The famous musician/singer and the front man of drum jam band ‘’Overload’’ Farhad Humayoun passed away on Tuesday. The news of his death was announced on the artist’s Facebook official page.
‘’The magnificent Farhad Humayun & Overload 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. 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,’’ post read.
The status further added, ‘’ 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 revealed yet by the social circle or the family. However, it was revealed by the musician himself that he had undergone a brain surgery in 2018.
The magnificent maestro of art joined the industry as an underground musician. He later formed the band ‘’Overload’’ in 2003. Also, apart playing drums for former bands such as Co-Ven and Mindriot, Farhad was also a singer and music composer.
Many artists and musicians from the Pakistan Music industry are entitling the demise of the singer as a big loss of music fraternity.

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.
