Sonu posted a new IGTV today, which was captioned: “Laaton ke mafia baaton se nahi maante (you cannot reason with the uncouth mafia with words).”
The video has the singer discussing the recent accusations on him. The singer also discloses one of the names of the music-industry mafia he referred to in his posts earlier. The video witnesses Sonu Nigam talking in a rough hindi tone, “Bhushan Kumar, ab toh tera naam lena hi padega mujhe. Aur ab tu tu ke layak hai. Tune galat admi se panga le liya (Bhushan Kumar, now I have to mention your name. And now, you deserve being addressed and that too, without respect. You have messed with the wrong person here)”, says the singer.
“Tu bhul gaya woh time jab tu mere ghar pe aake… ‘bhai bhai meri album kar do. Bhai ‘Deewana’ kar do. Bhai, Smita Thackeray se milwa do, Bal Thackeray se milwa do. Abu Salem se bacha lo. Abu Salem galiyaan de raha hai’… yaad hai na? Yaad hai ki nahi yeh sab cheezein? Main tujhe keh raha hoon mere muh mat lagna ab tu bas. (Do you remember the time when you used to come to my home requesting me… ‘brother record an album for me. Brother, record Deewana for me. Brother, introduce me to Smita Thackeray and Bal Thackeray. Save me from Abu Salem. Abu Salem is abusing me’… do you remember? Don’t mess with me, I am warning you).” Sonu Nigam adds.
“Marina Cover yaad hai na? Woh kyon boli, woh kyon back out kiya yeh mujhe nahi pata. Media ko pata hai mafia kis tarah function karta hai. Uska video mere paas padha hai. Ab agar tune mere se panga liya, toh woh video main apni YouTube channel mein dal dunga. Samjha? Mere mooh mat lagna (Do you remember Marina Cover? I don’t know why they spoke and why they backed out, but the media knows how the mafia functions. I still have that video with me. Now if you mess with me, I will upload that video on my YouTube channel for the world to see. So don’t mess with me).”
The reaction Sonu Nigam addressed in this video, came after a video he posted on Instagram last week, where he had appealed to music companies, without taking names, to be a little kind towards new artistes entering the industry, saying otherwise more people will commit suicide. He had also mentioned in his previous video that currently two companies rule the music industry and referred to them as ‘Mafias’.
