But my calling was Asian-fusion where I fused both English and Punjabi. I have always promoted Punjabi and will do that in future too. When I entered the music industry and created fusion genre, my father did not talk to me for four years!”

    I was spotted by a famous British pop star by the name of Neville Staples of the Two Tone Band ‘The Specials’ & ‘Fun Boy Three’ whilst working in my fathers shop. I used to have a habit and tendency of singing to the radio and practicing my vocal techniques. Neville just happened to be listening to me from outside the shop and I guess I still count my lucky stars today. He liked what he heard and invited me to the recording studio to record some demos. Before I knew it we were recording my first album and the rest is history.”
