Pakistan and China have had a bromance going on for a while now. However, when a Chinese singer created a cover of Buhey Baariyan, desi Twitter melted into a puddle.
As usual, this year on Pakistan’s diamond jubilee, the Chinese embassy in Islamabad organized festivities of its own. This included a Beijing music teacher, Ms. Vicky singing a cover of Hadiqa Kiani’s Punjabi hit song Buhey Baariyan.
The performance was part of the Pakistan Food and Cultural Festival organized by Embassy to mark Pakistan’s 75th Independence Day. The event was held at Pakistan Embassy College.
Ms. Vicky even went the extra mile and wore a beautiful shalwar kameez as well.

Everyone is impressed with the songstress singing the song so perfectly when she doesn’t know the language. They said that she’s embracing the language.
Vow she sings so well and her diction is very good

People even appreciated her wearing a beautiful Pakistani dress and embracing the culture so well.
Over the course of my 12 years in Beijing, Pakistan Embassy Team has done an outstanding job on Independence Day. It's a great job, Team Pakistan Embassy Beijing.
