For a while now, the original desi rapper Baba Sehgal has been lying low… off our radar, at least. But he just made a startling leap back into the Twitter-light with a new song. This one is his ‘tribute’ - he calls it – to the HUGE hit from the freshly minted lovebirds Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, Senorita. Remember that one? We told you about it here
Baba’s version is unusual, to say the least. It goes…
Rakha hai teri mom ne naam Sarita,
Likhi hai meine tere lia kavita.
Suraihi jaisa gal-la-la-la-la-la.
Ring mein leke aaya, flat bhi sell kariaya.
And more of that kind of thing. Watch the video here:
Yes, it is a bit startling, especially with 3 of the rapper in one frame. We are still a little taken aback just thinking of why we are doing this story! And yes, he can sing and keeps true to the original tune. And he adds his characteristic rap section too. It comes to an end as unexpectedly, but since Baba Sehgal is not easy to digest in triplicate, that is probably a good thing.
The song and its video are being enjoyed by his fans and followers, we found. And Baba thanks them with: “Thank you guys for appreciating the hard work that goes in making such soundtracks. I purely do it for love and fun and most importantly keeping all of you in mind. You all are my support, energy and strength that gives me enough inspiration to create. THINGS TAKEN LIGHTLY ARE RIGHTLY.”
Bless the man!
