Nescafe Basement started off low-key despite having a popular brand name attached to the music show. The platform grew bigger and better over time, marking its excellence by completing its 4th season.
It’s not surprising how branded music shows such as Nescafe Basement have become the safe haven for Pakistan’s music industry ever since artists underwent isolation due to lack of talent endorsement. With every jam at the basement, rises a new star, which is the best part about the show.
Nescafe’s latest season significantly rose its bar by giving us a variety of talented musicians and cover songs along with nostalgic vibes.
The songs listed are the most cherished and popular episodes of Nescafe Basement.
1. Kameez Teri Kaali
Kameez teri kali is formerly sung by Attaullah Khan. Mehak Ali ft. Farhan Ali on bass covered the song beautifully; the song is produced by Xulfi.
