From politicians to journalists and everyone in between, everyone has been trolling Coke Studio for its Momina Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir rendition of the classic Ko Ko Korina. Sindhi singer Jigar Jalal is the latest person to take a dig at Coke Studio.
It looks like people are still not over what Mustehsan and Ahad did to the classic song. They received a lot of backlash in October for their version of the 1960s track.
Jalal, who hails from Larkana, trolled the duo and studio in the most hilarious way. He said at the start of the video, “If Ahad and Momina can sing Coco Corina, why can’t Jigar Jalal?” Yes, he called it Coco Corina, poking fun at Coke Studio. We are already impressed by the singer’s sense of humour.
The interesting part is that his mocking version is better than the Coke Studio one — or it’s more well thought out at least. With Jalal donning a Sindhi topi and black sunglasses, playing an ektara, this cover is fun to listen to. Jalal’s accent and the fast cuts make the song energetic and enjoyable.
Originally sung by pop singer Ahmed Rushdi, Pakistan’s first pop song still rules hearts even 50 years after its release.
We must say, Goth Studio’s version of the classic is a genius.
