Singer Aima Baig has accused the organisers of Pak Fest, a music festival in Lahore, of using her name to promote their event but not paying her. That’s why, she says, she did not perform at the music event that took place from March 10 to 12 in Lahore. The event’s organisers have not publicly responded to her claim nor have they responded to Images’ request for a comment.
On Sunday, Baig posted on Instagram, claiming that the organisers failed to pay her. “I’m writing this note to express my disappoint[ment] here regarding using my name for ticket selling after non payment of my services,” she wrote.
The event was held at the Khayaban-e-Amin Cricket Stadium in the city. This was the second year the event was being held.
Despite the organisers’ failure to pay, they continued to promote their event with Baig’s picture on the tickets, she claimed. “I regret to participate in Pak Fest Lahore and instead of removing my name from the participation, the organisers were making money [using] my name. They were [misleading] people and fans who were buying my tickets to the concert. We have not received any communication or explanation from the Pak Fest Lahore’s end, which has cost undue stress and inconvenience to me,” she wrote.
She felt upset for her fans who bought tickets to see her. “I’m very disappointed due to this non-professional behaviour and [defamation], as people who love and watch my concert[s] bought the ticket[s] and I didn’t join due to payment issue,” she said.
The singer stressed that action must be taken by the organisers to make amends. She also shared a picture of the ticket with her face alongside performing artists.
