|Controversy||The song, 'Sammi Meri Waar,' that he sang with Qurat-ul-Ain-Balouch, popularly known as QB, in the Coke Studio Season 8 in 2015, brought his name to the trending section on social media. He also received hateful emails for the same. Umair in an interview said, “The reason why it all felt so out of place was maybe because I was moving like anything and QB stood still. There was a huge contrast there.” Rather than following the trend of posting a video or an apologetic post, Umair chose to share the parody videos and memes that made fun of his actions, which helped him improve his image among his fans.|
