Music Industry: There is a bigger mafia, says Sonu Nigam

Sonu talks about the struggles of newcomers in the industry

Friday, 19th June 2020

Sushant Singh Rajput, the upcoming star’s suicide has shocked the country and has led to many debates and discussions on unequal treatment, partiality and bullying of newcomers in this ocean called film industry.


With regard to Sushant’s death, Sonu Nigam requested music industry to be more welcoming to the new singers in his Instagram video post because a bigger mafia is found in the industry. He believes that there might be suicide cases in music industry as well if things don’t change.


He wrote, “#SonuLiveD | vlog 33. You might soon hear about Suicides in the Music Industry”, along with the video. With a good morning wish to his followers followed by the condolence on Sushant’s death and 20 soldiers who were killed by the Chinese troops, he went on to request the music industry.


Through this Vlog I have a request for our music companies. Recently, actor Sushant Singh Rajput died. Tomorrow you could hear about a singer, or a music composer or a writer. The mafia that exists in the music industry is bigger than that in films, unfortunately. I can understand that it is important for people to do business and everybody wants to rule it. I was lucky that I came here at a younger age and could avoid the trap. But the younger kids who have just arrived in the industry, it is very tough for them. I talk to many young girls and boys who keep telling me this and that. They are troubled.


"(What happens is that the) Producer, director, and the music composer, all are ready to work but then the music company says, 'this isn't our artist'. I can understand that you guys control the music on radio, films etc. But please don't do this. This isn't right. The power lies with two people of the music industry, owning two companies”.


He added, “I got away from this. I am very happy in my own world. But I have seen the frustration in the eyes of new singers, composers and lyrics writers. If they die, you will also be questioned. Please be kind to newcomers. Be easy on them”.


He said, “I have been working in the music industry since 89, if you can do this to me, what will you be doing with those younger kids. Please be a little easy on them”. He also revealed that many of his songs have been dubbed too. He requested people to not take any offence by his statement and stated that creativity should never be curbed.  


“God bless you all and live like a happy fraternity”, he ended his post with this.

With more than 160,000 views, his fans are pouring out their admiration for him in the comments section.
