Acclaimed singer Sonu Nigam has said that Zee has announced a ban on him. According to reports, Sonu was banned because he raised his voice in support of Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas.
The singer tweeted “So now Zee announces a ban on me. :) What do I say.. God bless everyone. Wonder should it not be illegal to ban someone on the pretext of nothing in a democracy? Influencing others to not work with an individual. Well legal or illegal, one thing’s for sure. Banning someone, is definitely unGodly.”
A few days ago, Zee had broadcasted a video of Kumar Vishwas quoting in saying ‘Latak Gaya’, a comment he made in relation to farmer Gajendra Singh’s suicide incident.
Sonu had retweeted that tweet with the words “I am far from politics but I feel hat truth should come out for the sake of my poet friend Kumar Vishwas’
Zee Music has also announced that they will not buy any songs sung by Sonu Nigam.
The incident has created a furore on Twitter with fans of the legendary singer tweeting #IStandWithSonuNigam.
