Adnan Siddiqui, too, expressed his condolences. “Shook to know about the passing away of Farhad Humayun,” he said, adding, “A young, talented life snatched by the cruel hands of fate way too soon. Life is so fragile. May Allah grants him a higher place in Jannah. Ameen.”

Popular vlogger Mooroo shared his memories of the famed musician. “I grew up listening to overload, being inspired, electrified, and entranced by it. Farhad Humayun was my Pakistani musical hero through my teenage years. Sad to hear he passed away and suffered from cancer so. He will always be the king of the drums,” he wrote.
