Yes! The little birdie told us that Aima Baig will be performing the National Anthem at HBL PSL8. The eighth iteration of the HBL PSL is set to commence on Monday, February 13. Set for the date is a highly-anticipated opener between 2021 champions Lahore Qalandars and runner-ups Multan Sultan at the picturesque Multan Cricket Stadium. It’s that time of the year when the nation bands together to welcome the Pakistan Super League, stated a press release. So, keep your fingers crossed, Aima Baig will perform at PSL8.
Before the toss, however, fans in attendance and at home watching will be treated to a live performance of the official PSL 8 anthem from a star-studded line-up comprising the likes of Shae Gill, Faris Shafi, Asim Azhar, and Abdullah Siddiqui. Will Aima Baig perform the national anthem at PSL8 alone or not that will be a mystery till we see the ceremony.
The “Na Cher Malangaan Nu” hitmaker has lent her voice to official PSL anthems in the past. Although Aima not being a part of the official PSL anthem this year may come off as a disappointment to her fans, the singer is honoured and humbled to be lending her voice to the glorious National Anthem, a task not many are willing to commit to given the extreme pressure that comes with it. Will Aima Baig performance at PSL8 be liked by the audience of not is another mystery and for that we will have to wait. But till then we are excited for the news.
“Signing our beloved National Anthem on a massive platform such as PSL is both humbling and challenging; the latter in the sense that you are surrounded by thousands of fans in the stadium and watched by millions of users on screen – and everybody is super attentive because it’s the National Anthem. That is a whole different pressure, and I can’t imagine messing it up,” said Aima in a statement.
