Renowned singer Ali Haider flays Waqar Zaka for misusing Aamir Zaki’s demise

Acclaimed  singer Ali Haider rejected TV personality Waqar Zaka’s criticism of the artiste community following the death of legendary musician Aamir Zaki.

On Friday night when Zaki passed away, Waqar went to the Edhi morgue located in the Sohrab Goth area of Karachi where his body was kept. “Artists should visit this and they will come to know that how bitter was this situation.  An angry Waqar said in his live video on Facebook from the morgue, adding that the legendary artist was lying dead all alone with no one to take care of his body.

The reality show host has mentioned some famous singers like Ali Haider, Hadiqa Kiani and Ahmad Jahanzaib,who have worked with Aamir Zaki,that they have done nothing for legendary departed soul.

To give a proper reply to Waqar Zaka , famous singer Al Haider made a video statement in which he has given a brief response to Waqar Zaka’s arguments. Ali added that he is living in Newyork (USA ) from last two years. He has not visited Pakistan ,so he was not well aware about the health of Aamir Zaka. Whereas, Hadiqa lives in Lahore and she was also unaware about this tragic demise.

Ali concluded if I have  to do something for an ailed person, I will not tell people that I have helped financially. I will not make it public tool to get fame.

Brother of departed soul, Shahid Zaki told to Daily Aftab that his brother was suffering form heart disease. His health was decreasing day by day. Yesterday, he died due to hear failure.
