Massive rains caused widespread destruction in Balochistan that has killed people, razing their housing and sweeping away their lifelong valuables.  Abdul Wahab Bugti, who rose to fame after his performance in Coke Studio’s hit song Kana Yaari, and his family are among the victims. He and his family are waiting for government help after floods swept away his mud-house and earnings.

In the latest update, Bugti has now migrated from his village to the city of Dera Murad Jamali. Wahab and his family are safe now and he is incredibly grateful to all those sending in financial aid.

He also shared, "Xulfi and my peers from Coke Studio got in touch with me right after my brothers uploaded the photos of our displacement on social media. This was a day back, and since then their [CS] team has shown immense support."

Bugti’s situation became known when a social media user on Twitter detailed the grave conditions the singer and his family have been living in after being impacted by the natural disaster.

“Wahab Bugti, who got famous after singing Kana Yaari at Coke Studio, has been living in dire conditions due to the floods in Balochistan. His mud house was destroyed and his family has been living without a home,” the tweet read, alongside photographs of Bugti and his family standing amongst the rubble left behind by the flooding.   

The Balochi pop song garnered compliments and love amongst the audience. Sung by the up-and-coming hijabi rapper Eva B, the track also starred Kaifi Khalil as the lead vocalist and Abdul Wahab Bugti playing the Tambura. 

Heart-wrenching images circulating on social media clearly paint the misery; Bugti is passing through as his family members can be seen taking shelter under a charpoy, with no food.
