Dear lovely fans,
There were lot of controversies and rumors were spreading about jaL breaking up, so here I am to tell you. Officially what happened with jaL and will tell about some people who tried to spoil it and start it by creating some rumors about me. U have seen many cases of bands breaking up, but I am sure the whole music industry have never seen such a band who had only one song released and they break up. I want to tell u the truth and the reason behind it that why I kick Atif out of band and what was the reasons that forced me to do that.
As ppl from PICS know since when I have been singing Aadat without even the existence of Atif. So no point in proving anything else.. J
That was August 15th
2003 when we "JAL" had a contract offer with the biggest
cellular company of Pakistan and Fakher-Alam was the consultant for
that concerning company and they want to meet us immediately in Islamabad
for the contract terms and conditions. That day Atif came to me and
said that we should have a manager who can talk about this and he said
that my brother I is the manager of jaL from now to represent us. I
frankly agreed with Atif and thought that he is Atif's brother
and doing that for the sake of the band . so I agreed and I , Atif and
his brother Shahbaz Aslam went to meet them and that is the way this
manager entered in the band but I had no idea that what's his
intentions were.! After a month, we got some offers for concerts, and
I personally refer people to talk with shahbaz Aslam. With only one
song , his brother has started claiming 80000 per concert. ( I think
many people who are reading this post are witnesses for that). Some
organizer talked to me again and said that are you people r in senses
??/ I mean after one song you people have gone mad and start thinking
that you are a super star and bla bla.. so I told Atif once to talk
to your brother and tell him that day will come when we will charge
more then 80,000 and warned him that don't claim this money again
and start with some decent amount because at the start of jal, we need
some exposure instead of money.. he said, " BACHAY MUGHAY CALL
KERTAY HEIN TOE I M SAYING THIS TO REFUSE THEM"… but then
again he told the same amount to the people that jal will charge 80,000
and said me that people will agree on it . but in result we have lost
6 concerts in from the month of September to the start of November.
Shahbaz didn't show me any contract he was doing on behalf of
Jal. After some days I saw one of the contracts and guess what? He mentioned
that Shahbaz Aslam ( Atif's brother) is the band member of jaL,
( I will show u the photo copy of that contract on internet ). I talked
to Shahbz and asked him that why u mention your name in in the contract
as band member and asked him that are you going to play drums. Guitar,
bass guitar or will sing with your brother? , he replied I m just sort
of a band member for u , I will work with u people , I will design the
wardrobe for you people, I will direct your videos and will open a production
house ( with the name blue) and then I will open a boutique. And will
manage the band, and all the accounts of the band. he want to be a wanna
be and want to do it through the channel of jal, matlab , director+designer+band
member+band manager. And Atif has full l votes for his "BELOVED"
brother , then my brother had a meeting with Shahbaz Aslam and discuss
this thing and told him that this thing should be done by the professionals
that is Professional Managers for the betterment of the exposure of
jaL and u r watching field of interest through the band instead of making
plans to buy the instruments for the band. but he said that this is
my brother who is the vocalist in the band and Goher only writes and
plays guitar and composes for the band and my brother is much dominant
and Atif also said to me that u will not sing for the band and will
only play. (Hello.. I made the band Hello)..I think they were really
out of their minds. Anyways, I came up with a point and told Atif tha
I wil not work with your greedy brother. Either its ur brother Shahbaz
Aslam or me. And left his place. That was the time when the video of
Aadat was going to launch and that was the time of happiness for the
band because we already got success and appreciation from internet.
But on the other hand , his brother was planning that how to get rid
of Goher and how to promote his brother. In this process we got an offer
for a concert in Al-hamra which was organized on 24th of January. And
Atif called me at my place through a person and said that there is no
more Shahbaz Aslam between us and come back and lets do the concert.
I had a fight with my brother and I said to him that I want Goher who
made picked me from college and made Aadat a big hit. And he made a
condition that I will manage the Jal from now on. I said okie fine,
i thought that I should believe in him as he is also a good friend of
mine and if he is doing it for the sake of the band then I should also
come back and rejoin to continue the gigs , just for the sake of the
band, so I agreed with him and stared the jamz and he told me that we
are doing that concert in 20000 Rs.. I never knew that behind this scene,
Atif and his brother signed a deal with SADAF STEREO through Mekaal
Hassan , and when Mekaal and Salman Elbert ask that where is Goher,
then his brother replied that we were giving him some percentage and
he did'nt agree on it so he left the band. ( this statement of
Atif was being told to me by Mekaal Hasaan). but I had no idea whats
going on. In those days I got a call from Ahmed Zakaria ( Manager operation
ARY , THE MUSIK) for some performances for THE MUSIK channel and he
wanted that jal should be there on with with noori, Karvaan and Fuzon.on
the 22nd of January. I have talked to Atif about this and he asked me,
Goher have u sign any deal with ARY ?,, I replied him with a smile that
there is nothing like that , we are just going there for some Tv performances
and ARY is sending us the tickets for it they said. I will think over
it to go to ARY. And in that time we were doing our jamz for the concert
in Al-Hamra on 24th of January and were pretty prepared for the concert
, so I again asked to Atif to go with me to Ary and we should not miss
that big chance for Tv coverage. He agreed, but then at the last moment.
