Sibti & Spoonful – Badnaam

January 3, 2014

Artist:

Sibti & Spoonful

Song:

Badnaam

When the forces of the north wind rose high across the peaks, the lone traveler Sibti, found respite and long term refuge in the grasslands of the Spoons.. It was a kind of magical beginnings and that resulted in their first earth shaking endeavour they ever endeavoured. It was then that they knew that they had created a creation of gargantuan proportions. What resulted was, later for the ages, known to be the greatest musical alliance to have ever been aligned together forevermore.

Here’s How We Got Hacked: Thanks to Warid Telecom

April 17, 2013

303043_10150764865985134_6185086_nIn the last two weeks, dozens of high-profile Pakistan-targeted Facebook pages have been hacked, courtesy of Warid Telecom. We have not only lost a dozen pages in general, but also some business pages including KoolMuzone’s Facebook page with nearly 60,000 likes. Not only are we facing financial losses, our brand is being destroyed over the Facebook. For all those who’re wondering how could Warid be responsible for this? Well, here’s how.

Our Facebook Page Is Hacked (Again)

April 15, 2013

hkdEver-since we started this blog, we have had a rather bumpy ride in all possible ways. Mostly because this is a Pakistan-targeted website and unfortunately, these are all the by-products of being part of this market.

Our Facebook Page has been taken over again on 11th of April, 2013 around 6 PM in the evening. If you’ve been reading us for long enough, you probably already know this isn’t the first time. We will do a detailed story on this soon but for now all I want you guys to know is that we are not doing those lame updates on the page. We still do not have access to that page.

We Are Now Just a Bit More Pakistani

January 28, 2012

Since the beginning, KoolMuzone has always been about Pakistaniat. We started this blog to change what we thought was wrong with Pakistani music outlets. Our purpose always has been to serve Pakistani content and to provide Pakistani musicians with a platform for them to get heard.

It has been a very eventful journey for us since during the past three years many a times we have been a target of various hacking and malware attempts, due to which we have faced quite a lot of problems.

In an effort to eradicate all the problems associated with our last domain name, we had to change our domain name and what could be better than making this platform a bit more Pakistani for all of us, hence we have moved on to a .PK TLD

Our Facebook Page is Back and This is What Happened

March 29, 2011

If you’re a regular KoolMuzone reader you probably already know Facebook had disabled our page for over a month. Today, we have been able to bring it back and would like to share what exactly happened to our page.

The page went down on 27th of February on a “Trademark infringement” report. Samantha Kumar, the reporting party, claimed to own 8 music shops by the name of “Kool Muzone”. Not just that, she also claimed to own the trademark, not only in US but also in UK, Australia and India. We checked with trademark departments of all the mentioned countries and all the claims were false.

We Would Like to Thank Pepsi Cricket Fantasy

March 22, 2011

If you’re reading this, you probably already know that we have been sponsored by Pepsi for the month of February and March. Our sponsors help us pay our rents and continue serving content to you. As a token of appreciation we would like to share few details about Pepsi Cricket Campaign. Why should you care? Because it can help you win 500,000 Rs Cash and other prizes.

The World Cup is just getting more exciting and so is Pepsi’s Cricket Fantasy. Started at the start of the world cup, giving the Pakistani public a chance to put their cricketing knowledge to the test and a chance to win the grand prize of Rs. 500,000, the fantasy league just heated up!

Our New Temporary Home on Facebook (Hope So!)

March 1, 2011

So our page was compromised, hacked and deleted. A loss, that’s going to hurt us till eternity! We are putting as much efforts as we can to restore what we have just lost but it may take a while (if we may actually recover). The Facebook support hasn’t been very welcoming but we are going every way we can to fix this up. Meanwhile, we have a new little home on Facebook which we are assuming is a temporary one and we hope it to be this way. Meanwhile, please join us and spread the word. You guys make us what we are!

Update: The new page gets the same.

Where Did We Go? A Message For Our Facebook Fans

February 27, 2011

I’ve been getting a lot of emails since last night about what happened to our Facebook fan page since it’s unavailable to the fans which were around 33,600 till last night. Since day one, we have chosen our fan page to be the tool where we connect with our visitors. That has been the place where we interact with them, get feedback, break news and what not but yes, unfortunately, it’s gone.

“Third party” has reported our page to the Facebook as the page was infringing their intellectual property. Facebook takes down the page, without verification of any intellectual copy being infringed, deletes the page and notifies us with the following message.
