Indian singer Sonu Nigam got emotional while listening to Pakistan’s young rock star Hadia Hashmi. In his latest vlog, Sonu Nigam was listening to the Nescafe Basement’s hit song Bol Hu and expressed how awestruck he was by the song and the vocals of the Hadia Hashmi.

The song, released in February 2019, features Hashmi and Soch the Band. They performed in the fifth season of the show Nescafe Basement.

“It’s been a while since anything has touched my soul like this! What a song, what lyrics, what composition! Wah! Soch the band, kya soch hai!”, Nigam said in the video.


Hashmi was only eight years old at the time. Many celebrities praised the young star and Bol Hu was also featured in 2019 Bollywood thriller Malang.


Soch then thanked the singer for his words. “We have grown up following you and listening to your music so it’s like a dream come true for us. Thank you, Sonu Sir! It is always gratifying and nice to hear something heartfelt like this from a fellow artist across the border.”

Zulfi, the producer of Nescafe Basement, also posted a video on Facebook to thank Nigam.

“I just saw Sonu Nigam’s video on Bol Hu and I thought it only made sense that I express my gratitude in a similar manner,” he said. 

“I don’t only have one thing to thank him for, there are multiple things. The first thing I would want to thank him for is the way his reaction must have elated the spirits of Adnan, Rabi and Hadia. There’s no comparison to that. They would want to work even more seriously towards their dreams. God has given you a gift; do not let it go to waste”, he added. 

From an artist to an artist. Dil se.Thank you Sonu Nigam from me and my team of artists. Your reaction has made a difference. A difference that will matter.
