For me she is not that. For me she is much more than that. For me she is someone exceptionally talented. For me she is a simple girl, who lived her life the simple way and has passion for music. She might continue to live that way because in a very recent interview she said that singing was not a profession to her, instead it was her passion.
We have had superstars that have been ‘larger than life’. They are all the same, no difference – and they keep on coming. I do not intend to disrespect them in any way, but if it is all the same then it becomes monotonous. I can give you an example, a simple one. Inaam Ghar was the first show to do what everyone is trying to do nowadays. That was original and unique and that is why people liked it a lot.
She is gorgeous, yes, but can we all go beyond that please? Can we as a nation stop obsessing over beauty and more importantly can we stop defining it in such narrow terms? Can we laud her talent over her looks, She debuted on Coke Studio and that was with the legendary Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Yes, she is that good to be chosen by Coke Studio for the cover of Afreen Afreen, originally sung by Ustaad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khaan Sahab – one of the greatest musicians of all time.
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Afreen Afreen is simply a masterpiece. The Coke Studio cover was brilliant as well. Rahat Fateh tried to emulate Nusrat Sahab as much as possible and he did justice to his part. Momina with those additional lyrics, was as good as any other singer could have been.
The shining star of the Pakistani music industry, Momina Mustehsan made her Coke Studio debut with the beautiful version of ‘Afreen Afreen’ together with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan this year. With her innocent looks and a melodious voice, the singer managed to charm the audiences with just one song.
Momina has finally made her Pakistani movie debut for the ‘Gul-e-Rana’ famed power couple Sajjal Ali and Feroze Khan in their upcoming romantic flick ‘Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai.’ The singer has sung the title track for the movie.
In her own words, Momina Mustehsan is a ‘part time singer and a full time boring engineer and mathematician’. It was during her elementary schooling in New York when she picked up the violin while sharpening her vocal talents in the school choir. As she set about recording covers and original tracks in the confines of her dorm room, her charming luck started getting approached for Bollywood songs and she made her debut with ‘Awari’ for ‘Aik Villain’ in 2014.
Currently enrolling for a Masters in Industrial Engineering, Momina Mustehsan will make her debut this year on Coke Studio, Season 9 whilst pursuing her dreams in a memorable performance.
In future the super talented young diva has some Pakistani projects in her hands which will be released at the end of this year hopefully. Momina Mustehsan expressed her passion for music and so many platforms and said she is excited about her upcoming project in Pakistan.
