Farhad Humayun, the founder and drummer of the iconic Pakistani band Overload, passed away on Tuesday. The news was announced by the band’s official Facebook 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,” read the post.


“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 his death was not revealed, but in 2018, the musician was diagnosed with a brain tumor that was being operated on by the “world’s greatest surgeon”.



Fans are grieving over the musician’s death. Pakistani actor Ahmad Ali Butt also shared a heartfelt note for his friend and wrote,

“You will always shine on like a crazy diamond my friend and your work will live forever. Thank you for your kindness, your friendship and your inspiration my brother. Allah bless your soul Ameen.”
