LAHORE: Ko Ko Korina has been trending non-stop on Twitter for the last three days. The Coke Studio rendition garnered hate on social media after Momina Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir were seen grooving to the preppy number.
Many known personalities came forward, sharing their thoughts on Ahmed Rushdi’s number – case in point: Shireen Mazari, Sherry Rehman and Adil Murad.
Now, Sajal Aly has taken to Instagram to give her stance on the matter and wrote, “Itni nafrat le kar kahan jaogay? (Where will you go with all this hate?)”
Senator Sherry Rehman agreed to Mazari’s stance and wrote, “I like the Leo Twins version of Ko Ko Korina much better than the flat version put out by Coke Studio. No harm in stating music likes and dislikes. And no need to make such choices the subject of convoluted debate.”
Same here. In fact I like the Leo Twins version of Koko Korina much better than the flat version put out by Coke Studio. No harm in stating music likes and dislikes. And no need to make such choices the subject of convoluted debate. https://t.co/sff8ZdBbWR

Earlier, the Minister of Human Rights took to Twitter to share her opinion on Coke Studio‘s interpretation of Ahmed Rushdi’s song.
“Horrendous!” she wrote. “Destroyed a great classic – why oh why, did Coke Studio allow such a massacre of this classic song?”
Ahad Raza Mir and Momina Mustehsan’s Ko Ko Korina was criticised by Twitterati for ‘destroying’ a classic. The song also marked Mir’s debut in the music show.
