When a Sweet Little Tribute Grabs the Right Appreciation – Hamza J. Sheikh’s Tribute to Danyal Zafar’s Muntazir from Coke Studio 10 Grabs Ultimate Attention

Recently, one of my contributions was published on a leading online magazine of Pakistan "Parhlo". Unfortunately, it was quite edited and the whole article was not published. For this reason, I'm uploading my complete article, so that it can reach the people in its complete form.

It has always been a pleasure watching Coke Studio from the very first day it went on-air. This sensational yet uniquely arranged musical venture is itself a great tribute to the legendary musicians and singers of Pakistan. A music program that stands out in the whole world because of its never getting old musical concept and the way it has molded the soulful voices of young Pakistanis with its mesmerizing and heartwarming music techniques.

Image may contain: night

Recently, an uptown lad from Karachi tried his guts to present an amazing tribute to none-other-than Danyal Zafar who himself is just fresh in the music industry. Danyal is the younger brother of the famous actor, singer and model Ali Zafar who have been connected to this field for quite a long time now. Hamza J. Sheikh, who is an Advertising student, pursued his passion for singing in a very different way. Hamza loves to sing whenever he gets ample time from his studies. A few days back, he randomly sang a few lines of his ever favorite song from Coke Studio Season 10, Muntazir by Danyal Zafar and Momina Mustehsan and uploaded it onto his YouTube Channel and Facebook Fan Page. He then tweeted the same song on one of the social media portals “Twitter,” tagging Coke Studio, Danyal Zafar, and Momina Mustehsan. My God, this was his lucky day as in just a few minutes Coke Studio itself took the pleasure to reply to Hamza’s tweet, appreciating his amazing voice and great effort.

But that was not all, as there was something more exciting coming up. There was a retweet from Mr. Danyal Zafar himself that made Hamza’s day one of never ending and unforgettable moments. It was a tweet that appreciated Hamza for his great musical tribute and effort. Hamza has been into skies after this amazing interaction by the people themselves and this, in turn, has boosted his courage to bring out something more splendid next time.

Hamza J. Sheikh is a die-hard fan of Ali Zafar. He is completely inspired by Zafar’s musical journey and wants to continue his singing passion along with his studies. Other than his tribute to Danyal Zafar, Hamza has also personally performed some amazing covers by Ali Zafar especially his PSL-2 Anthem. It was a great tribute to Ali Zafar that crossed more than 66k views. Why don’t we have a sneak look to some of his amazing work and appreciate his utmost effort towards our strong music industry:

Follow Hamza J. Sheikh on:

Thank you all for your love and patience.

Now comes the mega celebration that was already entertaining the Dolmen Mall lovers at the lower ground floor of the mall. The view was unique and was approachable throughout the mall. Anyone from any floor of the mall can view and hear the on going Azadi extravaganza. It was a complete Azadi Show that was hosted by none other than VJ Tahir Ali Shah. One's feelings were out of this world while listening to loud patriotic songs and a live band. Tahir started off the show with some Azadi activities and games. The audience got a good chance to come up on the stage and heart-out the songs they always wanted to sing live in front of so many people. Gift vouchers were distributed along with many handy wishes and good luck.

The host Tahir Ali Shah kept the crowd busy with his question and answer session and different activities. By the time clock struck 11.45 am, comes the main performer of the day. Yes, none other than the very talented singer Mustafa Zahid from the band Roxen. The crowd went all crazy with just a single glimpse of this guy. The guy took over the stage with his mesmerizing looks and soulful voice. My God isn't he charming? His voice is just out of this world, just perfect for the Azadi event. The crowd was kept busy with some patriotic songs until it was time for midnight and the countdown began to celebrate the Independence Day of Pakistan. The time clock struck 12, Mustafa began singing the National Anthem of our beloved country with full enthusiasm along with the crowd that made this whole event a big success. There was an amazing burst of fireworks along with a shower of green and white chits to celebrate the day more heartily.

