    Muhammad Asif aka DJ Butt, an entertainer whose beats punctuated political rhetoric at the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) sit-in in Islamabad last year, claimed on Monday that the party owes him Rs60 million.

    “My total payment for playing music at the PTI sit-in was Rs110 million but I have only been paid Rs50 million so far,” DJ Butt said, while speaking to Express News.

    “I will go to court if my payment is withheld,” he said, adding the party still owes him Rs50 million.

    Further, Butt, who has been working with PTI since 2010, said, “My daily pay was Rs0.6 million.” PTI leader Naeemul Haque said the party is settling Butt’s dues and will resolve the matter soon.

    The matter will be settled, it could be just that the party don't have that much money lying around.

    Also do you really believe that he would have earned that much money if he was not covering Dharna,

    I still dont believe the figure, I think one additional zero has been added. Also the statement shown above is disgrace to accounting profession. I don't have time to explain the dr and cr entries shown above. Atleast DJ should have hired an accountant.

    ISLAMABAD: While the ongoing sit-in of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) is thinning out by the day, DJ Asif Butt is as enthused as ever, even refusing to charge PTI for his services.

    Butt’s talent and prowess for bringing crowds to fever pitch deserves appreciation; he is the one making calls for when to punctuate Chairman Imran Khan’s speeches with bursts of music.

    “As a sound engineer, I was charging Rs35,000 per day until August 30. Since the clashes between police and PTI and Pakistan Awaami Tehreek workers, I refused to charge PTI anymore,” said Butt.

    “Do you know why? It is because I am now part of the sit-in like any other supporter,” he declared.

    DJ Butt no longer charges party management for sound services at the PTI sit-in
    He explained that it is his association with PTI that shot him to fame and because of this he does not want to charge PTI for his services.

    “I don’t mind working without any payment for PTI for the rest of my life but will of course charge other parties,” he quipped.

    The sound equipment being used has also become less elaborate over time.

    The show at the Constitution Avenue required 22 speakers, eight lights and six screens but now only eight speakers and eight lights are used.

    DJ Butt clarified that while he is not being paid for his services, the PTI management is continuing to pay his staff.

    “In the beginning, we needed 150 workers to operate the sound, generators, helpers, technicians and drivers but now the number has come down to 10,” he said.

    He explained that the reduction in the amount of equipment and number of workers has automatically brought the cost down.
