Facts About Badshah
Many of you may have questions like “Does Badshah smokes?: Then your answer is here No he doesn’t smoke at all and neither does he drink alcohol, which is quite good for an individual and a better plus point than Honey Singh in health terms. You will realize later in the article why am I comparing both two.
You may also be surprised by knowing that Badshah was not the super cool stud kind of kid in his school days instead he was a studious child and had a very deep interest in the Mathematics subject during his school days.
I mean you can guess by his actual name that he was into learning and studying a lot: Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia, doesn’t that sound like a book worm to you? it sure does to me, believe me, I was thinking about this very same thing before writing down this article.
He was also a part of his school’s music choir and had an interest in singing as well, well this one is not so surprising or a lesser-known fact about Badshah though.
Badshah got into music for his career during his college days when he was doing his college education and pursuing graduation from PEC University in Chandigarh.
Now this one is sure surprising for you, Badsahsh initially wanted to be an IAS officer but ended up being a rapper, which turned out pretty good for him and sees what I told you his name had book worm in it, and the fact that he wanted to be an IAS shows he was kind of deep into studies and let’s say book worm.
He started his career with the famous fellow rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh and his formed band of rappers in 2012: Mafia Mundeer.
Many rappers had started with Honey Singhini internal days, and most of them are famous now like for example Raftaar and Badshah both started alongside Honey Singh and they both are quite famous now and apparently, they both later had some beef with Honey Singh himself.
The Getup Jawani song which was a huge hit had also a rap by Badshah in it. and in 2012 he had some fued with honey Singh and they both parted their ways.
Controversies and Fueds
Badshah and Honey Singh had a good feud after honey Singh’s return to the Bollywood music industry and Hip-hop career. While on a promotional tour, a journalist asked Honey Singh that what is his next plan of action as the Bollywood industry had been taken over by Badshah in his absence
Honey Sigh made a controversial comment ” Rolls Royce chalayi hai apne kabhi, Rolls Royce or Nano mein Bahut Farq hota hai” and this here started the controversy between both two rappers and media got what they wanted, quite a cunning move by the reporter by the way.
Later that, Badshah responded to this insult by saying that Nano is present in huge numbers on the road while Rolls Royce is hardly ever seen and that is only in big cities, so in my opinion, it was a pretty childish comeback but maybe Badshah was trying to conclude that he has taken over in numbers and Honey Singh era is just lost now.
The fight didn’t stop in just media controversy but it was also reported that they faced each other at a friend’s party and a heated argument led them both to manhandle each other.
In August 2020, last year, Badshah paid a huge fine of Rs. 72 Lakh Rupees in order to gain more views on his release song music video: “Pagal Hai”
Badshah claimed that this song has broken the record of Taylor Swift and Korean band BTS of gaining the most views in 24 hours and that his song got over 75 million views in just 24 hours of release.
However, Google denied this fact and revealed the fake views and wrong practices by Badshah to Mumbai officials, and then it came to light that Badshah had been engaged in buying views and followers for gaining more views and followers and tricking algorithms of Instagram and youtube.
