The rumour mill was abuzz, hinting at a possible union between acclaimed Pakistani singer, famous for his hit “Pasoori”, Ali Sethi and NYC-based artist Salman Toor. Reports suggested a hush-hush wedding ceremony taking place in New York City.
However, clarity remained elusive as no additional insights were available, and neither Sethi nor Toor confirmed or refuted these claims. That was until Ali Sethi decided to set the record straight.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, amidst becoming a trending topic on Twitter, Sethi stated, “I’m not wedded. Not sure who began these whispers.” In his signature witty style, he added, “Perhaps they can aid in promoting my latest song?” Sethi then provided a link to his new tune, “Paniya”, with Noah Georgeson, now accessible on major music platforms. Fans can also look forward to his upcoming world tour, with performance dates in cities like Brooklyn, Dallas, and London already announced on his socials.
Salman Toor, a Pakistani-origin American artist born in 1983, is recognized for his portrayals of South Asian-born young men in intimate, often imagined settings spanning both South Asia and NYC. Residing in New York, Toor’s growing influence was stamped by his inclusion in the 2021 TIME100 Next list, spotlighting emerging leaders shaping tomorrow.
