BBC Radio One and Asian Network presenter Nihal is to tie up with the fusion entertainment portal Desi Hits! The experienced radio and television presenter will contribute a weekly blog on the latest news and reviews from British Asian music artists and give his opinions on the Asian music scene in the UK.

Nihal commented: “Each and every week I will be giving the Desi Hits!family my take on the global urban desi scene from the heart of the UK; whether it’s Rishi Rich’s secret reggae alter ego, Rouge’s worst nocturnal habits, or Imran Khan’s most embarrassing moment on tour. I’ll be bringing users that exclusive fire that you expect from Desi Hits! I am living and breathing the urban desi scene here in the UK, so if you want to know about the next big artist or song before anyone else online, then Nihal’s UK Flex is for you!”

Nihal, who has previously hosted television shows on BBC One, BBC Two and MTV Base, will also provide an exclusive video on the site.

Anjula Acharia-Bath, Founder and Chair of Desi Hits! added: “Desi Hits! prides itself in being hot on the scene with the latest news and gossip from the entertainment world globally. We are really excited to bring Nihal on to our global team given his immense amount of experience and knowledge, particularly in the UK, which we would like to extend worldwide.”

Nihal’s UK Flex kicks off from Monday 7th December on Desi Hits!
