Shaheen wrote this song a year back when he was frustrated with his 9 to 5 work life. According to Qaumi Coup “This song is dedicated to all those who work hard and grind it out for a better future. To the 9-5 works, to the people cleaning our streets, to anyone trying to hustle, to anyone trying to make a living, to the struggles they face and the labor they put, this song is for them.”
Talking about the response on the music video which went viral, the rapper said “We were lucky to have people from the comedy, filmmakers and content creators community on board for this project who supported me to make this video and the response has been pretty good so far.”
“We want our content to get noticed not only in Pakistan but also on international level,” he added.
On stand up comedy, he said that it’s the responsibility of a stand-up comedian to ‘speak truth to power’ and not make fun of women or those who are ‘inferior to you’.
