Preparations for the upcoming Independence Day are in full swing, in Pakistan, and across the border as well. This has caused a recent controversy to engulf Hip-Hop and Rap Star, Mika Singh!
Singh spoke to his fans through his Independence day ‘show’ supporting peace between the two nations India and Pakistan. However, his video angered a lot of fans and the pop-star received an immense amount of backlash as his message was taken in the wrong way.
Here’s how Singh’s words created a stir over social media with Twitterati calling him ‘unpatriotic!’

Greedy Bollywood has no respect for Indian sentiments. I hope sanity prevails and Indians boycott this event. #ShameonUMika for doing this.

The Indian singer did not step down from his stance and tweeted after the backlash he received:
“PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN, LET’S CELEBRATE INDIA’S INDEPENDENCE DAY TOGETHER!”
He then went on to defend himself by raising a question on Atif and Sonu Nigam performing together!
