3. Mika Singh
There’s a saying that goes like that there’s no party complete without the songs of Mika. You can see this as he is a singer having his prime genre as Bhangra! Besides being a singer, he has a star reputation, if you know what I mean. Singh has quite a stage presence and has acted in a number of reality shows. He has been a live performer, bringing people in droves. And, unlike other singers, he is not entirely dependent on B’wood film offers. He keeps releasing his own albums, with which he has quite a successful record. And, that is no surprise, if you’ve heard him. He has this lurking mischievous tone in almost all of his songs, that one can’t help but just get drawn in and give in to the magic. Whenever there is his song playing, the party is not far, and vice versa. With a career of 20 years in the industry, he still has the unrelenting drive to effortlessly entertain people. He might be getting on in years, but the aura is same – a young, playful energy.
We knew we had a hitmaker in him right from 1998 when Saawan Mein Lag Gayi Aag came out. He has delivered some great dance numbers in Dil Mein Baji Guitar (Apna Sapna Money Money), Ganpat (Shootout at Lokhandwala), Mauja Hi Mauja (Jab We Met), and Singh Is Kinng (the title film). He has gifted us with more in some peppy numbers like Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, Dhinka Chika, Dhanno, Saari Duniya Mere Ispe, Saj Dhaj Ke, and 440 Volt. It seems like the composer just knows it is made for Mika when they see the title of the song.
In 2018, too, he rocked it with Party Chale On (Race 3), Bhoot Aaya (Nanu Ki Jaanu) and a few more. Party vibe is in the air! And will be there in ’19, ’20 and forever. His music is eternal.
