But Najam, who had been chairman of the PCB twice before, decided to get out of the deal with his son to avoid a conflict of interest.

“Ali won’t be able to sing the anthem, which makes me sad. Ali is upset about this as well, “Last month, Najam talked about it at a press conference.

“When I’m not here, Ali Sethi will sing the national anthem. You need to know where I stand. I don’t want to get in the middle of a conflict of interest argument “he had said.

In season 14 of Coke Studio, Ali and Shae sang “Pasoori,” which became a huge hit all over the world. The Pasoori team was hired to make the anthem when Ramiz Raja was in charge of the PCB.

Last year’s anthem, which was also made by Abdullah, had more than 10 million YouTube views.

For the first time in the league’s history, the opening ceremony and first game will be held in Multan. On February 13, the defending champions, the Lahore Qalandars, will play at home against the Multan Sultans.
