Sonu Nigam is one of the greatest singers Bollywood has ever produced. He is frequently compared favourably to famous vocalists like Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, and others. Despite having a number of hits and beautiful songs to his name, he is also one of the most polarising artists in the industry who is not afraid to cause a commotion. He does it all, from bashing reality shows like Indian Idol to condemning T-Series.
The artist is known for expressing his ideas in a somewhat rude and direct manner. He once gave other Bollywood singers bad reviews. Continue reading to learn more.
Sonu Nigam was open and honest about his thoughts on both his contemporaries and on himself as a performer when speaking with Faridoon Shahryar. On the Instagram feed Sonunigamscafe, a little video featuring the Dil Se singer judging other musicians’ singing abilities on a scale of one to ten was published. Atif Aslam and Arijit Singh each scored a 4, Benny Dayal a 4, and Arman Malik a 5.
The Oscar-winning composer’s hits included Saathiya, Ishq Bina (Taal), Satrangi Re (Dil Se), and more well-known songs. Rahman is perhaps admired more by Sonu Nigam as a composer than as a vocalist. He also awarded Mika Singh a score of 1, and we are astounded by his candour as a result.
After all was said and done, Sonu astonished many internet users by rating himself a 5 out of 10. While some individuals agreed with him, others thought his predictions were wholly false. They stated the following in the comments:
“He thinks Arijit is better than him?”
“He is very straight forward.. but he can’t rate himself as 5 😐”
“That strict teacher in every school😂”
“Mika singh ko 1 b ni dena tha😂”
“Hey sonu what’s colour of your oscar award??”
“Finally someone called it out, AR rehman is soo overated”
