Meet Abdullah Qureshi
Abdullah Qureshi is a self-taught singer/musician based out of Islamabad. After watching the Coke Studio rendition of AfreenAfreen, he decided to upload his own cover and pay tribute to the real King Khan (sorry Shahrukh).
A humble message from Abdullah, “No comparisons please. Khan Saab will always be the King!”
But people are always entitled to their opinions
Sorry Coke Studio but Abdullah Qureshi's cover of Afreen Afreen is way better than that of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Momina Mustehsan

Could we possibly see Abdullah on Coke Studio next season?
Random fact: Abdullah’s apparently very specific about his burgers. The kind you eat, we couldn’t really get a word about the other kind.
In case you haven’t heard the Coke Studio version of Afreen Afreen that Abdullah (and many others) weren’t completely satisfied with, here it is for you to decide.
Oh and of course, here’s the original from the Ustad himself.
So, what are your thoughts?
