Amid Nepotism Debate, Sonu Nigam & Monali Thakur Expose Music Industry's 'Mafiagiri'
After Sushant Singh Rajput's death, the nepotism debate started once again and not only in Bollywood. Recently, singer Sonu Nigam came forward and revealed that there is more nepotism in the music industry and also talked about music mafia. Monalia Thakur backed the singer and stated that she doesn't care to get movie songs because she is more worried about her mental health.
Sonu said, "Today, Sushant Singh Rajput has died. An actor has died. Tomorrow you might just hear of a singer, a composer, or a lyricist doing the same because there is a bigger mafia in the music industry than the film industry. I understand that you have to do business, people want to rule the business."
He accused Bhusan Kumar of functioning like a mafia. check out the full video:
Monali supported Sonu stating that she also had a taste of nepotism. She stated, "Yes, yes, it is very true. It is true that nepotism exists in a country like this which has so many talented people."
She further said, "I was thankful to him because he is a senior and he has been in the industry for so long. He is a very big name and an iconic musician. He is over all these things... But it is so true that there is lot of ‘mafiagiri’ in the music industry. Nobody gets their due. That is the reason why I do not like the atmosphere and ecosystem of the music industry. I don’t even try to get movie songs anymore. I alienated myself because I care for my mental health."
Adnan Sami also joined the conversation and wrote, "The Indian Film & Music Industry SERIOUSLY needs a ‘Herculean‘ SHAKE UP. Especially in the context of music, New Singers, Veteran Singers, Music Composers & Music Producers - who are being exploited to the HILT!! ‘Fall into the DICTAT or you’re OUT’... Why is creativity beyond ‘CONTROLLED’ by those you have no clue about ‘creativity’ & are trying to play GOD??"
Nepotism is not new to this industry. However, it is yet to be seen if elite class come forward in defense.
