Strains between singer Zoheb Hassan and Pakistan Super League (PSL) have evidently subsided as the the singer has offered his late sister Nazia  Hassan Hassan’s track ‘Dosti’ to the tournament with his full consent.

The 52-year-old pop singer turned to Twitter to publicize his decision of giving the rights of his song ‘Dosti’ which he performed with his sister Pakistan’s iconic musician Nazia Hassan, adding that his late sister will also be paid accolades in the tournament’s closing ceremony.

“I am pleased to offer our song Dosti to PSL. It will feature along with Disco Deewane as a special Tribute to my (late) sister Nazia Hassan at the PSL Closing Ceremony in Karachi,” read the tweet.

Earlier the singer had slammed PSL for using his and Nazia’s track ‘Disco Deewane’ for the opening ceremony of its fourth season in the voice of Aima Baig, without his authorization.

“I was shocked to see that a reputable platform like PSL used our track Disco Deewane without our prior permission. Outright infringement of intellectual property should be condemned and I am going to take a legal stand on this one !”, he had stated.
