Popular Pakistani rock band Strings, known for belting out hits songs like "Dhaani" and "Duur", have announced that they are ending their 33-year-long musical partnership. Strings was formed as a college band by four students - Bilal Maqsood, Faisal Kapadia, Rafiq Wazir and Kareem Bashir Bhoy in 1989.
The group took to social media on Thursday evening to announce their decision to disband, saying that the members will share an "inseparable bond".
"Hey guys. This post is a bit different from the usual. We have decided that today, 25/03/2021, is the day we graciously get to conclude Strings. The past 33 years have been incredible for both of us," it read.
The band thanked fans for showering love on them over the years.
"It's so rare to have the chance to be able to do things like this and we are infinitely grateful to all of our fans for making it possible. We hope you found it worthwhile as well.
"While the band technically may not be together anymore, both of us share an inseparable bond that will connect us no matter where life takes us. Thank you so much for everything," the farewell note read.
As soon as the post made it to Instagram, the fans were heartbroken. Fans across Pakistan and India took to social media to express how much they love the band and how much they will miss it.
