Singer Sonu Nigam dropped a bombshell last week, alleging the existence of a “music mafia” in the country in a video. It later devolved into an attack on T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar. His wife, Divya Khosla Kumar, launched her own attack on Nigam, and is now receiving death and rape threats.
Singer Sonu Nigam dropped a bombshell last week, alleging in a video uploaded to Instagram, the existence of a “music mafia” in the country.
In the clip, the singer had said a couple of companies were making life hell for young artists. He had ended with calls for compassion and kindness.
Unfortunately in the ten or so days since, the video has led to anything but, with allegations and vitriol now being exchanged between both sides online.
A few days after his first video, Sonu Nigam specifically called out T-Series chairman Bhushan Kumar. In a video titled “laaton ke MAFIA baaton se nahi maante”, he said Kumar had once asked him for protection against Abu Salem, as well as to be introduced to the late Balasaheb Thackeray, and Subrata Roy.
