Sonu Nigam has opened Pandora’s box with his latest video blog. Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide, Sonu too shared a lot about the happenings in the music industry.
In a video captioned, “You might soon hear about suicides in the music industry”, in which he called out the “mafias” of the music industry, two of them in particular, without taking names. “Sushant Singh Rajput died, an actor died. Tomorrow, you can hear the same about a singer, or a composer, or a lyrics writer. Because the music scenario in our country… there are bigger ‘mafias’ here that in the film industry, unfortunately,” said Mr Nigam. “The power rests in the hands of two of them… just two from the music industry. They own companies. They have the power to make someone sing or not sing,” he added.
So who are the two companies he is referring to? Well, fans speculated probable names in the comment section.
“Everybody wants to ‘rule’ the business. Don’t do this! This is not right, you will be questioned”, “Be a little kind please, to the newcomers. It’s very difficult for the new kids, very difficult… I speak to every one of them. They are troubled that the producer wants to work with them, the director wants to work, even the music composer wants to work with them but the music company will say: ‘This is not our artiste’,” he added.
Sonu also spoke about an actor in news (could it be Salman Khan?) and said, ”He’s done that with Arijit Singh.”
