PSL has started and right from the beginning, controversies have started. The new take is by none other than the famous singer Zohaib Hassan, and he is adamant to take legal action against PSL for using his deceased sister’s hit number Disco Dewane at the opening ceremony without his consent.
He was in a shocking state when he said he could not believe that such a reputed and international platform would do such a thing.
They included the song which was sung by his deceased sister Nazia Hassan. He also said that he will be taking legal action against it. He was adamant that he will make an example out of it. He said that his sister was a kind-hearted person, but even she would not have liked the situation and demanded clarification.
"I was shocked to see that a reputable platform like PSL used our track Disco Dewane without our prior permission….
He further added in another interview that the intellectual property belonged to his sister who is not among us and that her property copyrights should be respected. Even across the border.
He is willing to take legal action because he wants the fellow workers to understand the seriousness of the issue and that their work should be respected and acknowledge everywhere.
PSL underway on Friday and after an extravagant opening ceremony in which renowned singer of Pakistan Aima Baig performed on the song Disco Dewane.
Although the matter is now openly on the media and he has already talked to the organizers of Pakistan Super League as well, but they have not issued any statement yet. They are yet to give a clarification on the matter.
