After three decades of nothing but love Strings announced it was splitting up and the country has been collectively jamming to Aakhri Alvida ever since.
In what was an extremely sudden announcement that no one saw coming, the band announced the move on social media. "We have decided that today, 25/03/2021, is the day we graciously get to conclude Strings," they announced, leaving Pakistan heartbroken.
Faisal Kapadia and Bilal Maqsood said that the split wasn't due to hard feelings. They said despite the split, they were extremely fond of each other and share an inseparable bond.
Fans took to social media to vent their grief at the news, shocked that one of Pakistan's most iconic bands would come to and end like this.
Celebrities were shattered
All of us getting goosebumps right about now
Some were reminiscing their favourite collaborations
While others were tearfully jamming to their favourite choruses
Some were in disbelief
While others were simply devastated
Our sadness was echoed across the border
Collectively hanging onto the memories
A big sad goodbye to our favourite duo
An iconic journey indeed
Why you gotta do that to us?
Brb, we're crying our eyes out right now.
