This artist needed a dummy guitar to help ease him into singing on Coke Studio 2020! Singer-songwriter Mehdi Maloof is just so used to playing his guitar whilst singing a song that when he was asked to sing his song in Rohail Hyatt’s house, the 2020 makeshift CS studio, he started singing, strumming along to an imaginary guitar in his hands. To help him feel more at ease, the production team gave the singer a dummy guitar to strum along to while performing.
When asked about the incident Maloof simply exclaimed, “But I’ve never really sung a song without a guitar, so I am not used to singing without it…” Since 2012, Mehdi Maloof has been gathering a cult following with this soulful lyrics and deeply existential songs!

Mehdi Maloof (Family Life)
Recently, things have taken a turn in Maloof’s life and he attributes all ‘liveliness’ to marriage!
Maloof got married to his long-time love Maham Peerzada on June 15, 2020 and very happily claimed that theirs was “a love marriage”. Maloof also revealed that he fondly refers to the love-of-his-life as “Mimi the-girl” whom he also credits as being his “muse”. All the while, “Mimi the-girl” giggles shyly in the background.
Describing their relationship, Maloof explained that apart from being the love of his life, “Mimi the-girl” is also his manager. “We knew each other as friends for a very long time, and then we fell in love and got married. Mimi and I share many interests including spirituality and philosophy; she has played a huge supporting role in my life, emotionally, creatively, and technically; she plays a very big role in my creative process. She is a photographer by profession and helps me shoot many of my videos too.”
“When I used to write songs earlier, there used to be a lot of pain in my lyrics. But now the songs I write have a lot more contentment – more peace of mind,” said Mehdi. And with support from Mimi the-girl, we have absolutely no doubt!
Maloof has been a part of the music scene since early 2012, when he sang 1947 for FM91, but has since propelled himself into fame by producing songs that immediately gathered a cult following. His musical journey has finally paid off, winning him a position in Coke Studio 2020’s line-up! Can’t wait to see what Mehdi and Mimi the-girl have in store for us; until then, we wish them the happiest married life!
