Season after season, Coke Studio continues to promote the Pakistani music industry. Be it Rohail Hyatt or Strings, the show has managed to gain international appreciation with each passing year. At the close of the tenth season, Strings bid farewell to Coke Studio and there were rumors of Rohail Hyatt coming back as the producer.

However, it has now been revealed that Ali Hamza and Zohaib Kazi will be teaming up to produce Coke Studio 11. Ali Hamza’s manager has confirmed the news to Something Haute.
Being a Coke Studio veteran, both as a featured artist and guest musician in previous seasons, Ali Hamza is likely to impress fans. His song ‘Tinak Dhin’ – which he produced for Coke Studio 10 and sang along with Ali Sethi and Waqar Ehsin – got them the Best Singer trophy at the Lux Style Awards (LSAs) 2018.
Zohaib Kazi has also been associated with the previous seasons of Coke Studio. Not just that, he’s the creator of the ‘Fanoos digital music series,’ which also got an LSAs nomination. In an Instagram post, he wrote, “P.S. Thank you to Coke Studio too as everything that I experienced there transformed me and inspired me to produce this. More power to you!
A little late to the celebrations – Lux Style Awards 2018 sheds their love twice by nominating Fanoos. 1. For Best Music Album 2. Riaz Qadri for singing ‘Takht Hazar’. It was a very emotional journey for me, wish I could share an ounce of what it did to me, how it effected me. Thank for your honest efforts in putting it out Patari. Khalid, Ahmer – you guys are ❤️❤️! Insiya – you’re the ghar ki murghi but still, love you for doing this with me. More love, power and prayers to all the contributing singers who were part of Fanoos ❤️. P.S. Thank you to Coke Studio too as everything that I experienced there transformed me and inspired me to produce this. More power to you! ❤️
Stay tuned for more news and updates regarding the upcoming season.