Blood Donation By Celebrities - The Most Thoughtful Gesture Towards Mankind (Press Release)

KITCC, Karachi, Pakistan, 24th July 27, 2017: There’s a difference between people who donate blood and those who support its donation. But Pakistan’s favorite actor and popular TV host FaysalQuraishi has proved himself to be the finest of them all!  

In an effort to encourage more people to donate blood, FaysalQuraishi has recently decided to have his fingers pricked and presenting his own blood in support of the Kashif Iqbal Thalassemia Care Center (KITCC) blood donation request.

According to reports, Faysal received a voice note from the representative of KITCC informing about the urgent requirement of fresh, healthy, blood donations to save lives of their young patients.

Mr. Quraishi was quick to respond to this call and chose to share this message on his official Facebook page immediately. He then resolved to offer a pint of his own blood too...and this he would do LIVE on his television show. Interestingly Faysal’s show is also called “Salam Zindagi” (meaning “Salute to life”)

Although it is generally believed that acts of kindness are best done secretively to get better rewards from Almighty, this particular action was done in public to set an example for Faysal’s many fans and as inspiration for his followers.

The voice note said, "There's been a sharp drop in the number of young, healthy, people donating blood to us, owing to the long summer vacations in Karachi’s colleges & universities. Our blood reserves have dried up and there is an urgency to replenish the supply. A failure to boost the number of young donors has now put a strain on the blood service for our thalassemia patients…Children are dying."

An official statement from Faysal Quraishi quoted him saying, "I really want to support this appeal because giving blood is such an amazing thing to do. Blood isn't just needed when people have accidents - it's also used to help treat health conditions like cancer, thalassemia, long term illnesses and in maternity care. I would urge healthy people to consider blood donation as it takes only a little of your time, but can save lives…” 

To find out if you are eligible to become a blood donor and make a date to donate please call KITCC on 0335 2890020.

Just remember: Blood cannot be given more frequently than 16 weeks, which is only three times a year. To find out more please consult your physician.

Makeup Grabs from

Aloha Peeps,

It has been a while I have not written about some of the makeup I have recently grabbed. There is a lot of unboxing still to be done so I can share my purchases with you people. 

Just a month back I was surfing the internet and came across '', a website that deals in authentic cosmetics and related accessories. It was my first time to shop from this particular website so thought of grabbing a few items for daily use. The website is easy to use and the purchasing process was smooth and prompt. In no time, I got my order confirmation email and then the challenge started to wait for my order.   

New the real struggle started where I had to wait for my order and I'm the one who made a call to know about my order status. Upon 2-3 follow-ups, I finally received my stuff and that is too incomplete. Two items from the order were missing and the rider told me that they will be delivered soon but till date nothing came as such. The parcel was packed extremely unprofessionally and seems like I have bought stuff from a local vendor. Now comes the products, all of them were genuine and thankfully intact. 

Now let's see what I actually bought:

I ordered three MUA (Makeup Academy) Matte Lipsticks and one NYX Blush. Was super-excited as I got the blush on discounted price and lipsticks on very good competitive price. 

MUA Matte Lipsticks Shades:
  • Fawn Fancy (Nude Mauve)
  • Scarlet Siren (Cool Red)
  • Mystic Marsala (Toned-Down Pink)

NYX Blush Shade:
  • Rose Garden (Mild Glittery Rosy Pink)

MUA Matte Lipsticks

MUA Matte Lipsticks

Left to Right - Fawn Fancy, Mystic Marsala, Scarlet Siren

NYX Blush

Rose Garden 

The texture of the lipstick is pretty creamy with a matte finish. It doesn't dry out and stays for quite a long time but requires a slight touchup from the inner side of the lips. These MUA Matte Lipsticks are easy on the pocket and perfect for daily use and even for nights out. The NYX Blush on-the-other-hand is a bit glittery but gives you a very fine peachy pink texture. Overall, my experience with these products are amazing just had a little issue with '' services. Looking forward to have some more shopping experience with '' until they improve their packaging and service. Stay tuned for more updates and reviews only on 'Glam Galore'.
