Qawwal Hamza Akram accuses corporates of neglecting artistes
Taking to Facebook, he penned a lengthy note and wrote, "Saare folk song covers, Qawwali covers, sufi song covers, pop singers se hi gawalo bhai (Sure, go ahead and get pop artistes to profit from renditions of folk and sufi songs)."
"Jo originally deserve krte hain, Jo tuner ko gaali samjhkar zindagi riyaaz mai guzaardete hain, unko sab bhool jao. (Go on and forget the artistes that actually deserve recognition, consider tuning an insult to their abilities and spend their entire life polishing their skills)," he added.
Akram believes that such artistes are only sidelined because they don't have a million fake followers on social media.
