Pakistanis are waiting with bated breath for the Season 12 of the popular Coke Studio, after much speculation about it opening with a single, powerhouse performance by Atif Aslam.
Atif Aslam will be performing one song – a heavyweight in its own right – called ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’. We’re getting spiritual vibes already.
A hamd penned by Muzaffar Warsi, the lyrics of ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’ reflect the praise of God as the omnipotence, who maintains the balance and harmony in the universe.
It is about the connection with the divine and was made famous by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Reflecting on his life journey, Atif Aslam has said, “I still don’t think I have made it. When I started, for the first few years, I used to think, with fame and money, I’d made it.
But after that I asked myself, ‘What have you made? This is all material that you have.’ After that, the real search started. That is when the fun started. Even today, I am caught in that search. I will keep at it, always.”
The behind the scene footage is out, describing the visual journey of the making of the hamd. The devout track is scheduled to release on October 11, marking the opening of the season.
