Thinking only of the good times we shared.
My career in music began with Overload.
We were at loggerheads at times but made some undeniably good music on the way. This is just one of those brilliant songs. Sharing this in your memory.
Today I choose to celebrate your life even more than I ever have in the past. You are and always will be the only one of your kind. Gone too soon my dear friend. Rest in power till we meet again. #FarhadHumayun إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رٰجِعونَ pic.twitter.com/NzDbiXKzeS— Faysal Quraishi (@faysalquraishi) June 8, 2021
I grew up listening to overload, being inspired, electrified and entranced by it. Farhad humayun was my pakistani musical hero through my teenage years. Sad to hear he passed away and suffered with cancer so. He will always be the king of the drums. Allah maghfirat farmayein. pic.twitter.com/yUSPzxoqE5— Mooroo (@Mooroo4) June 8, 2021
