Singer Wahab Bugti, who shot to fame for his Coke Studio hit ‘Kana Yaari’, has had to leave his village of Goth Muhammad Umar in Dera Bugti due to torrential rain that has wreaked havoc in the province and left his village inundated. According to the CM Secretariat, Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Qadoos Bizenjo has issued instructions to help Bugti.

A senior officer at the CM’s secretariat confirmed to Images that his documents are being prepared and that the CM had ordered special assistance to be provided to Bugti.

The singer and his family has shifted to Dera Murad Jamali, where his friend lives. He has eight children.

Balochistan has suffered a lot due to heavy rain and floods that have inundated several villages and claimed approximately 225 lives and damaged over 26,000 homes, according to PDMA Balochistan. The full extent of the devastation is still unknown.

Bugti is a resident of Goth Muhammad Umar which is located approximately three kilometres from Dera Murad Jamali. The singer told Images that several houses collapsed in his area, which is why he reached out to a friend and relocated to Dera Murad Jamali. He added that only if things go back to normal will he be able to return to his home.

On Wednesday photos emerged online of the singer, his family and other villagers being rescued by the Pakistan Army. However, details of the rescue have not been shared by the military’s media wing.

Bugti, 36, shot to fame through Coke Studio this year alongside Kaifi Khalil and rapper Eva B. Coke Studio producer Xulfi tweeted on Monday and said Coke Studio was providing him assistance.

The singer’s predicament was highlighted on social media by netizens and his colleagues. Photos showed Bugti and his family standing amid debris after the floods.

Khalil and activist Muniba Mazari also took to social media to share the news and ways to help the singer.

Every one should get that amazing fame to be considered worthy for rescue? And it begs a second question after such a fame, did he not get enough renumerations to manage himself and clan ?

Chief Minister is billionaire - he should help instead of requesting government which is financially struggling itself.

Lucky that he's somewhat known. If he wasn't, he'd probably wouldn't even be noticed until he was begging for his loved ones bodies to be returned from the rivers.

One way govt. can him this singer is by doing torture to him which will make him famous overseas. Just like Shahbaz Gill and Jameel Farooqi.

I hope that other Pakistanis in need, are also given that level of attention, just because they don't have fame doesn't mean to be deprived of help and rescue.
