Good bye old friend. You were an inspiration for so many. Your contribution to music and in people’s lives cannot be defined in a few lines. You were more than a musician and a performer...you were a fighter... destined for greatness and great you were.

Farhad Humayun has passed away. I met him for the first time at the red carpet of an award show. He was nominated. I was a newcomer in the industry meeting an established artist. Will never forget it.
Thank you for the music Farhad.#farhadhumayun

Earlier today, famous musician, singer and the founder of the iconic Pakistani band Overload passed away.
The news was announced by the band's official Facebook page.
"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," read the post.
"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 cause of death has not been mentioned in the post but Farhad Humayun was reportedly battling brain tumour.
