Ace guitarist, Anwar Faraz created a little controversy earlier on Sunday when he announced his decision to sell solos on Fiverr – an online marketplace for freelancers.

Given his reputation as one of Pakistan’s finest guitarists, some of his fans were worried and upset that a guitarist of his caliber had to publish an ad on a marketplace for freelancers.

Anwar had offered to perform professional solos for just one hundred dollars each (approximately ₨16,000 nowadays).

Influencer Junaid Akram was among the first to express his sympathy, and then other people followed. Many fans lamented that an artist fell so low to the point where he had no choice but to publish an ad on a freelancing website. In contrast, others attacked the general Pakistani mindset towards music and artists. One such user even said, “Pakistan is a graveyard for artists.”

Responding to the allegations, the Ujaalon Mein singer said that he is comfortable in earning through freelance. Anwar relies on various sources of income, including giving online guitar lessons. He added that people needed to stop sympathizing with him, remarking, “I received sympathy like I was dead.”

On the claim that he is charging such a low price, Anwar had to explain that this is only the standard package, and the premium packages have not been revealed yet. Anwar went on to say people lacked awareness regarding music and its artists, in general. He recalled an event a few years back when NADRA officials did not even have “musician” as a profession in their official documents.

    The same people who will always download free songs from internet but never purchase.

    Our media industry is not developed, a lot of artists abroad are used for commercial purposes. e.g. a company would hire a musician just to record custom navigation sounds for app or games etc.
