Singer Shiraz Uppal has slammed Aima Baig for claims that the late Shakeel Sohail co-wrote her latest release ‘Funkari’.In a video interview to Dawn Images, Baig claimed that Sohail co-wrote the song and that they began writing it together three years earlier.
Uppal, who is credited as the writer and composer in the caption of the official the YouTube video of the song, said in an Instagram story, “She forgot to give the due credit that [has] already [been] mentioned by Universal Music India on her YouTube credits.”
He said Sohail passed away six months before the song was written and the last song he co-wrote with him was ‘Faraq Faraq’, which was also written for Baig. “So ‘Funkari’ was written, composed and produced by me and you just came to sing it. That only took three hours,” he wrote.
Images has reached out to Baig for a comment.
