Fantasy, glamour, and romance have always remained the easier way to capture the attention of the audience. But somehow, opportunists have been over doing the stuff, and most of the time it has been transformed into ‘Vulgarity.’ Bilal Saeed, a local singer, seems more like convinced with the vulgar way.
His video song ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ which he uploaded on YouTube gathered a quick audience not because he introduced something new, but, he applied the same old formula which is always used in Bollywood and Lollywood. Make some ladies dance in semi nude dress behind your funny performance and gather as many ‘EYEBALLS’ as possible.
His new song has all the ingredients that are required to make something go viral; ordinary lyrics, lack of theme and dancing girls.
He claims to have scored 5 million views in 5 days which can also be seen on his channel but at what cost? Many of his fans are calling it a rubbish effort.
Bilal Saeed is a popular singer among youngsters having a large pool of fans. He is a Pakistani singer-songwriter, music producer and music composer. Since the beginning of his career in 2011, Bilal has earned awards and nominations in Pakistan, India and United Kingdom. He is the only Pakistani to have been nominated for PTC Punjabi Music Awards and Brit Asia Awards.
In case you couldn’t see it, here are some glimpses of his video:
And this is what his fans said;
And then I came across this:
Bilal did you really need this worst attempt to get some publicity???
He is not the one, we have seen various others semi-famous celebrities falling into the trap for earning what they wish for.
But wait a minute, is it the only way to score some million views? Bilal, if you are not familiar, let me recall you about the Gangnam Style song that broke the internet and the YouTube as well.
PSY the Korean artist produced this single, and in just five months after the release in July 2012, the song had been viewed by over a billion people on the video sharing site.
Despite being produced by a non-Muslim, the video didn’t have any vulgar scene.
Gangnam, no doubt is full of glamour, and a party stuff is fun to watch even with your family. But Bilal Saeed’s song !!! never think of it watching with your family or else !!!
Then there is another example of getting millions of views the way Tahir Shah did. Although, he didn’t get the love vote of many millions, but a bad publicity was even good for him.
Another question!! Ever saw Atif Aslam, Rahat Fateh Ali, Ali Azmat or any other using such a publicity stunt? Please correct me if I am wrong…
So, dear Bilal Saeed, please do something creative that we should all be proud of.
