If you’re a fan of Afreen by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, you’ll love this musician’s rendition that has now gone viral.
After Rahat and Momina’s Coke Studio duet received ample criticism, Abdullah Qureshi took to Facebook to sing what he termed the “most beautiful verse” of the song that had not been included in the Rahat-Momina performance.

“Sorry Coke Studio, but you missed the most beautiful verse of the song, so I couldn’t stop myself from singing it. No comparisons please. Khan Saab will always be the King! #Afreen,” Abdullah wrote in a Facebook post.
While talking to The Express Tribune, Abdullah said, “I myself never compare musicians. I believe every artist has their own style and it should be kept that way.”
Abdullah’s post has amassed nearly 20,000 shares and 37,000 likes in less than a day. The musician from Islamabad however, claims that his intention was just to cover the overlooked verses.

“I didn’t properly cover the song, that wasn’t the intention, I’ve done that already and that was three-four years ago. I just casually sang the missing verse that was stuck in my head. Stop comparing guys please,” said Abdullah in another post.
