ISLAMABAD: The lead singer and founder of Pakistani band Overload, has passed away early on Tuesday.
The news of his demise was announced by Overload’s Facebook page.

“He would want us to celebrate his life, so we request his family, friends, and fans to honor him and say a prayer for him today. We can almost hear him say these words by David Bowie: “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring”. Godspeed our gentle giant and thank you for creating a Riot.”
