famous singer of the country Sonu Nigam It’s birthday today. He is 49 years old. Sonu Nigam is a big name in the world of singing today, but his childhood was spent in a lot of struggle. He has worked hard for success. Apart from Hindi, he has sung songs in other languages including Kannada, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, Odia, Bhojpuri, Gujarati, Malayalam and Nepali. Sonu started singing at the age of 4.
Last year in ‘The Anupam Kher Show’, Sonu Nigam recalled the times of his struggle. He told how his father and mother struggled. Sonu told that Papa had run away from home at the age of 15 and a half, because he wanted to do something. He saw hunger, ate one meal at a time, slept on the way and at the railway station. Such was his struggle.
Because of this father did not allow the show to be done in Mumbai
He tells that his father and mother did love marriage and both used to sing on stage. My father did the real struggle, not me. A year after I was born, we shifted from Faridabad to Delhi, where stage shows started happening. We sang songs in every event including wedding, fair. While narrating another anecdote related to father, he said that father did not let me do shows in Bombay. He was afraid that if I do a show in Mumbai, I might have an affair with someone, man will become a friend. Some will learn to drink, some will teach to party, it will divert attention. Will struggle only in Mumbai, will show in Delhi.
These songs changed the life of Sonu Nigam
Sonu’s father’s name is Agam Kumar Nigam and mother’s name is Shobha Nigam. He told that he got success after a long time. Singer told that the song ‘Accha sila diya tune mere pyar ka’ from the album had become a hit. This increased the money in my shows. But the songs of the films were not available. Sing songs in many languages. After this a music show came, which changed things, I reached door to door.
He told that later the song ‘Sandesh Aate Hain’ from the border came, it increased the confidence of the people. Later, things changed with Pardes’ Yeh Dil Deewana. Then ‘Suraj Hua Maddham’, ‘Kal Hona Ho’… Changes started coming from them. Sonu Nigam has recently been honored with ‘Padma Shri’.
