So Strings just recently announced that they were parting ways with Coke Studio after producing four seasons of the show, and now reports of Noori filling in their shoes began to circulate. However it has been denied by Noori, and the cards are still on the table as to who will be producing the next season.
Although during the band’s tenure Coke Studio produced many hits, people were relieved that a change was on the horizon
I loved Strings as a band as much as I hated their stint at Coke Studio. A lot. https://t.co/SnUH7oygeE

Best news today? Strings have decided to free Coke Studio from their clutches. Hope CS can breathe and live once again.

People immediately began to speculate as to who was going to take the Coke Studio torch
So Strings has left as the producers of Coke Studio. Can see Sufisal getting that position from next season.

However, it was Noori’s name that kept popping up
Heard Noori (Hamza) will be one of the next Coke Studio producer.

And rumors of the band possibly filling the void spread like wildfire…
OMG IS NOORI GOING TO PRODUCE @cokestudio 11?????????

Noori producing the next season of Coke Studio, does this mean we have a chance to see Gumby back behind the drums?

The band have now denounced all these reports, much to the dismay of their fans
The band’s manager in a statement to the Express Tribune stated that “the rumors are false. Ali Noor and Ali Hamza are not involved in producing Coke Studio 11 as of yet.”
Thank God Noori is not producing. I would love to see Shuja Haider at helm of Coke Studio.
