How has been your journey?
As you are aware that the financial condition of my family was not good, my father had to work hard in order to afford medicines, look after the family. I learnt my musical skills by watching international artists on YouTube. All I can say today is that my journey has been a combination of hard work and fun. I love what I do. I am today performing before thousands of people and winning appreciation from the youth and the next generation. This is so exhilarating.
What is your new song Sharabi about?
These days drinking, smoking is in trend. Parties are incomplete without boozing but we are not aware how this addiction ruins our relationships. In song Sharabi, you learn how drinking kills your relationship with your loved one. It is promoted by Times Now.
How was your experience working with Times Now?
It was a brilliant experience working with Times Now, they have promoted my song SHARABI featuring RAUL (Rapper) to a new level and helped me increase my reach to fans on a larger scale.
With whom do you aspire to work with?
I would like to work with the international Hip hop R&B artists like Karl Wolf, Chris Brown, Drake, Lil Wayne, and record producers like Timbaland, Jay-Z, T-pain. If I talk about the Indian Music Industry I would surely love to do a few tracks with the well-known artist BOHEMIA and off course my inspiration AR Rehman.
Please name one of your favourite song?
I have made 15 videos and released more than 47 audio tracks on the Internet and more are on the anvil. My favorite song is SHARABI. All my songs narrate my life story but this song has a message for the public or the younger generation. Addiction to alcohol ends relationships.
As you mainly follow Hip hop and R&B genre in your songs but why there is always sadness in your songs?
My songs reflect the sadness and emptiness of my life. In 2009 my mother passed away, the love of my life my girlfriend also left me and this is the reason that my songs are emotional songs.
Being a Delhiite which is your favourite hangout spot?
I like to spend time in HauzKhas village. This is afavorite party spot where youth hang around in Delhi. It is here that I get exposure to youth and their lifestyle. They inspire me to write songs. Songs that have meaning and motivation for them.
Who is your competition in the industry?
I don’t have any competition and I never had one. I have a competition with myself to improve and improvise so that my next tracks sound better than my previous ones.
If you weren’t a singer what would you be?
If I wasn’t a singer, I would have chosen merchant navy as my career option.
What are your future projects?
I am recently working on my new album Black&White in which 10 songs are slated for release back to back. Kasoor, ek baar, aashiq hun are some of the few tracks from the album Black&White.
