Why wait for a specified date and all the buildup to know the winners of awards when you can know it all now, I think I can be a credible authority with a valuable point of view on Pakistani music. I won’t be covering all the type of awards but rather select titles on which I believe are correct .Let us just cut the introductory portion short and go ahead with them awards.
Meri Kahani by Atif Aslam
Humsafar by Jami*
Some new (never seen before ) awards:
Best new song by an established artist:
Ujalon Mein by Mizraab**
Best new song by a new artist:
Faasley by Siege ***
Tabeer by Shafqat Amanat ali ****
Best Multi Artist Collaboration:
Yeh Hum Naheen
Song Of The Year:
Garaj Baras by Ali Azmat and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
* This year has been marvelous when it comes to videos, be it Saqibs Aitebaar, Babars Paheliyan,Zeeshans Gallan,Bilals Hungami Halaat,The social issues depiction by Sohail Javedin Beqaraar and Abhi Abhi,Ahsan was the most prominent with 3 brilliant videos , Aag,Ek Baar and the ultra bold Laga Reh which is second if not equal to the winner Humsafar .
** the only other song which could compete with Mizraabs single was Nooris Do dil,Jals Chalte Chalte is a good effort too.
*** Now I wasn’t at all sure about this one and still am confused on which song is better Faasley or Paheliyan by Mauj.
**** Although I shouldn’t have written this album here before listening to it properly but from what I have head of the album it isn’t upto mark to what Shafqat could have done with his
album. I would go more to say that Fuzons Journey is better.
I hope you enjoyed the award show this year and we look forward to see you next year with a more exciting show. With great albums lined up for release and with artists whom can’t go wrong ( Faakhir, Mauj, Kaavish,Ali Khan,Zameer,Call ) the albums are sure to deliver. Amen.