He said that I have an emergency so I m not going, ( just on the instruction
of his brother ) because he knows that Atif is vocalist and Goher cannot
go with out Atif,. I called Ahmed Zakaria and told him that Atif is
not coming, if u want me then I will come on the behalf of the band
and sing my two songs which I m singing in the album. Like Dilharay
and another song. Ahmed said , okey come here and perform two songs
as he told to everyone that Jal is coming and performing and this would
be highly non-professional thing that once u commit with a channel and
then refuse it at the last time. So I had to leave alone for Karachi
and told them I will come back on 23rd and will do the concert on 24th
in Alhamra,, here I will put an example about our Pakistani poilitics,
when chief. Of Army staff was out of country and mr. Newaz shareef made
a plan to remove him in the absense of pervaiz mussharaf and want the
control of his Air Plane. I think in my case Atif Aslam is mr. Newaz
shareef who wants everything and I had to rescue my self..
I went to ARY for recording. His brother who was calling ARY for 2 days and talking AS Atif, said that Goher came here without telling Atif, and u called the wrong person , and forcefully convinced them that Goher is a Secessionist in the band and Atif is the main guy of the band. (Hello .. I am the sessionist?) , when I went to Ary , I have now words what I have been through. They took the Airline tickets back and didn't let me perform on the show. I was really shocked at that time because I never expected that from Atif and his brother that they will do that to make me out form the band. Ahmed Zakaria and Umer Sheikh are the witnesses of this matter as it all happened in ARY office. I really appreciate ARY especially Umer Shiekh's wisdom & professionalism, the way he handled the matter. And When I called Atif form my cell and asked him what the hell are u doing by telling them that goher is a secessionist and I didn't tell u about the ARY function. Toe he replied. I have to go , my cell battery is quite low.
My dear fans, I have to came back from Karachi and I was really pissed off at that time and not in a mood to do the concert on 24rth but I had to do it for the sake of the band. but when I went to Al-hamra, Atif and his brother Shahbaz Aslam has already told the organizers that if Goher will come then kick him off form Al Hamra as he is no more the band member, I tried to tell him that its my band and showed him some legal paper that they cannot perform without me they all were shocked but ultimately t the organizers had to do the concert because they have sold all the tickets and one of the organizer shazil told me that we will continue the concert because we have paid 50000 to jal'manager i.e. Shahbaz Aslam. I was like but Atif told me that u paid them 20000 for that concert. They said. No we have paid his manager 50000 for the concert. And when I asked him that to whom u paid that money. Show me the man , then that man was again his brother Shahbaz Aslam who was managing Jal on his own after the saying of Atif to me that he is out form the Jal. Shahbaz came and said that kick him out and he is not in the band. Atif picked my two guitar students(HAIDER and OMER) who knows all my song chords which I have composed and they did that concert with him. I think I have never seen the selfishness like this and Atif used them because for the songs he don't have any other option other then haider and omer because we use to jam at the haider and omer's place, and atif and shahbaz didn't let them know the reality and made them believe that goher is out of the band so that haider and omer who knew the songs chords could play for him. Haider and Omer were being misguided throughout.
The only reason that I kicked Atif is just because his selfishness which he has showed and the dishonesty and greed of his brother and his plan to kick me out from my own band.. Sorry my friends, After a one song, u should not behave like Michael Jackson. Mm I think Michael Jackson must have some self respect for him and honesty, better than Atif and his brother..
I can say more, but due to legal grounds I cannot.. and as to tell u all, my lawyers who is handling this now is one of the best law firms in our country and they are making sure that ppl associated with Atif and his brother whoever it maybe will pay a big price for this act.. so wait and see J..
And to all the organizers out there, don't let atif promote jal as he cannot sing cover songs of jal.
From this day onward, all questions and queries regarding Jal will be asked and discussed by our OFFICIAL MANAGER "Khurram Bhai EP (Jilawatan)" so don't hesitate to contact him…
Love you all for the support ………
