Coke Studio is an international music franchise which features music performances by artists like Ali Sethi. It is the longest-running annual TV music show in Pakistan since 2008. When it comes to the folk songs our neighbor country can’t help but listen to some of the songs. Or who knows? Maybe all the songs of every season ever recorded in Coke Studio.
Ali Sethi is a Pakistani singer, musician, writer, and columnist. Ali Sethi really hit a jackpot when his song “Tinak Dhin” got its fame in India by Honey Singh. The pop singer praised Ali Sethi along with his other vocalists Ali Hamza and Waqar Ehsan. But Ali Sethi received a special mention by Honey Singh. He tweeted:
“What a fun song. All three of the vocalists are good but Ali Sethi is the best at 3:08-3:16.”
