Yo Yo Honey Singh – the name needs no introduction – an underdog musician who started with Youtube songs and become a national sensation with his sheer hardwork, creativity and of course, a brilliant understanding of youth’s taste!
The singer-music director-actor reached such magnum heights of success and fame that no Bollywood film would be considered a complete package without a Yo Yo Honey Singh song in the ensemble. From his Bollywood songs to singles, all his tracks became a massive rage. Kids mugged up the lyrics of his tracks to each and every club/wedding playing his music – Honey Singh was a big sensation and ruled the music industry like no one else.
But, suddenly this superstar vanished! He was doing a popular television reality show as a judge, which he left mid-day and since then no body heard of him. Rumours were riff that he was in a rehabilitation centre because of drug and alcohol addiction. An apparent reason was also his rivalry with friend-turned-competitor Raftaar, who was ceaselessly climbing the stairs success and giving him a tough competition. Raftaar was one key member of Honey’s music friends and had also contributed in the initial life-changing songs of Yo Yo. Things turned sour when Raftaar entered the music industry and Honey Singh gave an interview, where he called him a ‘stranger’ whom he had never met.
After disappearing for more than a year, Honey finally revealed, “his is the first time I am talking about it as I want my fans to know what happened to me. Nobody knows about this, and I wanted to tell the world myself, not through a spokesperson. The last 18 months were the darkest phase of my life, and I wasn’t in a state to talk to anyone. I know there were rumours that I was in rehab (for drug overdose), but I was in my Noida house throughout. The truth is I was suffering from bipolar disorder. It went on for 18 months, during which I changed four doctors, the medication wasn’t working on me and crazy things were happening, I must confess that I was bipolar and an alcoholic, which aggravated the condition.”
Industry insiders also say that Honey couldn’t just do without drugs. The chronic drug addiction had taken a toll on his life. However, the good news is, Yo Yo Honey Singh is back after a break of 2 years. He is making a big comeback in his very own signature style. He took it to Twitter to break the news.
He is returning with a remake of Punjabi song Dil Chori Saada Ho Gaya, originally sung by legendary singer Hans Raj Hans. The song is for the movie Sonu Ke Tittu ki Sweety.
The song will release tomorrow and we are excited AF!
