It has been a few days since a controversy emerged out involving Bollywood music composer and rapper, Badshah and Birbhum-based folk singer Ratan Kahar. Well, it was after the release of Badshah’s new video song ‘Genda Phool’, that Badshah was accused of plagiarism.
Ratan Kahar is a folk singer living in the Birbhum district of West Bengal. He is the man who wrote this song ‘Boro Loker Biti Lo’ in the year 1972. However, Badshah gave no credits to the man and used the lyrics in his video.
On 1st April, during his live session on Instagram promised to extend financial help towards Ratan Kahar and his family. He had said:
“It will be a duty and honour to help an artiste like Ratan Kahar.”
He also took to his Twitter and released a statement. Here, check out the Tweet:
