Since the news of Coke Studi Season 12 began to surface, there were a lot of rumors Atif Aslam would play a pivotal role this season. In the past, Atif Aslam and Rohail Hyatt gave us some amazing pieces we still love to play on those long drives. Jal Pari, Charka Nolakha, Kinara, Mai ni Main and several more. However, his appearances became quite less in the past few seasons. Coke Studio and Atif Aslam go together like Coke and Fast Food. We are loving the fact Atif Aslam is in the Coke Studio Season 12 lineup.

Another great news for the fans of Rohail Hyatt’s Coke Studio. Names like Momina Mustehsan, Asim Azhar, and actors-turned singers, are visibly absent from the Coke Studio Season 12 lineup. They are popular singers, without a doubt. But people have accused them of being “Parchis”. And that they do not belong to the legendary music show. The fans of show lashed out when Mehvish Hayat, Ahad Raza Mir, and other actors were added to the Coke Studio lineup while popular underground bands and singers were ignored. Who can forget the Ko Ko Korina disaster of last year’s Coke Studio?

We can’t be happier Coke Studio is on its way back to its legendary status. There are some authentic and inspiring musicians this year. Here’s to hoping Coke Studio Season 12 will live up to the expectations of fans!
