Singer Mika Singh knows how to touch the chords of his fans. Be it his energetic performance at his show or his humorous interaction at the meet and greet a day before the concert, the King Mika Singh left Sydney wanting more.

At a sold out concert at Whitlam Leisure Centre at Liverpool, Mika Singh rocked Sydney with his pulsating songs. Organised by the pioneer of musical concerts Cinestarr Events, the show was a complete family entertainer and value for money as the singer performed non-stop for hours. A day before the concert, his fans and media also got a chance to interact with him at the Grand Marion at Harris Park.

Mika Singh is not only a singer, but a songwriter, composer, an actor and a brilliant performer. But what makes his heart tick is his fans. “All my songs are different and I try giving my fans a different tune every time. That is how I stay close to my audience. I have a good hold on the Punjabi market and Bollywood. But I would also like to show my respect to the singers from whom I have learnt so much. In my concert I would pay a tribute to Jagjit Singh, Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar,’’ said Mika at the meet and greet before the concert.

True to his words, the singer delighted his fans at the concert not only with his chartbusters but with the favourite numbers of legendary singers from the past decades. While the younger audience was treated to his songs ”˜Aaj ki party meri taraf se, Dil bhi gaya re, Gandi baat, Mauja hi Mauja, Heer to badi sad hai ji, Subah hone na de, Desi Boys, Sawan mein lag gayi aag, Dil ne mari entriyaan’ etc, the rest thoroughly enjoyed his renditions of old songs ”˜Mast kalandar, roop tera mastana, Om Shanti Om, Yeh Shyam maastani, Mera Geet amar kar do, Raat baaki, Yaad aa raha hai tera pyaar’.

Being a true Punjabi at heart, Mika did not disappoint his Punjabi fans and sang evergreen hits ”˜Mera long gawacha, Bolo Tarara’, but it was his superhit ”˜Gabru’ from 2001 that brought his fans jiving on the dance floor.

Looking dashing on the stage in his full bling, singer Mika Singh proved he is the ”˜Badshah’ of Bollywood singing not the ”˜Badmash’ of Bollywood singing. “I’m a good boy but people used to call me a bad boy. These days whoever wears a gold chain and dark sunglasses is a bad boy. So I’m a bad boy with a good heart,” acclaims Mika Singh.

An entertaining performer, singer Mika Singh made the audience dance, laugh and sing with him. Be it his powerful voice or his dancing moves on the stage, Mika was complete entertainment. The sound and lighting was a perfect match to his grand persona. And now we know why every song of his is a chartbuster, because he gives his full strength and dedication to his songs. “My target is always that my songs are a hit. And my director expects the same from me. I have sung for many actors but would like to sing with Aamir Khan one day,” says Mika.

“I’m so thankful to all for bringing me here and giving me so much love. I’m here after two years and love performing in Australia. Our target is not to make money, there is enough money in India, when we come overseas we want to meet our fans and bring our music to you,” says humbly Mika Singh. On this note, he left no stone unturned as Sydney begged for more!
