Unfortunately for Ahmed, he became the subject of mockery and things took a sour turn as the humour went from silly memes to straight up bullying after hosting the opening ceremony of the Pakistan Super League 2020.

Ahmed was gutted when talking about the bashing he faced after the event on an exclusive interview.

Now, to dislike a performance is one thing, even joking about it works to some extent as memes on Twitter are often tolerable. But to be outright cruel and bash a person, is another level of hate. And according to Godil, he’s been facing alot of criticism since yesterday.

Godil revealed he was never meant to be the official host of the ceremony.

“I am a ground host. I’ve been one for the last two years (and been hosting several shows for the past five) and my job is to keep the audience engaged. I’m hosting all the Karachi matches. Like when there’s an out or a sixer, I get the audience to cheer. That is it.”

“We’ve been rehearsing for the past three days. The show was supposed to be 55 minutes max… But there were some delays, as there usually are. Plus, people were there from 4pm and the show was going to start after 6pm.”

“I am just a host. What was I supposed to do? Take my clothes off and dance? I’ve been a host for a long time. I’ve hosted shows for Atif Aslam in America. I’ve done this before, I didn’t just come out of nowhere. But what did I do so wrong?”

Facing the camera, he pleaded with the audience, “At least leave my mother and sisters out of this. Keep my family out of it.”

“What mistake did I make? I haven’t slept all night. For the past two days, we’d come home at 5am and then reach by 10am to continue work. Where did I go wrong? Did I misbehave on stage? Did I curse or swear at someone? What do you all want? I am so hurt.”
