Ali Noor and Acappella: Music meets Soul!
Ali Noor launched his own record label BIY (Believe in yourself) Music in 2005. The basic concept behind this venture was to promote original music. He wanted people to start writing their own lyrics and composing their own music. He dreams of creating new wave of musicians instead of one-time wonders with a few hit singles.
The idea of Strepsils Stereo came about when BIY Music and Ali Noor thought of launching Acappella in Pakistan. Strepsils was ready with its relevance of providing a clear voice and relief from sore throats.
