A rendition of the classic Ko Ko Korina by Ahad Raza Mir and Momina Mustehsan has left several people disappointed.
The cover, which marked Mir’s singing debut, was recently aired on Coke StudioSeason 11 and, despite the Yakeen Ka Safar actor and Momina’s stardom, it did not go down well with fans. Several, including Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari, are among those who took to Twitter to slam and question the rendition.
Mazari wrote: “Horrendous! Destroyed a great classic – why oh why did Coke Studio allow such a massacre of this classic song?”
After the release of Coke Studio’s version of ‘Ko Ko Korina’ goes on air; the whole Pakistan goes nuts and social media take the criticism on the music video to the next level. Many hardcore music enthusiasts call it a ‘balatkar’ of the original version. A young music student candidly said that i was thinking of ‘suicide’ over this worst version of ‘Ko Ko Korina’. Another heartbroken fan of KKK said,
“Momina Mustehsan’ll ruin every song I love, and there’s nothing I can do about it”
Here is the Video link of this suicidal number:
A known publication, Images writes:
The Parwaaz Hai Junoon actor launched his singer self with a cover of ’60s track ‘Ko Ko Korina’ along with Momina Mustehsan. A gutsy move, considering how iconic the track is, ever been to a mehndi where this wasn’t sung? Neither have we. But Coke Studio was confident in their cover, claiming “This Ko Ko Korina remix by Coke Studio will also be one of the top Pakistani songs of 2018 and will become a famous Ahad Raza Mir song.”
But…………… It didn’t go so well.
Here is the link of the original version of ‘Ko Ko Korina’:
Looks like Pakistan did not quite enjoy their rendition of the track and Twitter has proof. Lots of it.
Coke Studio Mission: “Let’s remake all the classics and ruin them in all possible ways” #KoKoKorina
Thank you @cokestudio for brutally ruining #KoKoKorina song. it’s not a music studio now, it’s becoming acting and glamor studio. these two, so called singers, completely ruined the sense of this classic song.
No remake can beat the original song.If you don’t like it then kindly don’t listen to it and stick to the original.I’m pretty sure nobody from you guys hear the original version of #KokoKorina these days but because somebody tried,suddenly it became your fav song. #ahadrazamir
Ahad : im a worst singer Momina : sachiiiiiii,me bhiiii #KoKoKorina
Listening to kokokorina: Plz someone stop it..
