Legendary musician, Nadeem Saifi has spoken exclusively about the “betrayal” he experienced by singers for not crediting Nadeem Shravan in recent appearances on reality TV shows.
In an exclusive interview on London’s Lyca Radio, Saifi told Raj Baddhan on ‘Drivetime’, “They performed well. They became superstars in their own rights. But at one point of time they, in my personal opinion, of course was kind of betrayal because they never gave us the credit for it (music). Right now, when you see them on national television, they never ever give credit to Nadeem Shravan of the songs they are singing. Out of most of the songs sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik but they don’t like to take our names. For that, I was very hurt.”
Asked if he had ever raised the issue with Kumar Sanu, Saifi said, “At one time, I spoke directly with Kumar Sanu and I had said that you was on the show on Sony Television and throughout the show you didn’t bother to take the name (Nadeem Shravan), did they stop you? Did the television crew stop you to give due credit. He said ‘No, No, No – Whatever the answer was’. Its sad.”
The full interview aired live and exclusive on Lyca Radio as a part of ‘Nadeem Shravan Day’ on Monday 31st May 2021. Lyca Radio is available in London on 1458AM and DAB digital radio. Its also available worldwide on LycaRadio.com and smart-speaker.
