Social media sensation Waqar Zaka set another example of inspiration and modesty.
Waqar was offered an award for the ‘Pakistan social media icon’ at Pakistan International Screen Awards (PISA 2020) that happened in Dubai.
However, he refused to receive the award. Instead, he devoted his award to the Pakistan industry.
This was the first time in the entertainment industry in Pakistan that social media influencers, bloggers, YouTubers, and vloggers were invited at such a great stars’ gathering. Social media artists were seen sitting with popular Pakistani stars during the show.
Credit goes to Waqar Zaka, who was part of PISA jury. So, he refused to take award. Waqar Zaka, being jury, also make category for social media for PISA awards. Starting career as dare devil from a program on aired from a private channel in 2008, he still has highest views on YouTube. He is currently hosting another show Champions on BOL Entertainment and has set the recording of most watching show on YouTube.
This is a highly appreciating aspect, as this concept was not even noticed in international award ceremonies.
Waqar Zaka posted his picture on Facebook. He wrote the caption, “Proud to start social media Awards, despite my differences with social media artists, I made the nominations & as leading jury member, eliminated myself from nominations, otherwise, it was very easy for me to nominate myself or create a special award for Waqar Zaka – remember Jury member should not be nominated.”
Waqar Zaka also shared his opinion regarding the award given to a YouTuber. He explained that he recommended separate categories for different social media forums. But the organizers created an overall category for this. He also clarified that the winner was given the honor as per the viewers’ choice.
Waqar’s critics over renowned celebrities
Although the event was said to be a masterpiece for the entertainment industry, it too faced certain mishaps. Several celebrities were trolled as they reached Dubai in a private jet.
Waqar Zaka spoke over this matter. He said that all the celebrities were highly sponsored. Several stars who refused to come before agreed to go to Dubai just before the event. Faisal Khan, the organizer of PISA 2020, arranged private jet for these stars to let them arrive. The entire investment was made by Faysal.
Wakar Zaka not just only related to shows but also highlights the social issues on internet. The best use of internet as an influencer starts from waqar. We use social media for various purposes such as entertainment and influencing. However, this legend made the best use of them as he raised his voice for human rights, injustice, crime and brutalities.
