Sonu Nigam has established a name for himself in the music industry. Currently, he is not happy with the Bollywood music scene. As of now, Sonu has passed almost two decades in the industry and also called out for the issues with the status of singers and quality of music. The singer has proved himself everywhere in the field of music.
Recently, at the Agenda Aaj Tak summit, he took a sly dig at the popularity of Pakistani singers in India. He quoted, “Sometimes, I feel as if it would have been better if I were from Pakistan. At least I would get offers from India. He went ahead on comparing the treatment given to Indian and Pakistani singers, claiming that the formers are being forced to pay them to perform at shows.”
He claimed, “Nowadays, singers have to pay music companies for shows. If we don’t shell out the money, they will play songs sung by other singers and highlight them. Then, they will take money from them.”
He revealed about the things that are different with Pakistani singers. He said, “Why to single out Indian singers. They don’t do the same with Pakistani singers. Atif Aslam is a very close friend of mine. He is never asked to pay to sing at shows, neither is Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.”
He also told that the increasing number of remixes is one of the main reason behind this. He feels that earlier composers, lyricists, and singers created a song. Now music companies have taken over that job.
Last year also, Nigam had ignited a nationwide debate after asking for not to use loudspeakers at religious places. This debate made him earn a lot of mixed reactions on Twitter to such an extent that he had to quit Twitter as well.
