Overload’s frontman Farhad Humayun passed away on Tuesday, the band announced on social media. Taking to the Facebook page, a post read, “The magnificent Farhad Humayun left us for the stars this morning. Stoic in the face of challenges, uncompromising in his values, generous to a fault, witty as hell! Fadi was far too ahead of his time, both in spirit and art.”
The post further read, “He would want us to celebrate his life, so we request his family, friends and fans to honour him and say a prayer for him today.”
“We can almost hear him say these words by David Bowie: “I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring”. Godspeed our gentle giant and thank you for creating a riot!” the post concluded.
Soon after the news broke out, Overload’s former lead vocalist Meesha Shafi took to social media and paid tribute to the late musician.
“RIP Fadi,’ the Coke Studio singer tweeted, adding, “Thinking only of the good times we shared. My career in music began with Overload. We were at loggerheads at times but made some undeniably good music on the way. This is just one of those brilliant songs. Sharing this in your memory.”
