Apparently singer Zoheb Hassan has worked out his reservations with Pakistan Super League’s about the act of using his late sister Nazia Hassan’s song on the opening ceremony. Aima Baig rendered Disco Deewane at the inaugural of the event in Dubai.
The singer shared on his Twitter account that their songs Dosti and Disco Deewane, which were sung by late Nazia Hassan along with Zoheb in the early 80s, will play on the closing ceremony of PSL 4 in Karachi.
“I am pleased to offer our song Dosti to @thepslt20. It will feature along with Disco Deewane as a special Tribute to my (late) sister Nazia Hassan at the HBLPSL Closing Ceremony in Karachi,” he tweeted.

Earlier on February 14, Zoheb lashed out at the management of PSL when Aima Baig and Shuja Haider performed Disco Deewane, which is originally composed by Zoheb Hassan, without prior permission.
The singer took to Twitter the next day and condemned the violation of intellectual property.
I was shocked to see that a reputable platform like PSL used our track Disco Dewane without our prior permission. Outright infringement of intellectual property should be condemned and I am going to take a legal stand on this one ! https://t.co/4WA9roWNmE

We hope to see a beautiful rendition of both the songs, though it would have been a delight to see Zoheb perform the tracks live.
